‘Nietzsche, Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics’ (editors: Marco Brusotti and Herman Siemens) is the first of a series of three volumes on 'Nietzsche's Engagements with Kant and the Kantian Legacy' (series editors: Marco Brusotti, Herman Siemens, João Constancio, and Tom Bailey). This first volume concerns epistemology and the problem of metaphysics. Phenomenon and thing in itself, empirical and transcendental, space and time, intuition and thought, the I, self- observation and self- consciousness, concepts and judgements, categories and schemata, teleological judgement: on these and other issues Nietzsche took a stance that can be put in relation to Kant. The question of historical mediation – not only through Schopenhauer – arises from the beginning: the early Nietzsche sees a thread running from Kant through Schopenhauer to his own ‘tragic’ philosophy. On the other side, the late Nietzsche presents his own views for the most part as a radical subversion of Kant’s philosophy. Nietzsche himself thus encourages the widespread view that his thought is incompatible with Kant’s in style and results. While the difference between the two styles of thought must be conceded, Nietzsche still thinks ‘with and against’ Kant and the Kantian legacy. Dealing with different phases and aspects of his philosophy, the chapters of this first volume take up the question of the extent to which he criticizes and the extent to which he reformulates Kant’s critique of metaphysics.
