  • Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

    Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844–1900) was a nineteenth-century German philosopher. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, using a distinctive German language style and displaying a fondness for aphorism. Nietzsche's influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. Thus Spake Zarathustra (Also sprach Zarathustra), is a work composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885. Much of the work deals with ideas such as the "eternal recurrence of the same", the parable on the "death of God", and the "prophecy" of the Overman, which were first introduced in The Gay Science.

    This is one of the most important works written by Nietzsche and represents his attempt to sum up his philosophy. The great nineteenth-century philosopher refines his previously expressed ideal of the superman in this work, a fascinating examination of human values and morality.

In nine parts, this book is designed to give listeners a comprehensive idea of Nietzsche's thought and style. In Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in...read more

    La gaya ciencia, también traducido como El gay saber o El alegre saber, es una de las obras capitales del filósofo Friedrich Nietzsche, escrita en 1882. Con ella se cierra el periodo 'negativo' (de destrucción de la metafísica cristiana) y se abre el periodo afirmativo (de construcción de nuevos valores), en el que se destaca la obra Así habló Zaratustra. Para Friedrich Nietzsche el cristianismo inventó un mundo ideal, inexistente, alejado de todo contacto con el mundo real. En esta obra, reivindicó el ateísmo como única forma de alcanzar la fuerza, la libertad y la independencia perdida por culpa del cristianismo y anunció la muerte de Dios. El título utiliza una locución muy...read more

    Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Saul Reichlin, known for their roles in War and Peace and Miss Marple. This definitive recording includes an introduction by R.J. Hollingdale, also read by Saul Reichlin. Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. With blazing intensity, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious...read more

    Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, first published in 1886, presents a scathing critique of traditional morality and attacks previous philosophers for their blind acceptance of Christian ideals of virtue. As an alternative to what he viewed as the illogical and irrelevant philosophy of the nineteenth century, Nietzsche argues for the importance of imagination, self-assertion, danger, and originality for genuine philosophy. He furthermore denies the existence of a universal system of morality and instead offers a framework in which social roles and power dynamics dictate what is appropriate. A culmination of Nietzsche's mature philosophy, Beyond Good and Evil is a classic of moral...read more

    Thus Spoke Zarathustra was conceived and written by Friedrich Nietzsche during the years 1881-1885; the first three parts were published in 1883 and 1884. The book formed part of his 'campaign against morality', in which Nietzsche explored the ethical consequences of the 'death of God'. Heavily critical not only of Christian values but also of their modern replacements, Thus Spoke Zarathustra argues for a new value-system based around the prophecy of the Ãœbermensch or Superman. Its appropriation by the National Socialist movement in Germany early in the twentieth century has tainted its reputation unjustly; but there are signs that the rehabilitation of Nietzsche, and of this his...read more

    The Will to Power is a prominent concept in the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. The will to power describes what Nietzsche may have believed to be the main driving force in humans- achievement, ambition, and the striving to reach the highest possible position in life. For Nietzsche, the Will to Power was the fundamental principle of all life, a view that could be found in many of his earlier texts, including Thus Spoke Zarathustra: ‘Where there is life, there is also will: not, however, Will to  Life, but - so teach I thee - Will to Power!’ This audio is divided into two volumes and four books and further divided into 1,067 sections.

    “The Antichrist” was written by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The reference to the antichrist is not meant to refer to the biblical antichrist, but rather to an attack on the “slave’s moral” and the apathy of Western Christianity. Nietzsche’s fundamental claim is that Christianity (as he saw in the West) is a poisoner of Western culture and the perversion of Jesus' words and practice. In this light, the provocative title expresses primarily the animus of Nietzsche towards Christianity, as such. In this book, Nietzsche is very critical of the institutionalized religion and its priestly class, from which he himself...read more

    Friedrich Nietzsche's 'The Antichrist' might be more aptly named 'The Antichristian,' for it is an unmitigated attack on Christianity that Nietzsche makes within the text instead of an exposition on evil or Satan as the title might suggest. In 'The Antichrist,' Nietzsche presents a highly controversial view of Christianity as a damaging influence upon western civilization that must come to an end. Regardless of ones religious or philosophical point of view, 'The Antichrist' makes for an engaging philosophical...read more

    Composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the most famous and influential work of German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The work is a philosophical novel in which the character of Zarathustra, a religious prophet-like figure, delivers a series of lessons and sermons in a Biblical style that articulate the central ideas of Nietzsche's mature thought. Key to the philosophy of Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a rejection of traditional systems of religious morality, the idea of the will to power, and a vision of a new, higher mode of being, the 'übermensch' or 'Superman,' one of Nietzsche's most famous and controversial figures. As innovative stylistically as it...read more

    The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's autobiography, Ecce Homo, was the last prose work that he wrote before his illness in 1889. Coming at the end of an extraordinarily productive year in which he had produced The Twilight of the Idols and The Antichrist, Nietzsche shuns any pretense at modesty with chapter titles include “Why I am so Wise”, “Why I am so Clever” and “Why I Write Such Excellent Books”. His translator Anthony M. Ludovici states, Ecce Homo “is not only a coping-stone worthy of the wonderful creations of that year, but also a fitting conclusion to his whole life, in the form of a grand summing up of his character as a man, his purpose as a reformer, and his...read more

    Más allá del bien y del mal, preludio de una filosofía del futuro, es uno de los textos fundamentales de la filosofía del siglo XIX, de Friedrich Nietzsche. Publicado en 1886, Nietzsche atacaba en él lo que consideraba vacuidad moral de los pensadores de su siglo, falta de sentido crítico alguno de los autodenominados moralistas y su pasiva aceptación de la moral heredada judeo-cristiana. Más allá del bien y del mal recorre todos los temas fundamentales de la madurez filosófica de Nietzsche y en parte puede ser leído como un desarrollo, en términos más directos, de las ideas que el autor ya había propuesto en un sentido más metafórico en Así habló...read more
