The Twilight Of The Idols
The Twilight of the Idols by Friedrich Nietzsche is an examination and destruction of the antiquated ideals and values of the time.
In this work, the author is on a warpath against reason. The attacks on contemporary philosophers are frequently hostile, and the suggested opinions, often devastating However, it shows a deep understanding of morality and man's mean-spiritedness, while keeping alive an underlying feeling of optimism and affirmation.
Beyond Good And Evil
Beyond Good and Evil is Friedrich Nietzsche's seminal work that delves further into the concept previously discussed in Thus Spoke Zarathustra. First published in 1886, this book tackles the debate between an individual's feeling to stand out among others and our desire to serve others.
This book explores a wide gamut of themes what is considered evil today was perhaps believed to be good before, an analysis of Christian morality, deep insights into human psychology, the concept of nationalism.
This masterpiece of aphorisms continues to inspire thinkers even now.
Human, All Too Human
A series of maxims on everything from passion, science, vanity, women, and youth, to art, arrogance, and boredom, Human, All Too Human was referred to by Nietzsche himself as "the monument of a crisis" because it was produced during a period of profound change in his life.
With his new "positivism" and scepticism, Nietzsche challenged his earlier metaphysical and psychological presumptions. Here, almost all of the issues from his later work are presented in highly witty language with a distinctive perceptiveness and honesty, not to mention mistrust and cynicism. It is still one of the foundational books for comprehending Nietzsche's philosophy.
Ecce Homo: How One Becomes What One Is was written in German by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in 1888. It was not published until 1908.
Nietzsche traces his life and offers his own interpretation of his development as a philosopher He emphatically points out how unique his ideas are. He shows himself as separate from the masses who give in to self-indulgent feelings of pity. He announces boldly about how he does not feel remorse. He fully submits himself to his fatalistic beliefs and accepts life as it comes.
The book contains several chapters with ironic self-laudatory titles, such as "Why I Am So Wise", "Why 1 Am So Clever", and " Why 1 Am a Destiny".
Half-mocking and half-earnest, Ecce Homo is the definitive expression of Nietzsche's core beliefs.
Thus Spake Zarathustra
Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra, published in four volumes between 1883 and 1885, is a work of philosophical fiction which seeks to address the problem of existence in a world where "God is dead". The author's search for meaning culminates in Zarathustra, the ancient Persian prophet, who conceptualises the figure of the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, who shall succeed God. Nietzsche's philosophising leads him to conclude that the solution to the existential crisis lies in the idea of eternal recurrence.
This nineteenth century literary masterpiece is Nietzsche's attempt to impress upon his readers the notion that meaning is derived not from religious piety but from a powerful life force. The present English translation retains the musicality of the German original and is a must read for everyone who wishes to engage with the deeper questions of existence and its meaning.
On The Genealogy Of Morals
In On The Genealogy of Morals, Nietzsche rewrites the history of ethics as a history of cruelty by exposing the core principles of the Judaeo-Christian and liberal traditions, namely, compassion, equality and justice as the by-product of a harsh conditioning process created to domesticate the animal life of earlier cultures. The result is a book that raises really unsettling questions about the violence of both ethics and interpretation.
Nietzsche demonstrates that neither religion nor science can claim to have the absolute truth by turning his own arguments against them and questioning their premises. The Genealogy emphasises the importance of Nietzsche's work for a modern readership and situates his thoughts within the cultural environment of his own day.
