Gorfu, together with his unusual perception and originality delved deep into the recesses of Nietzsche's sick soul and uncovered the individual of Nietzsche for what he's, at most sensible a charlatan and anti-philosopher or at worst the ravings of an egotistic masked egomaniac. i think Nietzsche and his international has been irreparably broken and debunked by way of this essay, any modern "philosopher" worthy his/her salt will be most sensible served to significantly examine and interpret what Gorfu is offering-an unique dialectical scalpel-in the method of human reasoning and inquiry within the present twenty first century. What did it for me, used to be Gorfu's research of Lutheranism and that "odd" impotence of motion, i discovered that half to be actually extraordinary. these forms of insights may merely have come from a non "western" philosopher. Many thank you is due the writer even for that express details. I strongly urge academia to take heed. ...it was once easily a publication you can hardly ever positioned down. thank you for the awakening Mr. Gorfu. -M Roncevich Gorfu Contra Nietzschemakes a strong case that Nietzsche's ethical philosophy is fake. even if this makes the booklet retro, "untimely," Gorfu takes heavily what Nietzsche took such a lot heavily, his "revaluation of values."

Gorfu Contra Nietzsche, like every critical touch upon Nietzsche, is not just a serious assessment of Nietzsche, but in addition a passionate and acidic research of convinced points of his works which are troubling and not easy. Gorfu's e-book underscores the truth that there can't be a unique Nietzscheanism, to borrow from Michel Foucault. it's a herculean activity to have interaction one of many 3 'masters of suspicion' in Western philosophy as Gorfu has performed during this e-book. it can be effortless to brush aside a few points of Gorfu's severe research of Nietzsche as too own or vitriolic, yet they can not be missed.
