Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits

Overview

It is often enough, and always with great surprise, intimated to me that there is something both ordinary and unusual in all my writings, from the "Birth of Tragedy" to the recently published "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future": they all contain, I have been told, snares and nets for short sighted birds, and something that is almost a constant, subtle, incitement to an overturning of habitual opinions and of approved customs.

Overview

It is often enough, and always with great surprise, intimated to me that there is something both ordinary and unusual in all my writings, from the "Birth of Tragedy" to the recently published "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future": they all contain, I have been told, snares and nets for short sighted birds, and something that is almost a constant, subtle, incitement to an overturning of habitual opinions and of approved customs. What!? Everything is merely-human-all too human? With this exclamation my writings are gone through, not without a certain dread and mistrust of ethic itself and not without a disposition to ask the exponent of evil things if those things be not simply misrepresented. My writings have been termed a school of distrust, still more of disdain: also, and more happily, of courage, audacity even. And in fact, I myself do not believe that anybody ever looked into the world with a distrust as deep as mine, seeming, as I do, not simply the timely advocate of the devil, but, to employ theological terms, an enemy and challenger of God; and whosoever has experienced any of the consequences of such deep distrust, anything of the chills and the agonies of isolation to which such an unqualified difference of standpoint condemns him endowed with it, will also understand how often I must have sought relief and self-forgetfulness from any source-through any object of veneration or enmity, of scientific seriousness or wanton lightness; also why I, when I could not find what I was in need of, had to fashion it for myself, counterfeiting it or imagining it (and what poet or writer has ever done anything else, and what other purpose can all the art in the world possibly have?)

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.

    The blueprint for life as we know it

    A great book filled with plenty of aphorims that ranges from almost every subject of life (as mere humans of course). We can better our knowledge through our own experience if we all take this book along with us.

    The Lich

    *he walks in wearing a dark green hoodie, no pants, and boxers. A sword is strapped to his back, runes spiralling down the blade and hilt. A belt of shurikens is around his waist.*

    Megan's Bio post post post!

    Name: Megan Mary Etherway, Miss Etherway, Megan the Conductor, Megan. Appearance: she has black wavy hair with white highlights that she normally pins up in a bun. She is 5'8"; she wears a white three quarter-length blouse with a ruffled collar. She wears a black women's pants suit with her blouse. Her skin is a tad bit tan, and her face is a bit narrow. Age: 25 Powers: she can play any instrument without knowing how, and can make musical notes and figures appear and direct them at anybody. She can make them have soft rounded edges and bounce lazily off someone, or she can make them have sharper than rasor-sharp edges and spew them at people with unbelievable speed and hurt them very badly. They can also be any size, some smaller than you toenail on your piggy toe, or as big as axes. She does this when she fights, which is hardly ever. She can move zero gravity, and this can give her an advantage or a disadvantage in fighting. Gender: Duh! Think that is it...Other: Ask! Post post post!
