Nietzsche : a philosophical biography by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 1,433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No other modern philosopher has proved as influential as Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1990) & none is as poorly understood. In the first major biography in decades, Rudiger Safranski re-creates the anguished life of Nietzsche while simultaneously assessing the philosophical implications of his morality, religion, & art. Plagued by illness & profoundly shaped by his tortured sexuality, Nietzsche was a man of masks & mood swings, a thinker who called himself "dynamite" yet labored under the weight of compulsive self-consciousness. Posing apt questions & at time offering unorthodox interpretations of Nietzsche's philosophical writings, Safranski offers a brilliant portrait of a historical figure in a work that is as groundbreaking as it will be long-lasting
Martin Heidegger : between good and evil by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the century's greatest philosophers, without whom there would be no Sartre, no Foucault, no Frankfurt School, Martin Heidegger was also a man of great failures and flaws, a Faustus who made a pact with the devil of his time, Adolf Hitler. The story of Heidegger's life and philosophy, a quintessentially German story in which good and evil, brilliance and blindness are inextricably entwined and the passions and disasters of a whole century come into play, is told in this biography. Heidegger grew up in Catholic Germany where, for a chance at pursuing a life of learning, he pledged himself to the priesthood. Soon he turned apostate and sought a university position, which set him on the path to becoming the star of German philosophy in the 1920s. Rüdiger Safranski chronicles Heidegger's rise along with the thought he honed on the way, with its debt to Heraclitus, Plato, and Kant, and its tragic susceptibility to the conservatism that emerged out of the nightmare of Germany's loss in World War I.A chronicle of ideas and of personal commitments and betrayals, Safranski's biography combines clear accounts of the philosophy that won Heidegger eternal renown with the fascinating details of the loves and lapses that tripped up this powerful intellectual. Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil does not shy away from full coverage of Heidegger's shameful transformation into a propagandist for the National Socialist regime; nor does it allow this aspect of his career to obscure his accomplishments."--Publisher's description

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By captivating the intellectual life of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe put into language the anxieties and ambitions of a civilization on the cusp of modernity. Indeed, Goethe's unparalleled literary output would come to define the Romantic age. Safranski surveys Goethe's wide-ranging genius, and crafts a portrait of Goethe's inner life that illuminates both his written work and the turmoil and triumphs of his era

How much globalization can we bear? by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

38 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling new book, the philosopher Rudiger Safranski grapples with the pressing problems of the global age: 'Big Brother' states, terrorism, international security and the seeming impossibility of 'world' peace. He suggests that the era of globalization should not be thought of as that epoch in world history in which all human beings will see themselves in the same, indistinct situation. There will always be, Safranski argues, some need for understanding one's own situation by drawing boundaries and conceptualizing 'otherness' and individuality."--Jacket
Romantik : eine deutsche Affäre by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

38 editions published between 2007 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con la mezcla de sabiduría y amenidad que lo caracteriza, Rüdiger Safranski introduce a los lectores en ese excepcional movimiento que eclosionó en el paso del siglo XVIII al XIX. Para ello analiza el pensamiento y las obras de autores como Herder, Fichte, Schelling, Hoffman, Novalis o Schiller, para después explorar las múltiples manifestaciones de lo <<romántico>> y rastrear su pervivencia y continuidad hasta nuestros días. El autor ilustra los multiformes avatares de lo romántico tanto en la obra de músico (Wagner), filosóficos (Nietzsche, Heidegger) o escritores (Rilke, Mann), como en la política degenerada del mazismo o en los ideales radicalizados de Mayo del 68

Und wieder anders im gesellschaftlichen Termingetriebe, in der beschleunigten Wirtschaftswelt, in den Medien, in der globalen Gleichzeitigkeit
Romanticism : a German affair by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The renowned scholar Rüdiger Safranski's Romanticism: A German Affair both offers an accessible overview of Romanticism and, more critically, traces its lasting influence, for better and for ill, on German culture. Safranski begins with the eighteenthcentury Sturm und Drang movement, which would sow the seeds for Romanticism in Germany. While Romanticism was a broad artistic, literary, and intellectual movement, German thinkers were especially concerned with its strong philosophical-metaphysical and religious dimension. Safranski follows this spirit in its afterlife in the work of Heinrich Heine, Richard Wagner, Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Mann, and through the later artistic upheavals of the twentieth century. He concludes by carefully considering Romanticism's possible influence in the rise of National Socialism and the student revolt of 1968.--

5 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Goethe-Buch für unsere Zeit: Rüdiger Safranski nähert sich dem letzten Universalgenie aus den primären Quellen - Werke, Briefe, Tagebücher, Gespräche, Aufzeichnungen von Zeitgenossen. So wird Goethe ungewohnt lebendig: Ein junger Mann aus gutem Hause, dem Studentenleben zugetan und dauerverliebt, wird Bestsellerautor, bekommt eine gutdotierte Stellung, dilettiert in Naturforschungen, flüchtet nach Italien, lebt in wilder Ehe - und bei alledem schreibt er seine unvergesslichen Werke. Doch er wollte noch mehr: Das Leben selbst sollte zum Kunstwerk werden. Safranskis souverän geschriebenes Buch macht uns zu Zeitgenossen dieses Menschen und schildert eindringlich, wie Goethe sich zu Goethe gemacht hat
