The past two decade or so has seen a powerful resurgence of interest in the thought of Friedrich Nietzshe (1844-1900) on a global scale. A growing number of collection of essays on Nietzsche has been appearing recently- a happy circumstance, for the most part, in view of the anthology's being such appropriate genre for secondary literature on a primarily of poetic -mystic thinker. Nietzscheis above all a writer in many voices and problem with books written about his work is that they have been mainly monological, with the author speaking in only one voice. There is immensely greater possibility that justice will be done to the polyphony of Nietzsche's thought and the diversity of his styles in anthology, where an actual multiplicity of different voices in invited to discourse on his texts.
The present collection improves the odds still further by bringing together a number of voices in to the dialogue. We hope such an anthology may lend new bloom and fresh perspective to our picture of thinker called Nietzsche. The multiple perspectives and traditions presented by twelve eminent scholars in Nietzshe After Hundred Years illuminate hitherto neglected facets of Nietzsche's thinking and confirm his role as a thinker of genuinely global stature.
