    A cultural revolution. Nietzsche, who was an atheist, understood that religion was useful for providing meaning, community, and helping to deal with the problems of life. In any edited text, one needs to be cautious of the editor's biases and potential heavy-handedness (e.g. intentional omissions). In *Basic Writings of Nietzsche,* the editor, Walter Kaufmann, has selected five of Nietzsche's volumes (*The Birth of Tragedy,* *Beyond Good and Evil,* *On the Genealogy of Morals,* *The Case of Wagner,* and *Ecce Homo*) which touch on aspects of Nietzsche's overall 5/5(5).

    Friedrich Nietzsche has been widely known for his nihilistic philosophy and for controversial misquotes, such as the famous “God is dead,” that many interpret as an atheistic statement or his outright denial of the existence of God, when in fact, it was originally used referring to how we as a society have “killed” the notion of God through the materialist rationality that came after Author: Andrea Mejía.

The last time I devoted an entire course to Nietzsche, the first assignment was Ecce Homo. This was because I wanted to set up the question “Why read Nietzsche?” in the most challenging, dramatic, and provocative way possible.

On a first reading o. Nietzsche’s first book, Die Geburt der Tragödie aus dem Geiste der Musik (; The Birth of Tragedy from the Spirit of Music), marked his emancipation from the trappings of classical scholarship.

A speculative rather than exegetical work, it argued that Greek tragedy arose out of the fusion of what he termed Apollonian and Dionysian. German philosopher, classical scholar, poet and philologist Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most influential modern thinkers, best known for his writings on religion, good and evil, and the concepts of the “super-man” and “will to power.”.

Nietzsche was the youngest ever to hold the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of : Flavia Medrut. On the surface, Nietzsche's life is unremarkable. The son of a Lutheran pastor, Nietzsche's genius led Some aspects of the life and work of Nietzsche book his appointment as a professor of philology at the University of Basel in at the age.

Nietzsche, Regret and Amor Fati. One of the strangest yet most intriguing aspects of Friedrich Nietzsche’s ideas is his repeated enthusiasm for a concept that he called amor fati (translated from Latin as ‘a love of one’s fate’, or as we might put it, a resolute, enthusiastic acceptance of everything that has happened in one’s life).

The person of amor fati doesn’t seek to erase. Nietzsche - The Book of Life is the 'brain' of The School of Life, a gathering of the best ideas around wisdom and emotional intelligence. The challenge begins with how to pronounce his name. The first bit should sound like ‘Knee’, the second like ‘cher’: Knee – cher.

The influences of Nietzsche’s own life on the philosophy are very dramatic. Some of them have to do with the intellectual biography, of course – what he studied, what he read et cetera. But I think probably the crucial fact about Nietzsche’s life is that when he writes about suffering he’s not a tourist.

Influential German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche () is known for his writings on good and evil, the end of religion in modern society and the concept of a "super-man."Born: The most famous misreading of Nietzsche was a deliberate one, orchestrated by his anti-Semitic sister Elisabeth, friend and admirer of Hitler, who corrupted her brother's late work and adapted it to Nazi yet, despite Nietzsche's seeming disdain for what he vaguely termed, among other things, an “under race” of common people, he also loathed anti-Semitism and nationalism and.

Laudably, he writes with an open mind, anticipating that future research might throw different light on many aspects of Nietzsche's life. Any good biography must always remain in statu nascendi. There are minor errors e.g. in the names of Julian Robert Mayer or Friedrich Ritschl but these are well compensated by what the book delivers/5(6).

Intwo Italian scholars of German—Giorgio Colli and his former student Mazzino Montinari—came to the conclusion that inconsistencies in the various German editions of Nietzsche’s writings necessitated a definitive Critical Edition of the Collected Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, based on an examination of Nietzsche’s actual notebooks at the Goethe-Schiller Archiv in Weimar.

The first comprehensive study of Nietzsche's earliest book, The Birth of Tragedy (), this important volume by M. Silk and J. Stern examines the work in detail: its place in Nietzsche's philosophical career; its value as an account of ancient Greek culture; its place in the history of German ideas, and its value as a theory of tragedy and by: It was the first work on Nietzsche I read (since I was reading Kaufmann's translations and he refers to it often) and give a great summary and expansion of his ideas, historical context, influence, dispelling the whole Nazi ordeal, etc.

Hollingdale's does the same and is a bit shorter, and even speaks of Kaufmann's book's influence. I’ve gone on record before saying that the worst place to begin is Thus Spake Zarathustra, and while I’ve softened that opinion a bit, I still think that there are less “fundamental” and well-known works of his that are better starting places.

Als. Though written at the beginning of the 20th century, H.L. Mencken's synthesis of the often-misunderstood philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche still remains fresh today, which is an impressive accomplishment on Mencken's part since a book like this is more or less a guidebook, and guidebooks aren't known for holding up well over time/5.
