Overview

Human, All-Too-Human (1878) is often considered the start of Friedrich Nietzsche's mature period. This complex work, composed of hundreds of aphorisms of varying length, explores many themes to which Nietsche later returned and marks a significant departure from his previous thinking. Here Nietsche breaks with his early allegiance to Arthur Schopenhauer and Richard Wagner, and establishes the overall framework of his later philosophy. In contrast to his previous disdain for science, now Nietzsche views science as key to undercutting traditional metaphysics. This he sees as a crucial step in the emergence of free spirits who will be the avant-garde of culture.

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

From the Publisher

"The Colli-Montinari edition has revolutionized our understanding of one of the greatest German thinkers. As a result of the new view opened up by this edition, Nietzsche has clearly come into his own as one of the more important philosophers of modern times. The English-language edition should become a classic that will be used by generations of scholars."—David E. Wellbery, The Johns Hopkins University

"The Colli-Montinari critical edition of Nietzsche's works is one of the most important works of scholarship in the humanities in the last quarter century. It was not until after World War II that one began to realize the extent to which Nietzsche's notebooks had been tampered with, jumbled, badly deciphered, and poorly edited, and it was not until the Colli-Montinari edition that scholars could be confident for the first time of having a trustworthy text."—Van A. Harvey, Stanford University

    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.

    *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!
