Book review: Nietzsche: filosofo della libertà

Nietzsche, Antichrist, politics, book reviews, Agonist


Nietzsche once opined that “a good review of a research book consists in better solving the problem that book advances” (KGW IV/2, 24 [53]). To some extent, Nietzsche’s ambitious conception of criticism aides in offering a review of Laura Langone’s Nietzsche: filosofo della libertà (Nietzsche: Philosopher of Freedom). Langone deals with a complex and centuries-old theme, as it appears and develops through the Nietzschean corpus: that of freedom. The book attempts to answer questions pertinent to this theme: can we become free? If so, how might we achieve this goal of freedom? What does being ‘free’ really mean, for Nietzsche? How might this freedom affect our lives?
