About this product
- DescriptionDecadence in philosophy is truths dedicated to the intensification of thought. For decadents the best truths don't describe experience accurately, they incite the most consequent thinking. This doesn't imply wanting truths that are wrong. But, for decadents, every philosophic conclusion is valued purely in terms of its ability to generate more thought: If thought longer exists to pursue truth-or stolid truths-it exists, then, to serve and accelerate thinking. In Decadence of the French Nietzsche author James Brusseau discusses French Nietzscheanism from Nietzsche through his appropriation by Gilles Deleuze. He also discusses philosophical decadents who participate in contemporary thought and its set of convictions and desires For Brusseau it is one figure that represents the modern philosophical decadent, contemporary theory is the habitation of these convictions and desires. Original and controversial in its conception of contemporary modes of modern theory and thought, Decadence of the French Nietzsche shows how the contorting of philosophy occurs, why, and-in sweeping terms-what it means to raise thinking above any stolid truth.
