Book Description

4 Sep 2008 Introducing...
Why must we believe that God is dead? Can we accept that traditional morality is just a 'useful mistake'? Did the principle of 'the will to power' lead to the Holocaust? What are the limitations of scientific knowledge? Is human evolution complete or only beginning? It is difficult to overestimate the importance of Friedrich Nietzsche for our present epoch. His extraordinary insights into human psychology, morality, religion and power seem quite clairvoyant today: existentialism, psychoanalysis, semiotics and postmodernism are plainly anticipated in his writings - which are famously enigmatic and often contradictory."Introducing Nietzsche" is the perfect guide to this exhilarating and oft-misunderstood philosopher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 25 Aug 2006
As a concise, clear and readable precis of Neitzsche's very wide-ranging philosophy this is superb. I defy anyone not to enjoy and be stimulated by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great intro 19 April 2008
By x iLeon
I have been a Nietzsche fanatic for several years. However, the first work I read, the much touted Zarathustra, left me indifferent, to say the least. This book provides an excellent introduction to N's life, work and influences, in a very reader friendly approach. Read it and then read the man himself (Birth of Tragedy and Beyond Good and Evil are my personal favourites from the person I consider, as do many of my fellow readers, to be the greatest philosopher AD).

Also, an excellent series in general.

Introducing Nietzsche is a book that does exactly what it says on the cover. In words and pictures the reader is led through Nietzche's childhood, early life and middle age, through to his death, showing how his philosophical ideas formed and took shape within the context of the world around him. As with most of the 'Introducing...' series this is a well put together basic starter. It is both interesting and easy to follow and makes an excellent beginning point for anyone wishing to know more about Nietzche.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graphic!! 4 Feb 2012
By Onora
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great introduction to Frederich Nietzsche. His father was a Lutheran pastor and Nietzsche studied theology and philology (the literary analysis of classical. However, he abandoned theology, indulging in his love of Greek classical texts. He was devoted to Plato and Aeschylus. Nietzsche read the World as Will and Idea by the German idealist philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860). Schopenhauer's atheism influenced Nietzsche's future writings such as 'Thus Spake Zarathustra', 'The Genealogy of Morals', 'Beyond Good and Evil' and so on. Nietzsche was friendly with Richard Wagner, but fell out with him for his anti-semitism. However, after Nietzsce's death in August 1900,Nietzsche's sister Elizabeth placed herself in control of the archive of her brother's work. She allegedly manipulated his letters and writings to give the impression that she and he had been very close when actually her anti-semitism had been at the core of his estrangement from her. Frederich Nietzsche was influential to Sigmund Freud. Michael Focault the French philosopher and historian was the most influential heir to Nietzsche's genealogical method of conceptual analysis. Highly recommended
