Overview

First released in 1901, about one year after Nietzsche's death, "The Will to Power" is a collection of Nietzsche's unedited and unpublished writings. Though the title and all of the ideas are of the radical philosopher's own invention, the order and selection of Nietzsche's notebooks are due to the organization of his sister. As a result of his poor health, Nietzsche used his remaining energy to write a different work, leaving "The Will to Power" in the earliest stages of writing. The topics he explores vary widely and include nihilism, religion, morality, the theory of knowledge, and art. Some ideas are reflected in the works Nietzsche managed to complete in his lifetime, while others show his progression toward those ideas in his earlier life. Overall, "The Will to Power" is an opportunity to read the intellectual journaling of one of the nineteenth century's most brilliant thinkers.

This book is a comprehensive collection of Freidrich's thought, presented as unfinished thoughts and ideas. Nietzsche made a name for himself through creating rock-hard, crystal clear aphorisms. This work, however, represents an assemblage of so many "lumps of coal". For those wanting to witness the genesis process of true genius, this work is invaluable. Also, it is more understandable for the layman than his somewhat obscure poetry (Zarathustra).

nietzsche's 'will to power' is an excellent book, because not only does it offer tons of exclusive material, but its an excellent primer to familiarize yourself with nietzsche and his philosophy. it was the first book i got from him, excellent excellent read. i reccomend it to anyone interested in philosophy or someone who wants to try and understand philosophy. 'the will to power' is in my opinion, the least vague book nietzsche has written, in each essay, he is usually directly on topic, and will get to the point very quickly. which in some of his other works, his central ideas are masked by pages of sometimes irrelevant material. nonetheless, nietzsche was genius.

This book contains a huge amount fo unpublished material form Nietzsche's notebooks. Not only do the passages outline Nietzsche's basic philosophy, but it also contains passages that build upon it -- many passages that Nietzsche never got to publish.
