Nietzsche remains one of the most influential philosophers of our time

Nietzsche remains one of the most influential philosophers of our time. As Walter Kaufmann notes, 'No other philosopher since Plato and Aristotle, with the exception of Kant and Hegel, has influenced so many widely different thinkers and writers so profoundly. Discuss Nietzsche's various attitudes toward his contemporaries as stated in Basic Writings, and conversely the ideas, figures, and ways of thinking that Nietzsche seems to find most sympathetic to his own philosophy.

Friedrich Nietzsche was born in Roecken, near Leipzig, in 1844 and died in Weimar in 1900. He is considered one of the most important German philosophers and philologists. Nietzsche is one of the first existentialists and his works have been richly and variously influential. We take a look at five of them below. This sentence sums up the basic idea and the sarcastic tone of The Antichrist, so if you’re pissed off by reading just that, don’t go for the rest. Even though Nietzsche had a religious upbringing, this book is a criticism of the new ideas of Christianity that, according to the philosopher, destroyed the ancient world, the only real civilization.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
  • I have several different translations of several of Nietzsche's books, and Kaufmann's is still the best overall. I've quoted below from the product descriptions of this book and The Portable Nietzsche. Together, the two offer many of Nietzsche's works in two compact volumes.

    "This book contains the complete texts of The Birth of Tragedy, Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, The Case of Wagner, and Ecce Homo. Edited and translated by the great Nietzsche scholar Walter Kaufmann, this volume also features seventy-five aphorisms, selections from Nietzsche’s correspondence, and variants from drafts for Ecce Homo."

    There is another compendium of Kaufmann's translations called "The Portable Nietzsche," which "contains the complete texts of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Twighlight of the Idols, The Antichrist, and Nietzsche contra Wagner. It has additional selections from Human, All to Human; The Dawn; Beyond Good and Evil; Toward a Genealogy of Morals; Ecce Homo; and other works Letters and Notes."

  • I would recommend the Basic writings of Nietzsche to both those familiar with his writing and those just starting to become aware of them. I found it to be pleasant format though one would hope for a larger font size but that would have only added to the length of the book.

  • Nietzsche isn't really as gloomy as you might expect someone with his nihilistic reputation to be. He's actually (from what I've read in this work) quite exuberant, all about tearing down the norm and rebuilding it in a new and wondrous form; creativity for its own sake. That being said, in order to get across his ideas, he launches attacks on pretty much every system of beliefs you can imagine, including language itself. Excellent reading if you want to think about thinking, but it will probably make you uncomfortable at one point or another.

  • This is a book to stay on my book shelf for years. I like The books that were contained in here. I like genealogy of Morals , Beyond good and evil and The birth of the tragedy the best. They say that Nietzsche is one of the few philosophers people read for pleasure and i find that true. A good read enough said!

  • Great collection of the important works which help introduce the reader to Nietzsche. I recommend pairing this with the Viking portable collection. Kaufmann's a great translation with useful/snarky footnotes. It's a beautiful edition and dust jacket as well, if that contributes to your buying decision. The page layout is handy for notetaking if you write in your books or (if like me) you appreciate easy to read layout of print.

    A great and affordable buy!

  • Nietzsche was the greatest polemist ever. He played the role of Saint-Michael, the dragon slayer, in his Homeric battle with the existing dragons (the Christian moralists). He tried to revalue all generally accepted `good and evil' values and really felt that mankind was pregnant with a new super-species, the `Übermensch'.
    His influence on philosophy, literature, psychology and politics is immense.
    Of course, some aspects of his vision on mankind are unacceptable.

    The all important influence on his Nietzsche's life and philosophy came from Schopenhauer: `I very earnestly denied my `will to life' at the time when I first read Schopenhauer.'

    The life of a Nietzschean immoralist
    Life is to express one's will to and lust for power. The cardinal instinct of man is not self-preservation, but the discharge of strength. Everything evil, terrible, tyrannical in man, everything that is kin to beasts of prey and serpents serves the enhancement of the species `man'. This enhancement has always been the work of an aristocratic society. The noble man creates his own morality, his good and bad, with egoism and exploitation as his real nature. He despises the slaves, the unfree, the doglike people who allow themselves to be maltreated.

    Christian morals, democracy
    When the aristocratic value judgments declined, the plebeians imposed their own morality of unegoism, pity, self-sacrifice, self-abnegation and ascetic ideals on mankind. The egoistic `good' of the masters became the `evil' of the Christian faith.
    This faith constitutes not less than a sacrifice of all freedom, enslavement and self-mutilation. By preserving all that is sick, it breads `a mediocre herd animal'.
    Democracy, `the nonsense of the greatest numbers', with its `equality of rights', is the heir of Christianity.
    It is a gruesome fact that an anti-life morality received the highest honors and was fixed as a law and a categorical imperative.

    Art
    Art is a saving sorceress. She alone knows how to turn the nauseous thoughts about the horrors of life into the sublime and life's absurdity into the comic.
    Musically speaking, Nietzsche himself was a composer.
    `The Case against Wagner' compares the Dionysian opera `Carmen' by Bizet, with the Christian opera `Parsifal' by Wagner, the redeemer.

    Evaluation
    Besides his unacceptable profound misogyny (`woman's great art is the lie, her highest concern is mere appearance'), Friedrich Nietzsche's brutal evangel is not less than a call for war, not peace. But in an age of nuclear, bio- and chemo-weapons, of veiled State terrorism and of demographic explosions, his call for an uninhibited exploitation of man's basic instincts to fight for the spoils should be categorically rejected.
    His romantic anti-rational and anti-scientific stances became pipedreams.
    On the other hand, his attacks on the power of the moralists, his sincere call to live in `Dionysian' freedom and not for `eternal bliss', as well as his vision that art is the only truly metaphysical activity of man, will continue to appeal strongly to many and remain the bright parts of his virulent diatribes.

    His work is a must read for all philosophers and lovers of truly essential polemics.

  • A real intellectual work-out. If you are looking for some light reading - say something for a beach vacation or something to fill time on public transportation or waiting rooms, look elsewhere . . . this is not for you. This is a collection of dense works that present some ideas that are not easy to translate into modern terms, such as the author's ideas on "the will to power," the ideal of "the superman." the discarding of archaic morality by going "Beyond Good and Evil," and "the will to power." The most infamous twister of these ideas, Adolf Hitler, and the most famous work to be inspired by such ideas - "Triumph of the Will" by Leni Riefenstahl (?), are easily identified as offspring of these works. But, if you're up for some mental muscle-building, boost up on your protein and carbs and dive on in.
