Martin Heidegger's lectures on Nietzsche represent the most penetrating and thoughtful inquiries in all of Nietzsche scholarship. This volume contains Volume I: The Will to Power as Art, and Volume II: The Eternal Recurrence of the Same. Heidegger was the first thinker to repudiate the common view that Nietzsche's doctrine of 'Eternal Return' was a mere curiosity-a mythological playing that detracted from his 'serious' political ideas regarding will to power. Heidegger reorients our understanding of Nietzsche back to the eternal recurrence of the same, and argues that it is both the central idea of Nietzsche's philosophy as well as the grounding principle of will to power. Heidegger's work on the doctrine of eternal return are practically incomparable in terms of their rigor and creativity. He has successfully placed Nietzsche's work as the total overcoming of Platonism and as the consummation of Western Metaphysics. A true tour de force of philosophical inquiry.

Oh Heidegger. The light-bearer of the twentieth century (Lucifer). And Nietzsche. Had I not opened your Zarathustra I would not be the man I am today - a bum-loser by conventional standards but, for all that, alive and happy and full of vigour and zest for life, including the suffering it contains. It's all good!

Anyway. Heidegger's two Nietzsche volumes are pure philosophical perfection. Every word counts, every single turn of phrase is perfect and profound. For the astute thinker Heidegger's Two-Volume set on Nietzsche is merely paving the way for some new serious thinking, particularly on the concepts "truth", "conscience", "knowledge" etc. It is never the case with Heidegger of scholarly respectability. On the contrary where there is respectability, there is no philosophy. Heidegger knew that all too well.

The two volumes are also very funny as well in a sort of satanic way. Heidegger is beyond a doubt Nietzsche's true philosophical heir; Heidegger is one of those new philosophers Nietzsche predicted in Beyond Good and Evil, a "tempter" as he called them. Profoundly proud, arrogant and vigorous - in a word, "evil" or, in master morality terms, "noble".

Heidegger focuses on Nietzsche's unpublished aphorisms contained in the never-to-be treatise "Revaluation of all Values" which took the bastard form "The Will to Power", a spurious yet highly provocative read.

Unlike Kaufmann's Nietzsche which paraphrases Nietzschean insights and tries to make them palatable to a respectable audience, Heidegger's Nietzsche lets that thinker's work stand untouched - it is up to us to confront and read Nietzsche's output - and focuses on those elements of Nietzsche's thought which need clarifying - the greatest gift of a thinker's word is what is un-thought in it.

A necessary and joyous read for thinkers the world over.

If you like Nietzsche, don't ignore Heidegger's monumental achievement.

Walter Kaufmann's Nietzche, psychologist and philosopher and on Heidegger in Kaufmann's, Discovering The Mind, Vol II, criticizes Heidegger to a great degree. In much of Kaufmann's objections to Heidegger's analogy of Nietzsche include his attempt to explain man's "essential ontology" into what really amounts to anthropomorphism. Also the fact that Heidegger uses texts of Nietzsche from obscure manuscripts over his published works. This, along with Kaufmann's personal encounters with Heidegger, in which Heidegger claimed to have unpublished writings incapable of adequate translation and explanation in his possession, esoteric information, an obvious manifestation of a prideful and arrogant personality.
Now I will agree with the majority of Kaufmann's arguments against Heidegger, including the fact that the man was an active Nazi, a party member and an active advocate of a totalitarian atmosphere imposed at the University he taught at. And it must be noted; there is no anti-semtic writing here, there is only deep and profound analytic treatment of Nietzsche.
Despite all of Kaufmann's valid criticisms and objectifications, I find Heidegger's Nietzsche, both mesmerizing, thought provoking and soul stirring. One needs to recognize this book is Heidegger, not Nietzche and Heidegger is a deep analytical thinker, whereas, Nietzche was both philosophical and poetic and top it all off, psychological. It takes a man like Heidegger to give it the philosophical, analytical style. Perhaps it is bias and to a degree "scandalous," as Kaufmann so brazenly claims, but to ignore these volumes would be foolish. For me, Heidegger's work is monumental and inspirational.

Format: Paperback
I read the volumes on The Will To Power as Art and as Knowledge whilst at university studying philosophy and it illuminated Nietzsche's thought for me. Heidegger's is the only worthy exposition of his philosophy because not only does he seem to be the only one capable of comprehending it but he doesn't seek to distort it in any way or use it for his own ends. There are no ulterior motives here : Heidegger lets Nietzsche's philosophy speak for itself - and what a magnificent and awe-inspiring philosophy it is ! If you have ever wondered, as I certainly had prior to finding these works, about the precise meaning of Nietzsche's thought of the 'Eternal Recurrence of The Same', or how it relates to the 'Will to Power', then these are the book you want to read. I had become thoroughly frustrated at the cursory treatment which this part of N.'s philosophy receives elsewhere, but Heidegger shows that the thought of 'Eternal Recurrence' is in truth one of the two indispensable fundamental elements of N.'s philosophy - along with 'Will To Power', without which the thought of Eternal Recurrence cannot truly be thought. The lecture course 'Nietzsche' (reproduced in these books) is a comprehensive and faithful account of Nietzsche's thought (and life) - perhaps the only genuine one. It will also help those who know about Nietzsche's ideas but haven't encountered Heidegger's or can't see the relation between these two giants of Western thinking.
