about this book

What Nietzsche Really Said gives a lucid overview—both informative and demystifying—of perhaps the most widely read and least understood philosopher in history.

Friedrich Nietzsche’s aggressive independence, flamboyance, sarcasm, and celebrationo of strength has struck responsive chords in contemporary culuture. But Nietzsche’s ideas are often overshadowed by the myths and rumors that surround his sex life, his politics and his sanity. In this lively and comprehensive analysis, Nietzsche scholars Robert C. Solomon and Kathleen M. Higgins get to the heart of Nietzsche’s philosophy, from his ideas on the “will to power” to his attack on religion and morality and his infamous Übermensch (superman).

“A survival kit for those intending an expedition into Nietzsche territory, a refresher course for those who have been there, a map of the danger spots, and an encyclopedia of the main wonders. A valuable book.”—Arthur C. Danto, professor of philosophy, Columbia University.
