Many people will think of this books proposal, to
join anarchism and Nietzsche, as audacious. Nietzsche
is still linked in many peoples minds to fascism, and
anarchism to simplistic notions of political or social
organization. However, anarchism the political
project which aims at the abolition of all forms of
power, control and coercion remains entitled to
appropriate the work of one of the greatest
iconoclasts of all time. Although Nietzsche was rather
harsh on his anarchist contemporaries, he nevertheless
shared with them a vision of the total transformation
of everyday life. The notion of a transvaluation of
values remains not merely compatible with, but an
integral component of the anarchist project, and the
idea of philosophy with a hammer underlies the
anarchist commitment to radical social
transformation. I Am Not A Man, I Am Dynamite!
examines various facets of the historical, political
and philosophical conjunctions between this
transgressive philospher and this transformative
political vision.
