Human, All Too Human by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Book Description"Human, All Too Human" (1878) is often considered the start of Friedrich Nietzsche's mature period. A complex work that explores many themes to which Nietzsche later returned, it marks a significant departure from his previous thinking. Here Nietzsche breaks with his early allegiance to Schopenhauer and Wagner, and establishes the overall framework of his later philosophy. In contrast to his previous disdain for science, now Nietzsche views science as key to undercutting traditional metaphysics. This he sees as a crucial step in the emergence of free spirits who will be the avant-garde of culture.In summing up the crucial change of perspective expressed in "Human, All Too Human", Nietzsche used the following words in his later work "Ecce Homo": '"Human, All Too Human" is a memorial of a crisis ...With this book I liberated myself from that in my nature which did not belong to me. Idealism does not belong to me ...realities were altogether lacking in my knowledge, and the 'idealities' were worth damn all! A downright burning thirst seized hold of me: thenceforward I pursued in fact nothing other than physiology, medicine, and natural science.' This is an essential work for anyone who wishes to understand Nietzsche's incisive critique of Western culture and values.

Aphorisms on Love and Hate, Paperback (February 2015)

Birth of Tragedy, Paperback (February 2015)
Argues the importance of the tension between what the author called Apollonian and Dionysian forces. In this title, the author boldly combines aesthetics and psychology in a creative meditation on the sources of artistic inspiration. It also addresses the problem of nihilism in modern culture.
Beyond Good and Evil, Hardback (November 2014)
One of the most iconoclastic philosophers of all time, the author dramatically rejected notions of good and evil, truth and God. With wit and subversive energy, he demands that the individual impose their own 'will to power' upon the world. This book demonstrates that the world is steeped in false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'.

As essential aspects of the work of a German philosopher, it may highlight the struggle for a new idea of culture. They also have a desire for power and to inform the Western culture of values which they deny as forms of morality.
