But what was Nietzsche to Freud -- an intuitive anticipation, a precursor, a rival psychologist? Assoun moves beyond the seduction of these attractive analogies to a deeper analysis of the relation between these two figures. He reconstructs Freuds encounter with Nietzsche, his personal interpretations and the contribution of Nietzsches champions. He also examines the thematic similarities that appear on the surface to reveal close affinities between the theorists. His argument is that these analogies are really the symptom of an open, ongoing dialogue between Freud and Nietzsche (and Marx) which remains vital to critical theory today.
