About the Author

Friedrich Nietzsche was born on October 15, 1844, to the family of a Protestant minister in the town of Rocken, which is located in the Saxony-Anhalt region of what is now eastern Germany. After studying philosophy in Bonn and Leipzig, Nietzsche became a professor at the University of Basel, Switzerland, in 1869. Later, he opted to become a Swiss citizen. While working in Switzerland, he published his first book, a literary work titled THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY FROM THE SPIRIT OF MUSIC. This volume was produced during Nietzsche's friendship with the composer Richard Wagner, though only a few years would pass before the two would part ways as a result of personal and intellectual differences. In failing health and unable to devote himself full time to both teaching and independent writing, Nietzsche chose to resign his university position. During the next decade he wrote such works as THUS SPOKE ZARATHUSTRA (most of which appeared in 1883), BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL (1886), GENEOLOGY OR MORALS (1887), TWILIGHT OF THE GODS (1888), ANTICHIRST (1888), and ECCE HOMO (1888). His collapse while in Turin, Italy, in early 1889, would prove the beginning of a long and arduous struggle with ill-health and insanity. Nietzsche died in the care of his family in Weimar on August 25, 1900, just a few weeks prior to his 56th birthday. Nietzsche advocated the view that humankind should reject otherworldliness and instead rely on its own creative potential to discover values that best serve the social good. His infamous "superman" or "overman" is one who has recognized how to channel individual passions in the direction of creative outlets. In rejecting the morality of the masses, Nietzsche celebrates the pursuit of classical virtues. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
