Nietzsche's Ethics and his War on 'Morality'
Reviews and Awards

May's book stands out from the rest in his rigorous analysis of the implicit principles of life-enhancement and in his challenging of both the necessity of Nietzsche's rejection of the transcendent and the viability of his individualism to his overall project of life-enhancement. - International Philosophical Quarterly Vol XLI, No.1, issue 161
