Homo Natura

Nietzsche, Philosophical Anthropology and Biopolitics

First Edition

Vanessa Lemm

Published by Edinburgh University Press


  • Innovatively engages Nietzsche's philosophy with contemporary debates on philosophical anthropology, psychoanalysis, gender studies, biopolitics and posthumanism
  • Offers a new reading of parrhesia (truth speaking): from the ancient cynics via Nietzsche's idea of Redlichlkeit (honesty/probity), to Foucault's recently published reading of parrhesia in Ancient Greek philosophy
  • Provides a unique reading of Nietzsche's view on women, gender and sexual difference
