Friedrich Nietzsche on Wagner - The Case Of Wagner, Nietzsche Contra Wagner, Selected Aphorisms

Friedrich Nietzsche on Wagner - The Case Of Wagner, Nietzsche Contra Wagner, Selected Aphorisms

In reading these essays we are apt to be deceived, by their virulent and forcible tone, into believing that the whole matter is a mere cover for hidden fire-a mere blind of sthetic discussion concealing a deep and implacable personal feud which demands and will have vengeance. In spite of all that has been said to the contrary, many people still hold this view of the two little works before us; and, as the actual facts are not accessible to everyone, and rumours are more easily believed than verified, the error of supposing that these pamphlets were dictated by personal animosity, and even by Nietzsche's envy of Wagner in his glory, seems to be a pretty common one. In Wagner's music, in his doctrine, in his whole concept of art, Nietzsche saw the confirmation, the promotion-aye, even the encouragement, of that decadence and degeneration which is now rampant in Europe; and it is for this reason, although to the end of his life he still loved Wagner, the man and the friend, that we find him, on the very eve of his spiritual death, exhorting us to abjure Wagner the musician and the artist. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a 19th-century German philosopher, poet, composer and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism.

Political Writings of Friedrich Nietzsche: An Edited Anthology

Political Writings of Friedrich Nietzsche: An Edited Anthology

This anthology brings together for the first time selections of Nietzsche?s political commentary found throughout his corpus, including some never before translated writings from his youth. The texts were carefully chosen to highlight Nietzsche?s political views and arranged chronologically to allow the reader to trace the development of Nietzsche?s political thought from his youth to his final writings of 1888. In their introduction and prefaces, Frank Cameron and Don Dombowsky insightfully demonstrate that Nietzsche was an observer of and responded to the political events which shaped the Bismarckian era. In the past two decades Nietzsche?s political thought has received increasing attention, yet only rarely has there been any attempt to situate it historically. This anthology thus provides an essential resource for understanding Nietzsche?s political ideas as they were stirred by the conflicts of this turbulent era.

Reinterpreting Modern Culture: An Introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche's Philosophy (Purdue University Press Series in the History of Philosophy)

Reinterpreting Modern Culture: An Introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche's Philosophy (Purdue University Press Series in the History of Philosophy)

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) presents himself several times as a physician of culture. He considers it his task to make a diagnosis of the culture of his age, to point to the latent or patent diseases, but also to the possibilities to overcome them. His diagnosis, prognosis, and prescriptions implied an overcoming of traditional interpretation of what is going on in the main domains of culture: knowledge, morality, religion, and art. This book presents Nietzsche's thoughts on knowledge and reality, on morality and politics, and on religion. Preceding these main dialogues is an introduction on the art of reading Nietzsche's texts and on his art of writing.

Friedrich Nietzsche (Routledge Critical Thinkers)

Friedrich Nietzsche (Routledge Critical Thinkers)

It is difficult to imagine a world without common sense, the distinction between truth and falsehood, the belief in some form of morality or an agreement that we are all human. But Friedrich Nietzsche did imagine such a world, and his work has become a crucial point of departure for contemporary critical theory and debate. This volume introduces this key thinker to students of literary and cultural studies, offering a lucid account of Nietzsche's thought on: * anti-humanism * good and evil * the Overman * nihilism * the Will to Power. Lee Spinks prepares readers for their first encounter with Nietzsche's most influential texts, enabling them to begin to apply his thought in studies of literature, art and contemporary culture.

The complete works of Friedrich Nietzsche

The complete works of Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche sessay, Richard Wagner tn Bayreuth, appeared in 1876, and his next publication was his present work, which was issued in 1878. A comparison of the books will show that the two years of meditation intervening had brought about a great change in Nietzsche sviews, his style of expressing them, and the form in which they were cast. The Dionysian, overflowing with life, gives way to an Apollonian thinker with a touch of pessimism. The long essay form is abandoned, and instead we have a series of aphorisms, some tinged with melancholy, others with satire, several, especially towards the end, with Nietzschian wit at its best, and a few at the beginning so very abstruse as to require careful study. Since the Bayreuth festivals of 1876, Nietzsche had gradually come to see Wagner as he really was. The ideal musician that Nietzsche had pictured in his own mind turned out to be nothing more than a rather dilettante philosopher, an opportunistic decadent with a suspicious tendency towards Christianity. The young philosopher thereupon proceeded to shake off the influence which the musician had exercised upon him. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)

Marine Lover of Friedrich Nietzsche (European Perspectives)

Marine Lover of Friedrich Nietzsche (European Perspectives)

Published in France in 1980, Marine Lover is the first in a trilogy in which Luce Irigaray links the interrogation of the feminine in post-Hegelian philosophy with a pre-Socratic investigation of the elements. Irigaray undertakes to interrogate Nietzche, the grandfather of poststructuralist philosophy, from the point of view of water. According to Irigaray, water is the element Nietzsche fears most. She uses this element in her narrative because for her there is a complex relationship between the feminine and the fluid. Irigaray's method is to engage in an amorous dialogue with the male philosopher. In this dialogue, she ruptures conventional discourse and writes in a lyrical style that defies distinction between theory, fiction, and philosophy.

Thomas Mann and Friedrich Nietzsche. Eroticism, Death, Music, and Laughter.(Value Inquiry Book Series 85) (Central European Value Studies)

Thomas Mann and Friedrich Nietzsche. Eroticism, Death, Music, and Laughter.(Value Inquiry Book Series 85) (Central European Value Studies)

Traditional interpretations of Thomas Mann's relation to Nietzsche's writings plot out a simple relation of earlier adulation and later rejection. The book argues that Mann's disavowal of Nietzsche's influence was, in the words of T.J. Reed, a necessary political act when the repudiation of Nietzsche's more hysterical doctrines required such a response. Using a genealogical method, the book traces how Mann labors ambivalently under the shadow of Nietzsche's writings on his own political artistry through a detailed analysis of Mann's Death in Venice, Dr. Faustus, the Joseph tetralogy, and Confessions of Felix Krull, Confidence Man. Using the recurring Nietzschean themes of eroticism, death, music, and laughter as a guide, it arrives at a rough picture of how Mann both takes up and discontinues Nietzsche's poetic heritage. The book derives the vision of the interrelationships binding these four leitmotiv elements from Durer's magic square as depicted in Melancholia I. The link with Durer is far from arbitrary because Mann directly aligned Nietzschean insight with Durer's world of passion, sympathy with suffering, the macabre stench of rotting flesh, and Faustian melancholy.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

The decisive influence of Friedrich Nietzsche on H.L. Mencken is readily acknowledged in the vast literature on the great American journalist and social critic. However, Mencken's 1908 study of the philosopher has been relegated to footnote status by Mencken's critics and biographers and has been largely ignored by Nietzsche scholars. There are good reasons for reversing this judgment. Mencken's work was one of the first comprehensive and sympathetic treatments of Nietzsche's thought in the English language. It is a provocative engagement with the German philosopher's complex and elusive ideas, enhanced by a style that reverberates with a verve and dynamism approaching Nietzsche's own. Mencken presents a view of Nietzsche that elucidates the latter's complex and contentious form of the "gospel of individualism" while evincing a keen appreciation of his unrivalled capacity for critical analysis. The historical scope of Nietzsche's thought is fully evident in Mencken's analysis as is its application to modern societies and politics. In tracing the biographical and intellectual impetus for Nietzsche's relentless attacks on conventional moralities and established modes of thought, Mencken discerned both an ideal and a method for grappling with social and cultural issues that remain salient in our own time.

Human, All Too Human II and Unpublished Fragments from the Period of Human, All Too Human II (Spring 1878?Fall 1879): Volume 4 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Human, All Too Human II and Unpublished Fragments from the Period of Human, All Too Human II (Spring 1878?Fall 1879): Volume 4 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Volume 4 of The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche contains two works, Mixed Opinions and Maxims (1879) and The Wanderer and His Shadow (1880), originally published separately, then republished together in the 1886 edition of Nietzsche's works. They mingle aphorisms drawn from notebooks of 1875-79, years when worsening health forced Nietzsche toward an increasingly solitary existence. Like its predecessor, Human, All Too Human II is above all an act of resistance not only to the intellectual influences that Nietzsche felt called upon to critique, but to the basic physical facts of his daily life. It turns an increasingly sharply formulated genealogical method of analysis toward Nietzsche's persistent concerns?metaphysics, morality, religion, art, style, society, politics and culture. The notebook entries included here offer a window into the intellectual sources behind Nietzsche's evolution as a philosopher, the reading and self-reflection that nourished his lines of thought. The linking of notebook entries to specific published aphorisms, included in the notes, allows readers of Nietzsche in English to trace for the first time the intensive process of revision through which he transformed raw notebook material into the finely crafted sequences of aphoristic reflection that signal his distinctiveness as a philosophical stylist.

Friedrich Nietzsche on the Philosophy of Right and the State

First English translation of Nikos Kazantzakis?s 1909 doctoral dissertation on Nietzsche. This book represents the first English translation of Nikos Kazantzakis?s 1909 dissertation on Friedrich Nietzsche?s political and legal philosophy. Before Kazantzakis became one of the best-known modern Greek writers, he was an avid student of Nietzsche?s thought, discovering Nietzsche while studying law in Paris from 1907 to 1909. This powerful assessment of Nietzsche?s radical political thought is translated here from a restored and authentic recent edition of the original. Its deep insights are unencumbered by the encrustations that generations of Nietzsche?s admirers and detractors have deposed on the original Nietzschean corpus. The book also offers a revealing glimpse into the formative stage of Kazantzakis?s thought.

The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche

The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche

The first book on Nietzsche ever to appear in English, this examination by legendary journalist H.L. Mencken is still one of the most enlightening. Mencken wrote this book while still in his 20s, but his penchant for thoroughness was evident even at that young age?in preparation for writing this book, he read Nietzsche's works in their entirety, mostly in the original German. A brief biographical sketch is followed by clear and thorough explanations of Nietzsche's basic concepts and attitudes. Analyzed are Nietzsche's much-misunderstood concept of the superman, his concept of eternal recurrence, his rejection of Christianity, and his basic rationalism and materialism. Included are two essays on Nietzsche that appeared in Mencken's magazine The Smart Set subsequent to the publishing of the original edition of this book. Nearly a century after its original publication, this remains one of the clearest, most concise, and entertaining introductions to Nietzsche to date.

Constellation: Friedrich Nietzsche and Walter Benjamin in the Now-Time of History

Constellation: Friedrich Nietzsche and Walter Benjamin in the Now-Time of History

Constellation is the first extended exploration of the relationship between Walter Benjamin, the Weimar-era revolutionary cultural critic, and the radical philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The affinity between these noncontemporaneous thinkers serves as a limit case manifesting the precariousness and potentials of cultural transmission in a disillusioned present. In five chapters, Constellation presents the changing figure of Nietzsche as Benjamin encountered him: an inspiration to his student activism, an authority for his skeptical philology, a manifestation of his philosophical nihilism, a companion in his political exile, and ultimately a subversive collaborator in his efforts to think beyond the hopeless temporality-new and always the same-of the present moment in history. By excavating this neglected relationship philologically and elaborating its philosophical implications in the surviving texts of both men, Constellation produces new and compelling readings of their works and through them triangulates a theoretical limit in the present, a fractured "now-time" suspended between madness and suicide, from which the collective future regains a measure of consequential and transformative vitality.

Beyond Good and Evil / On the Genealogy of Morality: Volume 8 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Beyond Good and Evil / On the Genealogy of Morality: Volume 8 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch)

Beyond Good and Evil is Nietzsche's first sustained philosophical treatment of issues important to him. Unlike the expository prose of the essayistic period (1872-76), the stylized forays and jabs of the aphoristic period (1878-82), and the lyrical-philosophical rhetoric of the Zarathustra-period (1882-85), Beyond Good and Evil inscribes itself boldly into the history of philosophy, challenging ancient and modern notions of philosophy's achievements and insisting on a new task for "new philosophers." This is a watershed book for Nietzsche and for philosophy in the modern era. On the Genealogy of Morality applies Nietzsche's celebrated genealogical method, honed in the earlier aphoristic writings, to the problem of morality's influence on the human species. In three treatises that strikingly anticipate insights appearing much later in Freud's Civilization and Its Discontents (1930), Nietzsche provides an anthropological psychograph of our species, revealing the origins of the concepts of good and evil, the roles played by guilt and bad conscience, and the persistence of ascetic ideals. Manifesting a hopeful yet unsentimental assessment of the human condition, these books resonated throughout the 20th century and continue to exert broad appeal.

In Love with Life: Reflections on Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra

In Love with Life: Reflections on Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra

In his preface to Ecce Homo, Friedrich Nietzsche says: With [ Thus Spoke Zarathustra ] I have given mankind the greatest present that has ever been made to it so far. This book, with a voice bridging centuries, is not only the highest book there is, the book that is truly characterized by the air of the heights the whole fact of man lies beneath it at a tremendous distance it is also the deepest, born out of the innermost wealth of truth, an inexhaustible well to which no pail descends without coming up again filled with gold and goodness. Perhaps only a contemporary mystic like Osho could truly understand what Nietzsche meant by this statement. In Love with Life shares Osho?s understanding of both Nietzsche the man and of his seminal work, with extraordinary clarity and relevance to readers in the 21st century. Here, the reader learns much about the mysterious and revolutionary Persian mystic Zarathustra (Zoroaster), whom Nietzsche chose as a spokesperson. The result is an enchanting journey through a world where life is celebrated, not renounced, and where timeless truths prevail over the lies and distortions that continue to cripple our efforts to become healthy and whole.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: . VIII CIVILIZATION On the surface, at least, the civilization of today seems to be moving slowly toward two goals. One is the eternal renunciation of war and the other is universal brotherhood: one is "peace on earth" and the other is "good will to men." Five hundred years ago a statesman's fame rested frankly and solely upon the victories of his armies; today we profess to measure him by his skill at keeping these armies in barracks. And in the internal economy of all civilized states we find today some pretence at unrestricted and equal suffrage. In times past it was the chief concern of all logicians and wiseacres to maintain the proposition that God reigned. At present, the dominant platitude of Christendom - the cornerstone of practically every political party and the stock-intrade of every politician - is the proposition that the people rule. Nietzsche opposed squarely both the demand for peace and the demand for equality, and his opposition was grounded upon two arguments. In the first place, he said, both demands were rhetorical and insincere and all intelligent men knew that neither would ever be fully satisfied. In the second place, he said, it would be ruinous to the race if they were. That is to say, he believed that war was not only necessary, but also beneficial, and that the natural system of castes was not only beneficent, but also inevitable. In the demand for universal peace he saw only the yearning of the weak and useless for protection against the righteous exploitation of the useful and strong. In the demand for equality he saw only the same thing. Both demands, he argued, controverted and combated that upward tendency which finds expression in the law of natural selection. "The order of castes," said Nietzsche, ".

Magisterarbeit, die am 01.08.1997 erfolgreich an einer Universit t - Gesamthochschule in Deutschland eingereicht wurde. Einleitung: Parallelen oder sogar Kongruenz im Denken von Heinrich Heine und Friedrich Nietzsche? Mutet das zun chst nicht paradox an! Heine, der furchtlose K mpfer mit der spitzen Feder, der sich f r Werte wie soziale Gerechtigkeit, Freiheit und Revolution stark gemacht hat - er, der "linke Dichter", soll etwas gemein haben mit dem "Gottesm rder", dem "Wertezertr mmerer" Nietzsche, der in elit rer Weise den "Untergang" der Menschen und die Heraufkunft eines " bermenschen" verk ndete? Worin sollen sie denn bestehen, diese Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen Heine, dem revolution ren Geist, dem schw rmerischen Dichter der Liebe, der von seinen Freunden geliebt wurde, bei seinen Feinden und Neidern hingegen verha t war ob seines scharfz ngigen Spottes ber die Menschen und die Gesellschaft seiner Zeit. Und auf der anderen Seite Nietzsche, dem Dekonstrukteur des gesellschaftlich berkommenen, mit seinen zum Teil nur schwer verdaulichen "Tiraden", die den "strikten Egoismus" verk ndend die "H rte" gegen sich selbst ebenso einforderten wie die "H rte" gegen Andere. Die vorliegende Untersuchung hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, durch eine schwerpunktorientierte Analyse ausgew hlter Denkinhalte beider Autoren dieser in Frage stehenden und in der literaturwissenschaftlichen Forschung m.E. bis dato allenfalls unbefriedigt beantworteten "Problematik" nachzugehen. Zwar hat die literaturwissenschaftliche Forschung eine Unmenge an Material ber die hier zur Diskussion stehenden Autoren zusammengetragen und viele Winkel ihres Denkens eingehend "durchleuchtet". Aber der "blinde Fleck" ist nicht zu leugnen: In der Auseinandersetzung um den ideengeschichtlichen Kontext des 19. Jahrhunderts werden Heine und Nietzsche nur selten in einem Atemzug genannt. Wo doch - wie sp ter zu zeigen sein wird - Nietzsche in einigen charakteristischen Bereichen in Heine eine.

Making society safe against thieves and fire, and thoroughly fit for all trade and traffic, and transforming the State in a good and evil sense into a kind of Providence-these are low, moderate, and by no means indispensable aims, which we ought not to strive after with the highest means and instruments in existence-these we ought to reserve for our highest and rarest aims. Our age, however much it may talk about economy, is a lavisher: it lavishes the most precious thing of all-the intellect. 180 Wars-The great wars of the present times are the results of the study of history. 181 Governing-Some people govern from a mere passion for governing; others in order not to be governed.

But whenever a subtler and deeper intellect shows consistency in its higher methods, the spectators deny the existence of character. This is why cunning statesmen usually act their comedy under a cloak of rough consistency. 183 The old and the young-"There is something immoral in Parliaments," so many seem to reason even now, "for there one may have views quite opposed to the government."

Some people, think that Neitzche's philosphies were used as a guide for hitler's destruction. . Nietzsche influenced George Brandes who developed a philosophy called "aristricatic radicalism" which was inspired by Nietzsche's Overman theory.

Surveying Nietzsche's entire intellectual career from his years as a student in Bonn and Leipzig during the 1860s to his genealogical project of the 1880s, Christian Emden contributes to a historically informed discussion of Nietzsche's response to the political predicaments of modernity, and sheds new light on the intellectual and political culture in Germany as the ideals of the Enlightenment gave way to the demands of the modern nation state. This is a distinguished addition to the series of Ideas in Context, and a major reassessment of a philosopher and aphorist whose stature among post-enlightenment European thinkers is now almost unrivalled.

Henri Lichtenberger (1864-1941) was from 1887-1907 Professor of Foreign Literature in Nancy, from then until 1934 Professor of Literature and German Philology at the Sorbonne. He wrote numerous books on German literature, language, history and philosophy, in particular, his essays on Friedrich Nietzsche, whom he personally visited in 1898. Lichtenberger maintained a lively correspondence with Nietzsche?s sister Elisabeth F rster-Nietzsche, who translated our book into German, published in 1899. The two co-authored another biography of Nietzsche, published in 1928 as Nietzsche und sein Werk. He presented a positive picture of the political and economic impact of National Socialism in Germany in his 1936 book L?Allemagne nouvelle.

Friedrich Nietzsche, Collection

Friedrich Nietzsche, Collection

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844? 1900) was a German philologist, philosopher, cultural critic, poet and composer. He wrote several critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism. Nietzsche's key ideas include the Apollonian/Dionysian dichotomy, perspectivism, the Will to Power, the "death of God", the bermensch and eternal recurrence. One of the key tenets of his philosophy is the concept of "life-affirmation," which embraces the realities of the world in which we live over the idea of a world beyond. It further champions the creative powers of the individual to strive beyond social, cultural, and moral contexts. His radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth has been the focus of extensive commentary, and his influence remains substantial, particularly in the continental philosophical schools of existentialism, postmodernism, and post-structuralism. His ideas of individual overcoming and transcendence beyond structure and context have had a profound impact on late-twentieth and early-twenty-first century thinkers, who have used these concepts as points of departure in the development of their philosophies. Most recently, Nietzsche's reflections have been received in various philosophical approaches which which move beyond humanism, e.g. metahumanism, posthumanism, transhumanism.

Selected Letters of Friedrich Nietzsche Edited, With a Preface, By, Dr. Oscar Levy Authorized Translation (Classic Reprint)

Friedrich Nietzsche sprivate correspondence consists of a selection from the five-volume edition published in Germany between the years 1900-1909. Private letters are now recognized all the world over as a most important supplementary trait to a literary mans portrait, re vealing as they do the more homely and intimate side of an authors mind and character. The special and additional value of Nietzsche sprivate correspondence consists in this, that here we have a writer of the most forbidding aspect, a prophet of almost superhuman inspiration, a hermit inhabiting a desert of icy glaciers, coming down, so to say, to the inhabited valley, to the familiar plain, where he assumes a human form and a human speech, where he exhibits a human heart and a human sympathy.

Friedrich Nietzsche: On The Future of Our Educational Institutions

Friedrich Nietzsche: On The Future of Our Educational Institutions

Friedrich Nietzsche - On The Future of Our Educational Institutions. Translated, With Introduction, By J.M. Kennedy. Complete New Edition. The title I gave to these lectures ought, like all titles, to have been as definite, as plain, and as significant as possible; now, however, I observe that owing to a certain excess of precision, in its present form it is too short and consequently misleading. My first duty therefore will be to explain the title, together with the object of these lectures, to you, and to apologise for being obliged to do this. When I promised to speak to you concerning the future of our educational institutions, I was not thinking especially of the evolution of our particular institutions in Bale. However frequently my general observations may seem to bear particular application to our own conditions here, I personally have no desire to draw these inferences, and do not wish to be held responsible if they should be drawn, for the simple reason that I consider myself still far too much an inexperienced stranger among you, and much too superficially acquainted with your methods, to pretend to pass judgment upon any such special order of scholastic establishments, or to predict the probable course their development will follow. On the other hand, I know full well under what distinguished auspices I have to deliver these lectures?namely, in a city which is striving to educate and enlighten its inhabitants on a scale so magnificently out of proportion to its size, that it must put all larger cities to shame. This being so, I presume I am justified in assuming that in a quarter where so much is done for the things of which I wish to speak, people must also think a good deal about them. My desire?yea, my very first condition, therefore, would be to become united in spirit with those who have not only thought very deeply upon educational problems, but have also the will to promote what they think to be right by all the means in their power.

Unfashionable Observations: Volume 2 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche)

Unfashionable Observations: Volume 2 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche)

This new translation is the first to be published in a twenty-volume English-language edition of The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, the first complete, critical, and annotated translation of all of Nietzsche's work. The Stanford edition is based on the Colli-Montinari edition, which has received universal praise: "It has revolutionized our understanding of one of the greatest German thinkers"; "Scholars can be confident for the first time of having a trustworthy text." Under the title Unzeitgem sse Betrachtungen, Nietzsche collected four essays published separately between 1873 and 1876: "David Strauss the Confessor and the Writer," "On the Utility and Liability of History for Life," "Schopenhauer as Educator," and "Richard Wagner in Bayreuth." The title, newly translated as Unfashionable Observations, spells out the common impulse linking these essays: Nietzsche's inimical attitude toward his "time," understood broadly as all the mainstream and popular movements that constituted contemporary European, but especially German, "culture" in the wake of the Prussian military victory over the French in 1871. The Unfashionable Observations are foundational works for Nietzsche's entire philosophy, prefiguring both his characteristic philosophical style and many of the major ideas he would develop in his later writings. This is the first English translation to include Nietzsche's variants to the published text.

Human, All Too Human I / A Book For Free Spirits: A Book for Free Spirits, Volume 3 (The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsch) (v. 3, Pt. 1)

This is the second volume to appear in an edition that will be the first complete, critical, and annotated English translation of all of Nietzsche?s work. Volume 2: Unfashionable Observations, translated by Richard T. Gray, was published in 1995. The edition is a new English translation, by various hands, of the celebrated Colli-Montinari edition, which has been acclaimed as one of the most important works of scholarship in the humanities in the last quarter century. The original Italian edition was simultaneously published in French, German, and Japanese. This volume of Human, All Too Human, the first of two parts, is the earliest of Nietzsche?s works in which his philosophical concerns and methodologies can be glimpsed. In this work Nietzsche began to establish the intellectual difference from his own cultural milieu and time that makes him our contemporary. Published in 1878, it marks both a stylistic and an intellectual shift away from Nietzsche?s own youthful affiliation with Romantic excesses of German thought and culture typified by Wagnerian opera.
