Overview

This English translation 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. Human All Too Human also marks the first book in which Nietzsche utilizes the aphoristic style that would come to dominate his writings, discussing a variety of concepts in short paragraphs or sayings. The result is 638 stunning aphorisms about everything under and above the sun and a must have for all students of his philosophical career.
