Untimely meditations by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( )
18 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 2,424 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 )
42 editions published between 1965 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,813 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."--BOOK JACKET
Daybreak thoughts on the prejudices of morality by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( Book )
6 editions published between 1982 and 1997 in English and held by 1,219 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 )
15 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and German and held by 972 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 )
18 editions published between 1974 and 2003 in English and German and held by 791 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

Ecce homo : how one becomes what one is by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( Book )
16 editions published between 1979 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 606 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
