Nietzsche's and Dewey's Contextual Challenge To Value Theory

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The historical context of this project is situated at the intersection of post-Kantian European philosophy and American Pragmatism as it concentrates on the works of Friedrich Nietzsche and John Dewey. Nietzsche and Dewey are two of the most significant figures in post-Kantian value theory, and they cast a long shadow both within and beyond the philosophical discussion. Thus, spelling out the deep similarities between their views is in itself significant. However, the focal point of this project is not merely to draw historical parallels between Nietzsche's and Dewey's views, but rather to work out the common space that is created and shared by these figures within the realm of value theory. By weaving together the thought of Nietzsche and Dewey it explores their common contextual outlook regarding the sources of values; a view which presents an important challenge to traditional philosophical ways of thinking about values.
