Book News
This book is a playful yet serious (see, postmodern already!) exploration of the self in the postmodern condition. Using devices such as mock dialogues between Derrida, Cixous, Bataille, Nietzsche, and Mr. Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, the authors explore issues such as psychiatry, consumerism, and numerous aspects of Nietzsche's philosophy. Illness, health, and mental illness are discussed both in relation to Nietzsche's experience of them and within the context of postmodernity. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
