First published in 1878, the book marks the philosophical coming of age of Friedrich Nietzsche.

Overview


This English translation—the first since 1909—restores Human, All Too Human to its proper central position in the Nietzsche canon. First published in 1878, the book marks the philosophical coming of age of Friedrich Nietzsche. In it he rejects the romanticism of his early work, influenced by Wagner and Schopenhauer, and looks to enlightened reason and science. The "Free Spirit" enters, untrammeled by all accepted conventions, a precursor of Zarathustra. The result is 638 stunning aphorisms about everything under and above the sun.

This is the first new translation of both volumes of Nietzsche's Human, All Too Human to appear since the beginning of the century. Subtitled A Book for Free Spirits, Human, All Too Human marked for Neitzsche a new "positivism" and scepticism with which he challenged his previous metaphysical and psychological assumptions.

"Offers dazzling observations of human psychology, social interaction, esthetics, and religion. The book is one of the best examples of Nietzsche’s ability to unmask the essence of social reality and expose the origins of our illustrations."—New York Times Book Review
