Nietzsche's Gay Science is one of his most remarkable, important, and famous works. Moreover, it contains all of his main philosophical themes and is arguably indispensable for understanding Nietzsche's philosophy. Langer's Nietzsche's Gay Science: Dancing Coherence is the first book that helps the reader grapple with the complexity of The Gay Science in its entirety. In a clear, engaging, and very accessible manner Langer provides a detailed, sequential reading of The Gay Science.
