About the Journal

The Agonist is an Open Access journal dedicated to the investigation of Nietzsche’s works and his influences on contemporary culture in different fields such as arts, philosophy, religion, and science, to name only a few. In the spirit of his philosophical pursuit, the journal publishes essays within Nietzsche scholarship and beyond academia. The journal also examines Nietzsche’s relationship to figures from previous ages, as we have done in one of our issues entitled “Nietzsche in History.” Furthermore, Nietzsche continues to inspire many artistic, cultural, and intellectual movements. We explore his influences on such movements with authors who work in these areas, as we have done in the issue on Nietzsche and Trans- and Post-humanism. In addition to essays and book reviews, we also publish interviews and exegeses. We publish only previously unpublished materials. The Agonist is an international peer-reviewed journal, which is read all over the world. 

The Agonist is published by Transnational Press London on behalf of the Nietzsche Circle. The journal is made available only through the modest subscription collections we receive from libraries and readers. If you believe in the mission of this journal, we kindly ask you to support us.
