Most widely held works by Carol Diethe
On the genealogy of morals by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

26 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most influential thinkers of the past hundred and fifty years and On the Genealogy of Morality (1887) is his most important work on ethics and politics. A polemical contribution to moral and political theory, it offers a critique of moral values and traces the historical evolution of concepts such as guilt, conscience, responsibility, law, and justice. It is a text affording valuable insight into Nietzsche's assessment of modern times and how he envisaged a possible overcoming of the epoch of nihilism. Nietzsche himself emphasized the cumulative nature of his work and the necessity for correct understanding of the later work as a development of the earlier. This volume contains new translations of the Genealogy and of the early essay 'The Greek State' and sections from other of Nietzsche's work to which he refers within it (Human, All Too Human, Daybreak, The Joyful Science, and Beyond Good and Evil)
Historical dictionary of Nietzscheanism by Carol Diethe( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few philosophers have been as popular, prolific, or controversial as Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900), who left his imprint not only on philosophy but on all the arts. From his concept of the Ubermensch to his nihilistic view of the world, Nietzsche's writings have aroused both enormous interest and vitriolic anathema in scholars for over a century. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Nietzscheanism brings together into one reference many of the ideas and concepts developed by this influential 19th-century philosopher. It provides a chronology, a glossary, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on Nietzsche's major writings, contemporaries, and successors."--Jacket
Towards emancipation : German women writers of the nineteenth century by Carol Diethe( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on feminism in Germany, Towards Emancipation examines some of the most influential women writers of the nineteenth century, from the late-Romantic writers, such as Bettina von Arnim and Johanna Schopenhauer, to writers who were active in the 1848 Revolution, such as Malwida von Meysenbug and Johanna Kinkel. The heart of the book is devoted to the leading proponents of emancipation, Hedwig Dohm, Helene Bohlau and the prolific Louise Otto-Peters, yet it also includes mainstream writers whose attitudes towards the movement range from lukewarm (the enormously popular Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach and Gabriele Reuter) to downright hostile (Lou Andreas-Salome and Franziska zu Reventlow)
Nietzsche's sister and the will to power : a biography of Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche by Carol Diethe( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elisabeth Forster-Nietzsche was two years younger than her brother, Friedrich Nietzsche, and outlived him by thirty-five years. In 1901, a year after Nietzsche's death, she published The Will to Power, a hasty compilation of writings he never intended for print. In Nietzsche's Sister and the Will to Power, Carol Diethe contends that Forster-Nietzsche's own will to power and her desire to place herself, not her brother, at the center of cultural life in Germany are responsible for Nietzsche's reputation as a belligerent and proto-Fascist thinker." "During the latter part of her life, Forster-Nietzsche propagated and presided over a Nietzsche cult in Weimar, Germany. Many intellectuals believed she had abetted her brother's legacy by bringing his publications to print. But, as Diethe claims, Forster-Nietzche's well-known Fascist and anti-Semitic ties, as well as her declaration that her brother would have supported the Germans in World War I, have marred Nietzsche's legacy and linked him to political campaigns and ideals he did not actually endorse." "Offering a new look at Nietzche's sister from a feminist perspective, this biography examines why Elisabeth Forster-Nietzsche recklessly consorted with anti-Semitics, from her own husband, Bernard Forster, to Hitler himself, out of convenience and a desire for revenge against a brother whose love for her waned after she had caused the collapse of his friendship with Lou von Salome in 1882. In distilling the reasons Forster-Nietzche betrayed and endangered the reputation of the man she loved most, Diethe examines the dynamics of their family, Nietzche's dismissal of his sister's early writing career, and the effects of limited education on intelligent women. Diethe also discusses the details of Forster-Nietzche's brief marriage and her subsequent colonial venture in Paraguay, maintaining that her sporadic anti-Semitism was, like most things in her life, an expedient tool for cultivating personal success and status."--BOOK JACKET
