In NDPR, Tracy Colony reviews Interpretation of Nietzsche's Second Untimely Meditation, translated by Ullrich Haase and Mark Sinclair.
From Heidegger's perspective, Nietzsche's attempted decentering of subjectivity on the basis of its earlier rootedness in life itself does not overcome the subject but amounts to merely an inversion which remains complicit with the early modern concept of the subjectum. This recourse to the living merely "replaces the cogito by a vivo" which in no way leads beyond the subjectum but instead brings modernity to its final exhaustive configuration. Rather than drawing into question the ultimacy of life as an ontological ground, Nietzsche reiterates the self-conservation of the subject which, despite its vital transcendence, is merely a "going beyond oneself in order to come all the more back to oneself and only to oneself."
