      From The Birth of Tragedy on, Nietzsche worked to comprehend the
        nature of the individual. Richard White shows how Nietzsche was inspired
        and guided by the question of personal "sovereignty" and how
        through his writings he sought to provoke the very sovereignty he described.
        White argues that Nietzsche is a philosopher our contemporary age must
        therefore come to understand if we are ever to secure a genuinely meaningful
        direction for the future. Profoundly relevant to our era, Nietzsche's
        philosophy addresses a version of individuality that allows us to move
        beyond the self-dispossession of mass society and the alternative of selfish
        individualism--to fully understand how one becomes what one is.
      A volume in the International Nietzsche Studies series, edited by
        Richard Schacht
