Subject: Re: [Nietzsche] Psychoanalysis & the Strategies of Resistance

One of the best analyses of N's WP situated within the overall oeuvre of
Nietzsche could be found in Michel Haar's NIETZSCHE AND METAPHYSICS
(originally Gallimard, 1993; published in English by SUNY press in 98?). The
first chapter (the subversion of categories and identities) on particular is
a great introduction to any undergraduate or graduate student interested in
learning where the WP fits into N's overall scheme. Chapter 5 of that book
(Critique and Subversion of Subjectivity), is along with chapter 1, some of
the best work to debunk Heidegger's self-serving analysis of N. as the last
metaphysician (and Haar, who was a Heideggerian, discovered late in his life
the importance and relevance of N.).

Hope this helps,

Um, as a general rule when someone has a beginner's
question, the most helpful answer does not involve a
referral to a ~1000pg Heidegger work.  THat said, the
Nietzsche volumes are the clearest texts of Heidegger
that I can recall.  

The quick and dirty answer: the WTP (along with the
the eternal return) is the ordering principle all life
and matter and thus it is Nietzsche's metaphysical
"indulgence".. ie, although N spoke out against
philosophical systematizing, he too was unable to
resist it.  According to Heidegger, although Nietzsche
claimed to be beyond metaphysics, he was actually the
last great metaphysician.. which of course meant that
Heidegger had finally surpassed metaphysics --
according to Heidegger.
