I haven’t been posting as much lately, since I’ve been at the last stages of the Nietzsche book. The end is at hand: just assembling biblio, checking references, etc. I usually regret expressing pride, but I still will say I am damned please with the book. It’s an unusual combo of biography and philosophy, organized like an opera (with an overture and four acts, and an “intermezzo” in the middle, which is a one-act play about Nz encountering the Greek gods). It does really capture my fascination and feelings for Nz, along with my assessment. And I think many will find it an interesting read. Still finding a publisher for it.
Next project: a book with Acumen on Spinoza’s radical theology, ms due in a year!
I’m quite excited about it, especially in light of your previous treatment of biographical matters in your essay on Nietzsche’s illness. Despite the good fortune of having visited Silz-Maria long ago, I’ve otherwise generally refrained from learning much about Nietzsche’s life beyond what can be gleaned from his texts. I was obscurely afraid the biographical would somehow contaminate the philosophical for me, but I have no such fear in regard to your book.
Wow! it sounds like a productive year. My congratulations and I hope I can feel as good about my own work come July. Looking forward to reading the book…
