Introduction by Peter Gay
Translated and edited by Walter Kaufmann
Commentary by Martin Heidegger, Albert Camus, and Gilles Deleuze
One hundred years after his death, Friedrich Nietzsche remains the most influential philosopher of the modern era. Basic Writings of Nietzsche gathers the complete texts of five of Nietzsche?s most important works, from his first book to his last: 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. It is a definitive guide to the full range of Nietzsche?s thought.
Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide
Review: A collection of Walter Kauffman's masterful translations of five of Nietzsche's greatest works: The Birth of Tragedy, which forever changed assumptions about Greek culture and the nature of tragedy; Beyond Good and Evil, as comprehensive an overview of Nietzsche's thought as the delightfully aphoristic Thus Spake Zarathustra, but stated with considerably greater clarity; On the Geneaology of Morals, his major work on ethics; The Case of Wagner, a surprisingly witty piece written after Nietzsche's break with Richard Wagner; and Ecce Homo, Nietzsche's passionate and beautiful analysis of his life and work.
