The studies deal with basic questions of Nietzsche's philosophy.

Werner Stegmaier, born in 1946, was the founding director of the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Greifswald after the collapse of the Soviet Union and established the North and East European Forum for Philosophy, which brought the Institute of Philosophy around the Baltic Sea into new conversation with each other and there to philosophical reorientations contributed. He has worked in a variety of fields, including metaphysics and its basic concept of substance, great philosophers from antiquity to the present, the philosophical relevance of Jewish tradition, and above all to the philosophy of Nietzsche. He was always concerned with questions of First Philosophy, especially what constitutes our reality, how it is conveyed through signs and communication, how concepts exist in time and what we are dealing with in thinking. He introduced the concept of orientation as an elementary concept of philosophy and developed a comprehensive philosophy of orientation.
