Abstract

The paper examines how two analytic scholars, Maudemarie Clark and Robert Lanier Anderson, overcame the major self-referential inconsistency in Nietzsche's epistemology, which analytic scholars have long avoided. The author outlines four key interpretive issues for analytics in Nietzsche scholarship, which stem from Nietzsche's writing style and from his critique of the practice of philosophy in general. The author illustrates how it is possible to overcome these particular interpretive issues by taking his concerns into consideration, and by highlighting how his concerns are compatible with analytic practices and values.
