Orientations Press

Our publishing is inaugurated by Werner Stegmaier’s An Orientation to the Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, translated from the original German by the author and Reinhard G. Mueller. The book provides a methodological Nietzsche interpretation, a well-founded overview of Nietzsche’s main philosophical distinctions, and, as a result, a new understanding of his famous concepts of the will to power, the overman, the eternal return of the same, and others. It simultaneously opens up Nietzsche’s philosophical cosmos to our current orientations. The English version adds a postscript on how to study Nietzsche today, after his posthumous notes have been edited in completely revised transcriptions revealing in which ways he actually oriented himself philosophically. From them, we may learn more not only about philosophy, but also, as Kant already taught, about philosophizing.

The official publication date is September 10, 2022, but you can already download your advance eBook here on our website.
