The Gay Science by Friedrich Nietzsche, Walter Kaufmann

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Gay Science Nietzsche called The Gay Science the most personal of all my books It was here that he first proclaimed the death of God to which a large part of the book is devoted and his doctrine of the eternal recurrence .

Walter Kaufmann s commentary with its many quotations from previously untranslated letters brings to life Nietzsche as a human being and illuminates his philosophy The book contains some of Nietzsche s most sustained discussions of art and morality knowledge and truth the intellectual conscience and the origin of logic .

Most of the book was written just before Thus Spoke Zarathustra the last part five years later after Beyond Good and Evil We encounter Zarathustra in these pages as well as many of Nietzsche s most interesting philosophical ideas and the largest collection of his own poetry that he himself ever published .

Walter Kaufmann s English versions of Nietzsche represent one of the major translation enterprises of our time He is the first philosopher to have translated Nietzsche s major works and never before has a single translator given us so much of Nietzsche

the most famous books of the past hundred years but few have studied it Here at last is the first critical edition in any language br br Down through the Nazi period i The Will to Power i was often mistakenly considered to be Nietzsche s crowning systematic labor since World War II it has frequently been denigrated just as fallaciously as being not worth reading In fact it represents a stunning selection from Nietzsche s notebooks in a topical arrangement that enables the reader to find what Nietzsche wrote on nihilism art morality religion the theory of knowledge and whatever else interested him But no previous edition even in the original German shows which notes Nietzsche utilized subsequently in his works and which sections are not paralleled in the finished books Nor has any previous edition furnished a commentary or index br br Walter Kauffman in collaboration with R J Hollingdale brings to this volume his unsurpassed skills as a Nietzsche translator and scholar Professor Kauffman has included the approximate date of each note His running footnote commentary offers the information needed to follow Nietzsche s train of thought and indicates among other things which notes were eventually superseded by later formulations and where all German editions including the very latest depart from the manuscripts The comprehensive index serves to guide the reader to the extraordinary riches of this book, In the last sane year of his life Nietsche produced these two brief but devastating books br p i Twilight of the Idols i a grand declaration of war on all the prevalent ideas of his time offers a lightning tour of his whole philosophy It also prepares the way for i The Anti Christ i a final assault on institutional Christianity Yet although Nietzsche makes a compelling case for the Dionysian artist and celebrates magnificently two of his great heroes Goethe and Cesare Borgia he also gives a moving almost ecstatic portrait of his only worthy opponent Christ Both works show Nietsche lashing out at self deception astounded at how often morality is based on vengefulness and resentment Both combine utterly unfair attacks on individuals with amazingly acute surveys of the whole contemporary cultural scene Both reveal a profound understanding of human mean spiritedness which still cannot destroy the underlying optimism of Nietzsche the supreme

is translated from the German by R J Hollingdale with an introduction by Michael Tanner in Penguin Classics br br i Beyond Good and Evil i confirmed Nietzsche s position as the towering European philosopher of his age The work dramatically rejects the tradition of Western thought with its notions of truth and God good and evil Nietzsche demonstrates that the Christian world is steeped in a false piety and infected with a slave morality With wit and energy he turns from this critique to a philosophy that celebrates the present and demands that the individual imposes their own will to power upon the world br br This edition includes a commentary on the text by the translator and Michael Tanner s introduction which explains some of the more abstract passages in i Beyond Good and
