Nietzsche quiere expresar aquí la gran desconfianza que siente hacia los grandes impostores y moralistas religiosos. El Anticristo, cuyo subtítulo es Maldición sobre el cristianismo, apareció por primera vez en 1895, cinco años antes de la muerte de Nietzsche. El cristianismo es para el autor la religión de la compasión, y como tal, representa todos los malos instintos de la decadencia, puesto que la compasión está en contraste con las emociones tónicas que elevan la energía del sentimiento vital y es equivalente a la negación de la vida.
Introduction by Peter GayTranslated and edited by Walter Kaufmann Commentary by Martin Heidegger, Albert Camus, and Gilles Deleuze One hundred years after his death, Friedrich Nietzsche remains the most influential philosopher of the modern era. Basic Writings of Nietzsche gathers the complete texts of five of Nietzsche's most important works, from his first book to his last: The Birth of Tragedy, Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, The Case of Wagner, and Ecce Homo. Edited and translated by the great Nietzsche scholar Walter Kaufmann, this volume also features seventy-five aphorisms, selections from Nietzsche's correspondence, and variants from drafts for Ecce Homo. It is a definitive guide to the full range of Nietzsche's thought. Includes a Modern Library Reading Group GuideFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
Philosophy Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most remarkable and influential books of the nineteenth century. Like Thus Spoke Zarathustra, which had immediately preceded it, Beyond Good and Evil represents Nietzsche's attempt to sum up his philosophy--but in less flamboyant and more systematic form. The nine parts of the book are designed to give the reader a comprehensive idea of Nietzsche's thought and style: they span "The Prejudices of Philosophers," "The Free Spirit," religion, morals, scholarship, "Our Virtues," "Peoples and Fatherlands," and "What is Noble," as well as chapter of epigrams and a concluding poem. This translation by Walter Kaufmann--the first ever to be made in English by a philosopher--has become the standard one, for accuracy and fidelity to the eccentricities and grace of style of the original. Unlike other editions, in English or German, this volume offers an inclusive index of subjects and persons referred to in the book. Professor Kaufmann, the distinguished Nietzsche scholar, has also provided a running footnote commentary on the text.From the Trade Paperback edition.
The Birth of Tragedy (1872) was Nietzsche's first book. Its youthful faults were exposed by Nietzsche in the brilliant "Attempt at a Self-Criticism" which he added to the new edition of 1886. But the book, whatever its excesses, remains one of the most relevant statements on tragedy ever penned. It exploded the conception of Greek culture that was prevalent down through the Victorian era, and it sounded themes developed in the twentieth century by classicists, existentialists, psychoanalysts, and others. The Case of Wagner (1888) was one Nietzsche's last books, and his wittiest. In attitude and style it is diametrically opposed to The Birth of Tragedy. Both works transcend their ostensible subjects and deal with art and culture, as well as the problems of the modern age generally. Each book in itself gives us an inadequate idea of its author; together, they furnish a striking image of Nietzsche's thought. The distinguished new translations by Walter Kaufmann superbly reflect in English Nietzsche's idiom and the vitality of his style. Professor Kaufmann has also furnished running footnote commentaries, relevant passages from Nietzsche's correspondence, a bibliography, and, for the first time in any edition, an extensive index to each book.
Ecce homo. Cómo se llega a ser lo que se es, resulta, sin duda alguna, el título más pertinente para la autobiografía del genial filósofo y pensador alemán Friedrich Nietzsche. Ecce homo, o "Aquí tienen al hombre", son las palabras con que Pilatos entrega a Jesucristo a la crucifixión, sin encontrar culpa en él, pero también sin poder torcer su destino, Ecce homo, así se autodefine el propio Nietzsche. "Cómo se llega a ser lo que se es" es simplemente el legado de alguien que supo asumir su propio destino, que supo estar a la altura de él y encarnarlo. Ecce homo se publicó en 1908, veinte años después de su redacción en 1888, y ocho después de la muerte del autor. En 1888 Nietzsche siente que no le queda mucho tiempo y, el 15 de octubre de ese año, el día que cumplía 44 años, decide "contarse su vida a sí mismo"; desde ese día, hasta mediados de noviembre, trabajará intensamente en esta peculiarísima autobiografía.
"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. . " This is the book in which Nietzsche put forth his boldest declaration. It is also his most personal, featuring some of the author's most important discussions of art, morality, knowledge, and, ultimately, truth.
Nietzsche called The Gay Science "the most personal of all my books." It was here that he first proclaimed the death of God -- to which a large part of the book is devoted -- and his doctrine of the eternal recurrence.Walter Kaufmann's commentary, with its many quotations from previously untranslated letters, brings to life Nietzsche as a human being and illuminates his philosophy. The book contains some of Nietzsche's most sustained discussions of art and morality, knowledge and truth, the intellectual conscience and the origin of logic.Most of the book was written just before Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the last part five years later, after Beyond Good and Evil. We encounter Zarathustra in these pages as well as many of Nietzsche's most interesting philosophical ideas and the largest collection of his own poetry that he himself ever published.Walter Kaufmann's English versions of Nietzsche represent one of the major translation enterprises of our time. He is the first philosopher to have translated Nietzsche's major works, and never before has a single translator given us so much of Nietzsche.From the Paperback edition.

La búsqueda y profundización de una ética más plena y acorde con la condición humana es angustiada y permanente en la obra de Nietzsche. La superación del platonismo y la lucha contra las concepciones éticas del cristianismo, al que el filósofo llamó "un platonismo para el uso del pueblo", implicó la tentativa de transmutar la tabla de valores de la cultura occidental. Todas estas cuestiones palpitan en las páginas del presente libro, en que la voluntad de lo verdadero, en palabras de Nietzsche, nos "arrastrará a muchas aventuras peligrosas".
El nacimiento de la tragedia es la erupción armónica de una larga e intensa formación intelectual y espiritual de un joven Nietzsche dominado por la belleza y la honestidad. En este libro, donde confluyen la pasión por la música, la búsqueda de la verdad y la admiración por el mundo clásico, corren, estrepitosas y fulgurantes, como ríos de lava, imágenes y concepciones hasta entonces nunca vistas ni oídas; un pensamiento que, descubriendo lo horrible y lo cruel de la naturaleza -su aspecto dionisíaco-, junto con su necesidad de redención en la apariencia, cautivó a miles de espíritus atentos al drama de la existencia desde su publicación hasta nuestro momento presente.
Discover the compelling private world of the most infamous philosopher of the nineteenth century in Nietzsche's Unpublished Letters. With correspondence to Nietzsche's inner circle--including several titillating letters to his sister--Nietzsche's Unpublished Letters gives readers a never-before-seen look into the philosopher's daily life. Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher and a founder of the Existentialist school of thought. He is famous for his controversial philosophies challenging Christianity, religion, and morality. Nietzsche was born in a small Prussian village in 1844 to a large Lutheran family, and his early childhood was largely marked by the deaths of his father and brother. Nietzsche attended the University of Bonn to study philology, where he discovered the philosophies of Arthur Schopenhauer and Immanuel Kant. He also formed a close friendship with Wilhelm Wagner, and with the help of Wagner, Nietzsche secured a position teaching philology at the University of Basel when he was only 24. This friendship abruptly ended in 1878 with Nietzsche's book Human, All-too-Human. Shortly after, his health began deteriorating, and he struck up a nomadic, stateless existence during which he wrote his most enduring works, including The Gay Science and Thus Spoke Zarathustra. In 1889, Nietzsche suffered a mental breakdown, and his sister Elisabeth cared for him until his death in 1900.
On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life is an excellent point of entry into the philosophy of Nietzsche. Not only does it sound many of the main points of the whole, but is a clear statement of the profoundest concerns which animate the whole. If it is understood for what it is it can, better than any other work, provide the foundation for an appropriating study of this powerful thinker.
A revised and updated edition of Nietzsche's classic text reflecting the considerable advances in understanding over twelve years.
The great philosopher's major work on ethics, along with ECCE HOMO, Nietzche's remarkable review of his life and works. Translated by Walter Kaufmann.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Newly translated and edited by Taylor Carman, On Truth and Untruth charts Nietzsche's evolving thinking on truth, which has exerted a powerful influence over modern and contemporary thought. This original collection features the complete text of the celebrated early essay "On Truth and Lie in a Nonmoral Sense" ("a keystone in Nietzsche's thought" -Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy), as well as selections from the great philosopher's entire career, including key passages from The Gay Science, Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, The Will to Power, Twilight of the Idols, and The Antichrist.
Thus Spoke Zarathustra chronicles the wanderings and teachings of the prophet Zarathustra, who descends from his mountain retreat to awaken the world to its new salvation.
"Twilight of the Idols", an attack on all the prevalent ideas of his time, offers a lightning tour of Nietzsche's whole philosophy. It also prepares the way for "The Anti-Christ", a final assault on institutional Christianity. Both works show Nietzsche lashing out at self-deception, astounded at how often morality is based on vengefulness and resentment. Both reveal a profound understanding of human mean-spiritedness which still cannot destroy the underlying optimism of Nietzsche, the supreme affirmer among the great philosophers.
The four short works in Untimely Meditations were published by Nietzsche between 1873 and 1876. They deal with such broad topics as the relationship between popular and genuine culture, strategies for cultural reform, the task of philosophy, the nature of education, and the relationship between art, science and life. They also include Nietzsche's earliest statement of his own understanding of human selfhood as a process of endlessly â becoming who one is'. As Daniel Breazeale shows in his introduction to this new edition of R. J. Hollingdale's translation of the essays, these four early texts are key documents for understanding the development of Nietzsche's thought and clearly anticipate many of the themes of his later writings. Nietzsche himself always cherished his Untimely Meditations and believed that they provide valuable evidence of his â becoming and self-overcoming' and constitute a â public pledge' concerning his own distinctive task as a philosopher.
