9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Gibbs Stephanopoulos on January 3, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
This is certainly an interesting read that offers valuable insight into the development of some of Nietzsche's ideas for his later works, e.g. Thus Spake Zarathustra. Be prepared, however, to come across complex and obscure ideas and, at times, incomprehensible sentence construction - which may just perhaps be the trade off to this free version. That said, I still recommend this book if you wish to get inside Nietzsche's head.

"Between our highest art and philosophy and that which is recognised to be truly the oldest antiquity, there is no contradiction: they support and harmonise with one another. It is in this that I place my hopes...
The main standpoints from which to consider the importance of antiquity:
1. There is nothing about it for young people, for it exhibits man with an entire freedom from shame.
2. It is not for direct imitation, but it teaches by which means art has hitherto been perfected in the highest degree.
3. It is accessible only to a few, and there should be a police des maeurs, in charge of it--as there should be also in charge of bad pianists who play Beethoven.
4. These few apply this antiquity to the judgment of our own time, as critics of it; and they judge antiquity by their own ideals and are thus critics of antiquity."

This is a collection of notes for a never completed sequel to The Birth of Tragedy. They are wide ranging and profound, and instead of Schopenhauer and Wagner, one senses a touch of Burckhardt:

"The man who to-day wishes to be good and saintly has a more difficult task than formerly . in order to be "good," he must not be so unjust to knowledge as earlier saints were. He would have to be a knowledge-saint: a man who would link love with knowledge, and who would have nothing to do with gods or demigods or 'Providence,' as the Indian saints likewise had nothing to do with them. He should also be healthy, and should keep himself so, otherwise he would necessarily become distrustful of himself. And perhaps he would not bear the slightest resemblance to the ascetic saint, but would be much more like a man of the world.
The better the state is organised, the duller will humanity be. To make the individual uncomfortable is my task!

It is a decent book with works and quotes from Nietzche. Though, I wish it had also explained some of the misquotes also.
