The Paul De Man Notebooks

In this text, Paul de Man explains his outline for a proposed monograph on Friedrich Nietzsche. The book seeks to make a methodological contribution to the study of the relationship between the linguistic and the historical interpretation of nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature. According to de Man, the juxtaposition of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Nietzsche has not been studied, partly because Nietzsche has nothing good so say about Rousseau, partly because their main common interest has for a long time been neglected in works dealing with these two authors. In preparatory studies for this book, de Man has begun to establish the systematic link between, on the one hand, the theoretical considerations on language in Rousseau's Second Discourse and in Nietzsche's early course on rhetoric, and, on the other hand, the historical, ethical and political themes that remain prevalent in their subsequent works.

Keywords:   rhetoric, Paul de Man, Friedrich Nietzsche, literature, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, language, Second Discourse
