Reaction and Revolution: Responses to Domenico Losurdo’s 'Nietzsche'

Recently translated into English by Gregor Benton, Losurdo’s book is epic in scope, covering a wide range of philosophical and historical issues that not only situate Nietzsche in his 19th century context, but addresses some of the most burning theoretical and political issues of our times. Losurdo’s Nietzsche represents one of the greatest examples of Marxist scholarship and criticism, and we will discuss the book’s significance for not only how we see Nietzsche, but how we understand socialist theory today. Losurdo’s Nietzsche shows us that the problems of the 19th century are not over yet.
