Annotation

Publisher Description

Represents a selection from Nietzche's notebooks to find out what he wrote on nihilism, art, morality, religion, and the theory of knowledge, among others. Nietzsche's notebooks, kept by him during his most productive years, offer a fascinating glimpse into the workshop and mind of a great thinker, and compare favorably with the notebooks of Gide and Kafka, Camus and Wittgenstein. The Will to Power, compiled from the notebooks, is one of the most famous boooks of the philosophy. Here is the first critical edition in any language. Down through the Nazi period The Will to Power was often mistakenly considered to be Nietzche's crowning systematic labor; since World War II it has frequently been denigrated. In fact, it represents a stunning selection from Nietzsche's notebooks, in a a topical arrangement that enables the reader to find what Nietzsche's wrote on a variety of subjects. Walter Kaufmann, in collaboration with R. J. Holilngdale, brings to this volume his unsurpassed skills as a Nietzsche translator and scholar. Professor Kaufmann has included an approximate date of each note. His running footnote commentary offers information needed to follow Nietzsche's train of thought, and indicates, among other things, which notes were eventually superseded by later formulations. The comprehensive index serves to guide the reader to the extraordinary riches of this book.

Author Biography

Nietzsche has been proclaimed the seminal figure of modern philosophy as well as one of the most creative and critically influential geniuses in the history of secular thought.

Kirkus US Review

In a new translation by Walter Kaufmann and R. J. Hollingdale, and edited by Walter Kaufmann this is "the first critical edition, in any language, of Nietzsche's most controversial work." Dr. Kaufmann discusses the nature of the work, a selection from Nietzsche's notebooks of the years 1883 through 1888, but presented here in Schlechta's systematic arrangement to facilitate reading, particularly through all the notes dealing with art or religion or the theory of knowledge. Includes a running commentary on the text, a comprehensive index, and indications of which notes were later used in Nietzsche's books. (Kirkus Reviews)
