This chapter begins by discussing Nitzche's interpretation of postmodernism without its literary and rhetorical surface, as well as his historical importance. It also talks about other philosophers who claim historical status for themselves. Next, it discusses that the book's interpretation is broadly based on Immanuel Kant's, thus, reconciling two competing branches of Nietzsche's interpretation that dominate the present scholarship and discussions. Subsequently, this chapter talks about Germany in the late 19th century. It then discusses two figures who also made great efforts in restoring interest in Kant during the late 19th century — Kuno Fischer and Friedrich Lange. It also evaluates three interpretations of Kant that Nietzsche knew best — Schopenhauer's, Kuno Fischer's, and Friedrich Lange's.

Keywords:   Nietzsche, Immanuel Kant, Germany, 19th century, Kuno Fischer, Friedrich Lange, Schopenhauer, postmodernism
