Product Description

Product Description

Philosophy for busy people. Read a succinct account of the philosophy of Neitzsche in just one hour.

Philosophy has always been dangerous for philosophers; Friedrich Nietzsche made it dangerous for everyone. His ideas presaged a collective madness which was to ravage Europe throughout the first half of the twentieth century, drawing a chilling parallel with the insanity that gripped Nietzsche towards the end of his life. His philosophy is one of aphorisms and penetrating psychological insights, his major concept being the Will to Power – a notion that he saw as the basic impulse for all our acts. Viewing Christianity as a subtle perversion of this concept Nietzsche is famous for his pronouncement that ‘God is dead’.

Here is a concise, expert account of Nietzsche’s life and philosophical ideas – entertainingly written and easy to understand. Also included are selections from Nietzsche’s work, suggested further reading, and chronologies that place Nietzsche in the context of the broader scheme of philosophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very succinct 17 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is rather handy if you are studying Nietzsche, perhaps in some philosophy exam and you wish to become acquainted with the salient points of his work. For the price it is a worthwhile edition to the layman who simply wants to know what all the fuss and controversy was about surrounding this troubled thinker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tonic 24 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Exhilarating, pithy, and authentic, this incisive text does justice to the power of Nietzsche's thinking. In a world of bovine conformity and the erosion of many human virtues - independent thought, stoicism, courage, autonomy, joyful idiosyncrasy - Nietzsche is one of the few potent antidotes. Buy this book as a good introduction. Then read Nietzsche.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh... 14 Mar 2014

A commentated summary of Nietzsche's philosophies. But the commentator really doesnt do them justice. You dont get a feeling of what Nietzsche was trying to convey. This is okay if you want a quick overview. But if you are actually interested in what he was trying philosophize about, read "Beyond Good and Evil" and "Thus Spoke Zarathustra".

An excellent primer on what some consider an impenetrable philosopher
Very clearly leads you through the different strands and periods of Nietzsche's periods
Essential reading if you are new to this important figure - makes it all clear so you can explore from a position of clarity

4.0 out of 5 stars A short way to the complexity of Nietzsche 8 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Nietzsche's ideas are complex, subtle and often contradictory. This very terse introduction will help ease you in to them.

It will whet the appetite to further reading.
