    Penguin Books Ltd 2003; Not Available

    The literary career of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) spanned less than twenty years, but no area of intellectual inquiry was left untouched by his iconoclastic genius.

  • Thus Spoke Zarathustraby Friedrich Nietzsche; R. J. Hollingdale

    Penguin Books Ltd 1974; Not Available

    Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most famous and influential work.

  • Tales of Hoffmannby E.T.A. Hoffmann; R. J. Hollingdale

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; Not Available

    This selection of Hoffmann's finest short stories vividly demonstrates his intense imagination and preoccupation with the supernatural, placing him at the forefront of both surrealism and the modern horror genre.

  • Essays and Aphorismsby Arthur Schopenhauer; R. J. Hollingdale

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; Not Available

    One of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, Schopenhauer (1788-1860) believed that human action is determined not by reason but by 'will' - the blind and irrational desire for physical existence. This selection of his writings on religion, ethics, politics, women, suicide, books and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer's last... more...

    Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves?and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution.

  • Twilight of Idols and Anti-Christby Friedrich Nietzsche; Michael Tanner; R. J. Hollingdale

    Penguin Books Ltd 1990; Not Available

    'Twilight of the Idols', an attack on all the prevalent ideas of his time, offers a lightning tour of his whole philosophy. It also prepares the way for 'The Anti-Christ', a final assault on institutional Christianity. Both works show Nietzsche lashing out at self-deception, astounded at how often morality is based on vengefulness and resentment. Both... more...

  • Ecce Homoby Friedrich Nietzsche; Michael Tanner; R. J. Hollingdale

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; Not Available

    In late 1888, only weeks before his final collapse into madness, Nietzsche (1844-1900) set out to compose his autobiography, and Ecce Homo remains one of the most intriguing yet bizarre examples of the genre ever written. In this extraordinary work Nietzsche traces his life, work and development as a philosopher, examines the heroes he has identified... more...

  • Beyond Good and Evilby Friedrich Nietzsche; Michael Tanner; R. J. Hollingdale

    Penguin Books Ltd 2003; Not Available

    Beyond Good and Evil confirmed Nietzsche's position as the towering European philosopher of his age. The work dramatically rejects the tradition of Western thought with its notions of truth and God, good and evil. Nietzsche demonstrates that the Christian world is steeped in a false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. With wit and energy, he... more...
