The inequality of human races by Arthur Gobineau( Book )

9 editions published between 1915 and 1983 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The design of this work is, to contribute toward the knowledge of the leading mental and moral characteristics of the various races of men which have subsisted from the dawn of history to the present era, and to ascertain, impossible, the degree to which they are susceptible of improvement. The annals of the world demonstrate beyond a doubt, that the different branches of the human family, like the individual members of a community, are endowed with capacities, different not only in degree but in kind, and that, in proportion to these endowments, they have contributed, and still contribute to that great march of progress of the human race, which we term civilization. To portray the nature of these endowments, to estimate the influence of each race in the destinies of all, and to point out the effects of mixture of races in the rise and fall of great empires, has been the task to the accomplishment of which, though too extensive for one man, the author has devoted his abilities"--Preface.

The use and abuse of history by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

8 editions published between 1949 and 1995 in English and German and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inactuelle, cette considération l'est encore parce que je cherche à comprendre comme un mal, un dommage, une carence, quelque chose dont l'époque se glorifie à juste titre, à savoir sa culture historique ; (...) nous sommes tous rongés de fièvre historienne, et nous devrions tout au moins nous en rendre compte. (...) Certes, nous avons besoin de l'histoire, mais pour vivre et pour agir, non pas pour nous détourner commodément de la vie et de l'action, encore moins pour embellir une vie égoïste et des actions lâches ... Lire la suite et mauvaises. Nous ne voulons servir l'histoire que dans la mesure où elle sert la vie. (...) Toute action exige l'oubli, de même que toute vie organique exige non seulement de la lumière, mais aussi l'obscurité. Un homme qui voudrait sentir les choses de façon absolument et exclusivement historique ressemblerait à quelqu'un qu'on aurait contraint à se priver de sommeil ou à un animal qui ne devrait vivre que de ruminer continuellement les mêmes aliments. Il est donc possible de vivre, et même de vivre heureux, presque sans aucune mémoire, comme le montre l'animal ; mais il est absolument impossible de vivre sans oubli (...) : il y a un degré d'insomnie, de rumination, de sens historique, au-delà duquel l'être vivant se trouve ébranlé et finalement détruit, qu'il s'agisse d'un individu, d'un peuple ou d'une civilisation."--Description from http://www.decitre.fr/livres/CONSIDERATIONS-INACTUELLES.aspx/9782070326891 ((viewed Dec. 17, 2010)
Human, all too human : a book for free spirits by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

12 editions published in 1924 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the first of two to provide a new edition of Human, All Too Human, the earliest of Nietzsche's works in which his philosophical concerns and methodologies can be glimpsed. Published in 1878, it marked both a stylistic and an intellectual shift away from Nietzsche's own youthful affiliation with Romantic excesses of German thought and culture. It presents the precursors of the ideas that would later become Nietzsche's theories on genealogy and of the U;bermensch. This new translation presents Nietzsche's text in the straightforward, direct prose of the original. It is the first English edition to include the significant variants and revisions of the original published text, and the first to provide cross-references to the forthcoming volume of Nietzsche's notebook material from the same period. It includes explanatory notes and a translator's afterword detailing the history of the work. -- Publisher description
