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)» View all books by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
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'.
