Overview

Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits (Revised Edition)


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.

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.
