Nietzsche: Daybreak by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Book DescriptionDaybreak marks the arrival of Nietzsche's 'mature' philosophy and is indispensable for an understanding of his critique of morality and 'revaluation of all values'. This volume presents the distinguished translation by R. J. Hollingdale, with a new introduction that argues for a dramatic change in Nietzsche's views from Human, All Too Human to Daybreak, and shows how this change, in turn, presages the main themes of Nietzsche's later and better-known works such as On the Genealogy of Morality. The main themes of Daybreak are located in their intellectual and philosophical contexts: in Nietzsche's training as a classical philologist and his fascination with the Sophists and Thucydides; in the moral philosophies of Kant and Schopenhauer, which are the central foci of Nietzsche's critique of morality; and in the German Materialist movement of the 1850s and after, which shaped Nietzsche's conception of persons. The edition is completed by a chronology, notes and a guide to further reading.

Books By Author Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Aphorisms on Love and Hate, Paperback (February 2015)
Contains a selection of Nietzsche's brilliant and challenging aphorisms, examining the pleasures of revenge, the falsity of pity, and the incompatibility of marriage with the philosophical life.
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'.
Humano, Demasiado Humano, Paperback / softback (October 2014)» View all books by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
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.
