Untimely meditations by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( )

27 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 2,845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four short works in Untimely Meditations were published by Nietzsche between 1873 and 1876. They deal with such broad topics as the relationship between popular and genuine culture, strategies for cultural reform, the task of philosophy, the nature of education, and the relationship between art, science and life. They also include Nietzsche's earliest statement of his own understanding of human selfhood as a process of endlessly 'becoming who one is'. As Daniel Breazeale shows in his introduction to this new edition of R.J. Hollingdale's translation of the essays, these four early texts are key documents for understanding the development of Nietzsche's thought and clearly anticipate many of the themes of his later writings. Nietzsche himself always cherished his Untimely Meditations and believed that they provide valuable evidence of his 'becoming and self-overcoming' and constitute a 'public pledge' concerning his own distinctive task as a philosopher
Nietzsche : the man and his philosophy by R. J Hollingdale( Book )

67 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic biography of Nietzsche was first published in the 1960s and was enthusiastically reviewed at the time. The biography chronicles Nietzsche's evolution from the pious son of a country parson to the university professor who at the age of twenty-five had already conceived the basis of his mature philosophy. The book discusses his friendship and breach with Wagner, his attitude toward Schopenhauer, and his indebtedness to Darwin and the Greeks. It follows the years of his maturity, with his struggles with ill-health, his wanderings in Italy, France, and Switzerland, his abortive affair with Lou Salome, and his mental collapse in 1889. The final part of the book considers the development of the Nietzsche legend during his years of madness. Into this chronicle is integrated an account of the evolution of the philosophy from The Birth of Tragedy to Ecce Homo"--Jacket
The will to power by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

27 editions published between 1964 and 1968 in English and German and held by 1,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daybreak : thoughts on the prejudices of morality by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daybreak marks the arrival of Nietzsche's 'mature' philosophy and is indispensable for an understanding of his critique of morality and 'revaluation of all values'. This volume presents the distinguished translation by R.J. Hollingdale, with a new introduction that argues for a dramatic change in Nietzsche's views from Human, All Too Human to Daybreak, and shows how this change, in turn, presages the main themes of Nietzsche's later and better-known works such as On the Genealogy of Morality. The main themes of Daybreak are located in their intellectual and philosophical contexts: in Nietzsche's training as a classical philologist and his fascination with the Sophists and Thucydides; in the moral philosophies of Kant and Schopenhauer, which are the central foci of Nietzsche's critique of morality; and in the German Materialist movement of the 1850s and after, which shaped Nietzsche's conception of persons. The edition is completed by a chronology, notes and a guide to further reading. -- Back cover
Human, all too human : a book for free spirits by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

27 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This remarkable collection of almost 1,400 aphorisms was originally published in three instalments. The first (now Volume I) appeared in 1878, just before Nietzsche abandoned academic life, with a first supplement entitled The Assorted Opinions and Maxims following in 1879, and a second entitled The Wanderer and his Shadow a year later. In 1886 Nietzsche republished them together in a two-volume edition, with new prefaces to each volume. Both volumes are presented here in R.J. Hollingdale's distinguished translation (originally published in the series Cambridge Texts in German Philosophy) with a new introduction by Richard Schacht. In this wide-ranging work Nietzsche first employed his celebrated aphoristic style, so perfectly suited to his iconoclastic, penetrating and multi-faceted thought. Many themes of his later work make their initial appearance here, expressed with unforgettable liveliness and subtlety. Human, All Too Human well deserves its subtitle 'A Book for Free Spirits', and its original dedication to Voltaire, whose project of radical enlightenment here found a new champion."--Publisher's description

Beyond good and evil : prelude to a philosophy of the future by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

28 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and German and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the French Revolution the influence of woman in Europe has DECLINED in proportion as she has increased her rights and claims; and the "emancipation of woman," insofar as it is desired and demanded by women themselves (and not only by masculine shallow-pates), thus proves to be a remarkable symptom of the increased weakening and deadening of the most womanly instincts
Essays and aphorisms by Arthur Schopenhauer( Book )

17 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schopenhauer believed that human action is determined not by reason but by 'will', and his writing demonstrates his innovative-and pessimistic-attitude towards human conduct
Thus spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

39 editions published between 1961 and 2003 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" remains his most famous and influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. With blazing intensity and poetic brilliance, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic & free

Ecce homo : how one becomes what one is by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

29 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In late 1888, only weeks before his final collapse into madness, Nietzsche (1844 1900) set out to compose his autobiography, and Ecce Homo remains one of the most intriguing yet bizarre examples of the genre ever written. In this extraordinary work Nietzsche traces his life, work and development as a philosopher, examines the heroes he has identified with, struggled against and then overcome Schopenhauer, Wagner, Socrates, Christ and predicts the cataclysmic impact of his forthcoming revelation of all values'. Both self-celebrating and self-mocking, penetrating and strange, Ecce Homo gives the final, definitive expression to Nietzsche's main beliefs and is in every way his last testament

The tales of Hoffmann by E. T. A Hoffmann( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This selection of Hoffmann's finest short stories vividly demonstrates his intense imagination and preoccupation with the supernatural, placing him at the forefront of both surrealism and the modern horror genre. Suspense dominates tales such as Mademoiselle de Scudery , in which an apprentice goldsmith and a female novelist find themselves caught up in a series of jewel thefts and murders. In the sinister Sandman , a young man's sanity is tormented by fears about a mysterious chemist, while in The Choosing of a Bride a greedy father preys on the weaknesses of his daughter's suitors. Master of the bizarre, Hoffman creates a sinister and unsettling world combining love and madness, black humour and bewildering illusion"--Publisher's description

The waste books by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"German scientist and man of letters Georg Christoph Lichtenberg was an 18th-century polymath: an experimental physicist, an astronomer, a mathematician, a practicing critic both of art and literature. He is most celebrated, however, for the casual notes and aphorisms that he collected in what he called his Waste Books. With unflagging intelligence and encyclopedic curiosity, Lichtenberg wittily deflates the pretensions of learning and society, examines a range of philosophical questions, and tracks his own thoughts down hidden pathways to disconcerting and sometimes hilarious conclusions. Lichtenberg's Waste Books have been greatly admired by writers as very different as Tolstoy, Einstein, and Andre Breton, while Nietzsche and Wittgenstein acknowledged them as a significant inspiration for their own radical work in philosophy. The record of a brilliant and subtle mind in action, The Waste Books are above all a powerful testament to the necessity, and pleasure, of unfettered thought."
