"Nietzsche's Best 8 Books" is a searchable ebook and allows following the many themes and subjects that Nietzsche came back to throughout his books.

From the Introduction by the Editor:
"University philosophers, especially from America and England, have always been bewildered and irritated by Nietzsche. He doesn't fit anywhere. His influence has been outside university culture - among artists, dancers, poets, writers, novelists, psychologists, playwrights. Some of the most famous who publicly acknowledged being strongly influenced by Nietzsche were Picasso, Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, William Butler Yeats, Rainer Rilke, Allen Ginsberg, Khalil Gibran, Martin Buber, H.L. Mencken, Emma Goldman, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Thomas Mann, Hermann Hesse, Jack London, Franz Kafka, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Karl Jaspers, Alfred Adler, Fritz Perls, Eugene O'Neill and George Bernard Shaw. . . . Explore Nietzsche yourself. He mostly wrote directly and clearly, without scholarly jargon. See if he brings out the artist or psychologist or dancer in you."

L'autore

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a nineteenth-century German philosopher and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy, and science, using a distinctive German language style and displaying a fondness for metaphor and aphorism. Nietzsche's influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. His style and radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth have resulted in much commentary and interpretation, mostly in the continental tradition, and to a lesser extent in analytic philosophy. His key ideas include the interpretation of tragedy as an affirmation of life, an eternal recurrence (which numerous commentators have re-interpreted), a rejection of Platonism, and a repudiation of both Christianity and egalitarianism (especially in the form of democracy and socialism).

5.0 su 5 stelle The most amazing philosophical work 7 gennaio 2013
Di Lady Z - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
I feel that I must add a review here seeing that the only review is by somebody religious with bad taste and education. This book by Nietzsche is the first (but major) step towards enlightenment. I understand some people find it difficult to comprehend, but that is his whole point: the Overman (Ubermensch in German or superman)is somebody who has developed themselves in all senses including a bright, brilliant and agile mind. I understood everything what I read and I am in awe. A key point is we should strive to achieve happiness within ourselves. And this is a very difficult task as we are embroiled in our 'bad karma' - a collection of repressed feelings that spring out from prohibitions that go against our spirit. These feelings tie us to false morals, false gods, false actions and lives. They make us small. And those who are trapped in smallness then cannot possibly allow for greatness in others. As they mock and criticise the great they further prohibit the greatness for themselves thereby re-enforcing the bullying of their spirits. I wish you all to find your genius, your greatness, self-love and love.

1.0 su 5 stelle Abhorrent Translation 28 dicembre 2013
Di jhollander049 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
The cheap kindle version is a devastating translation of Nietzsche's thoughts. It appears to be the version that his anti-Semitic sister edited after he had fallen mentally ill. It's irresponsible to leave a scholars work like this...but perhaps that is why this version is so cheap.

Di Rebecca - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

First and foremost: this is not a review of the literary quality of Nietzsche's work, but rather of this particular publication.

I've read this book several times- as I imagine is true of many of you, at various noteworthy phases of my life where it took on new and different meanings. As a result, I've read at least three distinct versions of this work, including the original German (which is a second language to me).

To begin with, this is the first that included a truly comprehensive foreword regarding Nietzsche's relationship to his works along a timeline- someone coming upon "Zarathustra" as a first Nietzsche read, or as a student, will find a lot of very helpful contextualization before they even begin reading the text itself.

Moving on to the text itself, I regard it as a much-needed modern interpretation of "Zarathustra." As much as Nietzsche's goal may well have been to parody religious and mystical trappings, the outdated language of the German-English translation is to many distracting and off-putting. This translation preserves the spirit of the work in modern, straightforward English without any liberties taken with the cultural nuances of the German or the overall storytelling style that was characteristic of Nietzsche at this point in his career.

Overall, the best "Zarathustra" you can read. The Kindle edition is quite nicely formatted, too.

4.0 su 5 stelle Magnum Opus, Surely. 6 settembre 2013
Di M. DeKalb - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
It's a tough read, don't think it isn't, but it is lovely in both its hope and its hopelessness. For all mankind: unattainable. There is often the positive notion, in its most hopeful moment contrasted by the basest derogation by man in which there surely appears no hope for him. It appears that most people, the generally unread, have done much quoting of Nietzsche out of context and ultimately, Nietzsche must have known he'd be oft misquoted for he states: `I suspect ye would call my Superman - a devil!' (2021). In the appendix it is also a note to casual readers - this is not where to being reading any Nietzsche, so if you're starting here - stop!. This is `the opus' which is the child of many works of previous thought, for the future love of all that is Nietzsche, don't start here! This is the allegorical surmising of much of Nietzsche's work. Quite fantastic.

This work has the ability to present in a very new-age fashion, per philosophically its primary goal is transcendental, to go beyond man's current state, to shed the chains of our egos, to experience the world sensually without intense derisive judgment and to laugh at our situations of gravity. It is fantastic in that because it's a book `for all and none', anyone spiritually inclined can sense the weightiness as Nietzsche points out all the flaws of humanity and casts his wish for the recognition of the Superman, for something better than what we are, even if we shall never achieve his ends.

As a social commentary of the people of the times, what he sees and experiences around himself. Astute observations of the workings of mankind, essentially stating that we've turned away from the true meaning of `God', and that far too many people place value erroneously in inane and mistakenly virtuous things. When what is lacking, both secular and non, is the true essence of `love'. This is the closest to `God' man can get; the Superman is meant to surpass humanity. However, having such an appetite for war, self-destruction / deception, clinging to idols, self-loathing, and `shame, shame, shame - that is the history of man' (1267) motif, the success rate is unlikely at best. In fact, the Superman has never been seen by Zarathustra. There is both Aeschylus-ian warning of man's poorer qualities and his wisdom in this work. Nietzsche was a big fan of the Greek play-writes.

Zoroaster, as a historical being is relevant in the espoused philosophy as the goal is to sustain the truth through constructive thought, words and deeds. This ties to Nietzsche's `Superman' - a man of higher values than today's common man, and as a most basic principle - all that stems from power is good (master-morality); all from weakness is bad, but there is no lasting good nor bad, and good and bad are based relatively. The pinnacle though is the `Will to Power', which encompassing the `Will to Truth', is essentially man commanding himself and the desire to command others, recognizing that everything is done for power, that even those commanded want to command - part of the human condition. Doing this in egoless fashion opens the world of experience, truth, and sets man out only to experience his sensory world with what little rationality is found in anything. The `Will to Power' is also where redemption is best found but never to be - `to transform every "it was" into "thus would I have it!" (1952), for no amount of Willing can change the past, our wills greatest weakness - desiring a disposition more toward the import of the now.

Zarathustra finds no greater power on earth than `good' and `bad'. And to this he adds that nothing is universally good or bad between differing people, but posits that this valuation of things was meant only to give a human meaning to the world, and the herd has always existed before the ego, thusly do people somewhat unwittingly follow their cultural bonds.

In the first book we encounter Zarathustra who wishes to leave man and sink to his abyss, for he realizes that he is nothing like them, and they scorn him as we see him enter a town and attempt to explain his philosophy of the `Superman' - `I want to teach men the sense of their existence, which is the Superman' (446). In this section it appears despite being a pariah, Zarathustra is both cynical and hopeful in man's ascension - `It is time for man to fix his goal. It is time for man to plant the germ of his highest hope.' (400) Zarathustra then decides he needs companions and begins delivery of his discourses upon a variety of topics, the primary focus is the creation of the Superman: `Let your love to life be love to your highest hope; and let your highest hope be the highest thought of life! Your highest thought... and it is this: man is something that is to be surpassed.' (797) This is related to the `Will to Truth' in that it is `the thinkableness of all being' (1599) and this is a direct step in surpassing man.
Man can't create God, or Nietzsche's Will to Truth, a being who has experienced all human sensory experiences. Creating is the great salvation from suffering, however suffering is necessary for the creative facet to appear, as is a great transformation.

Zarathustra speaks of finding his soul through loneliness and metamorphosis of the soul (camel, lion, child). Once a man's soul resembles that of a child he may will his own world sans the artifice of socialized structure. He advocates the `Backworlds' where men create in their loneliness. However, there are also many superfluous men, `marred is life by the many-too-many.' (754) and his hope is they're quickly suckered out of this life by those that preach the eternal afterlife.

Zarathustra recognizes the struggle against the ego, generally in vain as it guides us through our feeling states in this life. He also states his disposition of those whom despise the body as those who would make each man marginal, and these sorts are often of the non-secular variety, the preachers of death and those that wish away with the corporeal life. As a reaction against the typical herd mentality Zarathustra also attacks the organization known as `the state', or that establishment which perpetuates values and virtues unto it's all too superfluous populous. Smaller than the state is the city, which essentially serves the same purpose.

To Zarathustra virtues create a battle ground where the conflict is often too much for man to persevere against. `... one thing is the thought, another thing is the deed, and another thing is the idea of the deed. The wheel of causality doth not roll between them.' (670) The essence is to do good work.

The end of the work surmises with a litany of characters dining with Zarathustra in his cave. Here Zarathustra suffers the philosophical attacks these men were prone to deliver. He defends himself, the philosophy of his Superman, Will to Power and his estimation of the social conditions he sees himself living in. Ultimately all joy is deeper than grief and all joys want eternity, the noontide arrives, man must be surpassed!

The poetry and fantasy make it difficult to discover what he really is saying and why. The recurring Superman theme goes unexplained. it was good to have the experience; although I would have trouble telling anyone what Nietzsche thinks.
