about this book

This first critical edition in any language of Nietzsche's notebooks includes his writings on such topics as nihilism, art, psychology, morality, religion, and the theory of knowledge. Down through the Nazi period The Will to Power was often mistakenly considered to be Nietzsche's crowning systematic labor; since World War II it has frequently been denigrated, just as fallaciously, as being not worth reading. In fact, it represents a stunning selection from Nietzsche's notebooks, in a topical arrangement that enables readers to find what Nietzsche wrote on myriad subjects. No previous edition--even in the original German--shows which notes Nietzsche utilized subsequently in his works, and which sections are not paralleled in the finished books. Nor has any previous edition furnished a commentary or index. Translated by Walter Kaufmann and R.J. Hollingdale; Edited, with commentary and index, by Walter Kaufmann.
