The Damnation of Labor in the Films of Béla Tarr

After more than two decades of increasingly enigmatic, but unique presence on the world cinematic stage with nine fiction films, one documentary, one TV production (Macbeth), and four shorts, the Hungarian director Béla Tarr has unequivocally declared his latest work, The Turin Horse (A torinói ló, 2011, Hungary, France, Germany, Switzerland, USA) to be his last. And indeed, as it will be seen from the conclusion to this study, The Turin Horse is Tarr’s programmatic piece in reverse since it throws in high relief the overarching themes of his films, especially those of labor and its relation to power, religion, society, and personal freedom.

This is a lively and engaging introduction to the contentious topic of Nietzsche's political thought. It traces the development of Nietzsche's thinking on politics from his earliest writings to the mature work in which he advocates aristocratic radicalism as opposed to 'petty' European nationalism. The key ideas of the will to power, eternal return and the overman are discussed and all Nietzsche's major works analysed in detail, such as Beyond Good and Evil and The Genealogy of Morals, within the context of the concerns of modern political theory. The book concludes with an assessment of Nietzsche's enduring relevance and of the insights afforded by contemporary liberal and feminist readings. This textbook will be essential for all students of Nietzsche and of the history of political ideas. It includes a chronology of Nietzsche's life and works and a guide to further reading.
