The Nietzsche reception in the Nordic countries

The body that remained on the ground is placed in the intended extension of Harald Beyer's comprehensive work Nietzsche and the North - a pioneering work , in relation to which the 14 contributions presented here must be considered as an update and further reflection. The intention is to create an up-to-date elucidation and discussion of the reception and processing of Nietzsche's philosophy in the Nordic countries, as well as to ask the question going forward, whether the processing of Nietzsche and his provocative ideas, including the controversial idea of ​​the superman, has been taken to the bottom at all.

The book asks whether one can with the same right recognize the impossibility of a comprehensive confrontation and instead think that we probably never can or should finish taking consequences from Nietzsche. Hence the book's title: The body that remained on the ground.
