Nietzsche's impact on modern thought cannot be overstated. Generations have been influenced by this controversial and exciting thinker whose work nourishes academic fields as diverse as philosophy, literary studies, and political theory. This collection brings together in one volume substantial selections from Nietzsche's complete oeuvre, including some never before published in book form in English. It also contains impressive pedagogical features, including editorial sections on Nietzsche's life and importance, an introduction to his philosophical ideas, introductions to each major section of writings, and a comprehensive guide to further reading. Not only does the reader generously excerpt all of Nietzsche's major texts, it also showcases selections from his lesser-known writings, including his early critiques "On Schopenhauer", "Philosophy in the Tragic Age of the Greeks", and the seminal essay "On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense." In addition, there are new translations of key pieces from Nietzsche's unpublished notebooks of the 1880s, including the first sketch of the doctrine of eternal recurrence, and the "Lenzer Heide" text on European nihilism
