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.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Choice

"An excellent [translation]—accurate, lively, and in places even elegant. Here his style as an epigrammist comes to full bloom. This book is not just for Nietzsche students and buffs; perceptive and intelligent readers of all sorts can relate to his unencumbered and oft acerbic analysis."—Choice

New York Times Book Review

"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

    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!
