Ecce Homo

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the title of his autobiography, Nietzsche chose Pilate's words upon discharging Christ to the mob: Ecce Homo, or "Behold the man." The philosopher's dramatically egotistical review of his life and works (featuring chapters called Why I Am So Wise and Why I Write Such Excellent Books) transcends mere arrogance with its use of masterful language to convey relevant ideas: the importance of questioning traditional morality, establishing autonomy, and making a commitment to creativity.

Synopsis:

Published posthumously in 1908, Ecce Homo was written in 1888 and completed just a few weeks before Nietzsche's complete mental collapse. Its outrageously egotistical review of the philosopher's life and works are redeemed from mere arrogance by masterful language and ever-relevant ideas — in addition to settling scores with his many personal and philosophical enemies.

Synopsis:

Strong appeal to students of philosophy and literature.
