about this book

The book Nietzsche called "the most personal of all my books," it contains some of his most sustained discussions of art and morality, knowledge and truth, the intellectual conscience, and the origin of logic. It "mirrors all of Nietzsche's thought and could be related in hundreds of ways to his other books, his notes, and his letters. And yet it is complete in itself. For it is a work of art."--Walter Kaufmann, from the Introduction
