This chapter presents a reading of Nietzsche's ‘On Truth and Lie in the Extramoral Sense’ — a text not only explicitly about the rhetoric of tropes but also one that performs a certain ‘rhetorical deconstruction’ as it mounts its critiques of knowing (and thus consciousness), of language, of concepts (both those of natural science and those of ethics), and of the category of the aesthetic. Since the text cannot do this without at the same time deploying a host of its own metaphors of metaphor, it is subject to a ‘self-deconstruction’ that nevertheless leaves a remainder rather than an infinite regress or a mise en abîme.

Keywords:   Nietzsche, tropes, rhetoric, language, aesthetic, metaphor
