The literary career of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) spanned less than twenty years, but no area of intellectual inquiry was left untouched by his iconoclastic genius. This title offers a selection of Nietzsche's writings.
A selection from Nietzche's major philosophical works designed to give an overview of this thought. The literary career of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) spanned less than 20 years but a vast range of subjects. R.J. Hollingdale presents the breadth and depth of Nietzche's thought. Whether he is addressing conventional western philosophical problems or breaking new ground, Nietzsche is always thought-provoking and often startling. We see a mind grappling with the fundamental issues of human existence, striving to extend the boundaries of thought and concluding that in the face of so much that is inexplicable there is no scientific or moral truth.
Friedrich Nietzsche was born near Leipzig in 1844, the son of a Lutheran clergyman. At 24 he was appointed to the chair of classical philology at Basle University, where he stayed until forced by his health to retire in 1879. Here, he wrote all his literature, including Thus Spake Zarathustra, and developed his idea of the Superman. He became insane in 1889 and remained so until his death in 1900. R. J. Hollingdale translated eleven of Nietzsche's books and published two books about him; he also translated works by, among others, Schopenhauer, Goethe, E. T. A. Hoffmann, Lichtenberg and Theodor Fontane, many of these for Penguin Classics. He was the honorary president of the British Nietzsche Society. R. J. Hollingdale died on 28 September 2001.
