Overview

Twilight of the Idols, which deals with what we worship and why, presents a vivid overview of many of Nietzsche's mature ideas - including his attack on Plato's Socrates and on the Platonic legacy in Western philosophy and culture - and anticipates his projected revaluation of all values. Accompanied by a fascinating Introduction by Tracy Strong, Richard Polt's new translation faithfully and beautifully renders this highly formal, even musical, late work of Nietzsche's, which Nietzsche characterized as "a very sharp, precise and quick digest of my essential philosophical heterodoxies," and which offers such an excellent introduction to his thought. Includes select bibliography, notes, and index.
