  • 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.

    'Hört mich! Denn ich bin der und der! Verwechselt mich vor allem nicht!'(Friedrich Nietzsche: Ecce Homo)Erst für spätere Generationen hat Nietzsche eine Offenheit, ein wirkliches Interesse und Verständnis erwartet: 'Wie dürfte ich mich mit denen verwechseln, für welche heute schon Ohren wachsen', schrieb er und wir fragen: Ist es nun an der Zeit für ein solches Verstehen und bietet das Medium Hörbuch womöglich den Königsweg für das 'Wachsen der Ohren', um das Denken Nietzsches mit all seinen fruchtbaren Widersprüchen für das Leben zu gewinnen? Nicht zuletzt bedeutet dies auch ein neues Nachdenken über, womöglich auch eine Revision eigener hartnäckiger Vorurteile bezüglich...read more

    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

    ''Jenseits von Gut und Böse' ... Dies heißt zum Mindesten nicht 'Jenseits von Gut und Schlecht'.' (Friedrich Nietzsche: Zur Genealogie der Moral. Erste Abhandlung) 'An einer Theorie ist wahrhaft nicht ihr geringster Reiz, dass sie widerlegbar ist: gerade damit zieht sie feinere Köpfe an. Es scheint, dass die hundertfach widerlegte Theorie vom 'freien Willen' ihre Fortdauer nur noch diesem Reize verdankt -: immer wieder kommt Jemand und fühlt sich stark genug, sie zu widerlegen.'

    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

    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!'

    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

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.
