Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nietzsche called The Gay Science the most personal of all my books. It was here that he first proclaimed the death of God — to which a large part of the book is devoted — and his doctrine ofthe eternal recurrence.

Walter Kaufmann's commentary, with its many quotations from previously untranslated letters, brings to life Nietzsche as a human being and illuminates his philosophy. The bookcontains some of Nietzsche's most sustained discussions of art and morality, knowledge and truth, the intellectual conscience and the origin of logic.

Most of the book was written just before Thus SpokeZarathustra, the last part five years later, after Beyond Good and Evil. We encounter Zarathustra in these pages as well as many of Nietzsche's most interesting philosophical ideas and the largest collection of his ownpoetry that he himself ever published.

Walter Kaufmann's English versions of Nietzsche represent one of the major translation enterprises of our time. He is the first philosopher to have translatedNietzsche's major works, and never before has a single translator given us so much of Nietzsche.
