      This is the German translation of a book first published in French in under the title Les lectures françaises de Nietzsche (Paris, Presses Univ. de France), a title which perhaps better captures its content—it is not an overview of the topic “Nietzsche and France,” as the German title might suggest.   Nietzsche was gravely concerned with ensuring the world would remain fertile for the growth of true human excellence. Thus he wrote for the higher man alone; urging him to overcome the temptations of herd morality and instead to proceed on his own heroic life-path, and in doing so provide inspiration for future generations of potential higher men.

        The dedication of the book to Williams and the summary of the book in the introduction refer back to Pippin’s previous paper on Williams’s Nietzsche interpretation, which appeared in under the title Nietzsche’s Moral Psychology and the French Moralist Tradition (in Volker Gerhardt & Renate Reschke, eds., Bildung – Humanitas. Friedrich Nietzsche - Friedrich Nietzsche - Decade of isolation and creativity (–89): Apart from the books Nietzsche wrote between and , it is doubtful that his life held any intrinsic interest. Seriously ill, half-blind, in virtually unrelenting pain, he lived in boarding houses in Switzerland, the French Riviera, and Italy, with only limited human contact.

        In Nietzsche, Psychology, & First Philosophy, Robert B. Pippin gives us a picture of Nietzsche as a French rather than a German thinker, framing him less as a philosopher in any conceptual sense than an essayist, a moralist, and a s: 2. Nietzsche's acquaintance with the French moralists dates back to his student days, when he was introduced to them by his reading of Schopenhauer, who several times praises the moralists as predecessors of his own style of psychological observation," and of Lange's Geschichte des Materialismus ().3 In he requested, and received, a copy.

Nietzsche also admired the French moralists of the 17th century such as La Rochefoucauld, La Bruyère and Vauvenargues, whose books he received from his sister in He also admired Pascal and, most of all, Stendhal. He also read Eduard von Hartmann's "Philosophy of the Unconscious", and alludes to it in some of his works.

Master–slave morality (German: Herren- und Sklavenmoral) is a central theme of Friedrich Nietzsche's works, particularly in the first essay of his book, On the Genealogy of che argued that there were two fundamental types of morality: "master morality" and "slave morality".Master morality values pride and power, while slave morality values kindness, empathy, and sympathy.

In this major new interpretation of Nietzsche’s work, Robert B. Pippin challenges various traditional views of Nietzsche, taking him at his word when he says that his writing can best be understood as a kind of traces this idea of Nietzsche as a psychologist to his admiration for the French moralists: La Rochefoucauld.

Friedrich Nietzsche developed his philosophy during the late 19th century. He owed the awakening of his philosophical interest to reading Arthur Schopenhauer's Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung (The World as Will and Representation,revised ) and said that Schopenhauer was one of the few thinkers that he respected, dedicating to him his essay Schopenhauer als Erzieher (Schopenhauer.

Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most elusive thinkers in the philosophical tradition. His highly unusual style and insistence on what remains hidden or unsaid in his writing make pinning him to a particular position tricky.

Nonetheless, certain readings of his work have become standard and influential. In this major new interpretation of Nietzsche’s work, Robert B. Pippin challenges. Pippin traces this idea of Nietzsche as a psychologist to his admiration for the French moralists: La Rochefoucauld, Pascal, Stendhal, and especially Montaigne.

In distinction from philosophers, Pippin shows, these writers avoided grand metaphysical theories in favor of reflections on life as lived and experienced. Perhaps no philosopher is more of a conundrum than Nietzsche, the solitary rebel, poet, wayfarer, anti-revolutionary Aufklärer and theorist of aristocratic radicalism.

His accusers identify in his ‘superman’ the origins of Nazism, and thus issue an irrevocable condemnation; his defenders pursue a hermeneutics of innocence founded ultimately in allegory. This book contains the first English translations of The Origin of the Moral Sensations and Psychological Observations, the two most important works by the German philosopher Paul Rée.

These essays present Rée’s moral philosophy, which influenced the ideas of his close friend Friedrich Nietzsche considerably. Nietzsche scholars have often incorrectly attributed to him arguments and. 5 The Shadow of Suspicion Falls on the Moralists 6 Hegel and Nietzsche: Two Opposing Critiques of the Moral Worldview 7 From Universal Guilt to the Innocence of Becoming 8 Four Stages in Nietzsche’s Development 11 ‘Aristocratic Radicalism’ and the ‘New Party of Life’ 1 The ‘New Party of Life’.

What Nietzsche is warning against here—the substantialization and reification of what is really a kind of placeholder used to very different purposes by "moralists"—is an interpretive tendency shared both by the anglophone academic philosophy literature and the European literature so influenced by Heidegger's lectures on Nietzsche in the.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (/ ˈ n iː tʃ ə, ˈ n iː tʃ i /; German: [ˈfʁiːdʁɪç ˈvɪlhɛlm ˈniːtʃə] or [ˈniːtsʃə]; 15 October – 25 August ) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, and philologist whose work has exerted a profound influence on modern intellectual history.

He began his career as a classical philologist before turning to philosophy. One of the most famous philosophical book of the last years was published in Even the most unfamiliar with philosophy have it in their library, or have at least heard about Thus Spoke che described it as his deepest philosophical work, the most representative reflection of his thinking and vision, referring to the issue of the death of God and Übermensch‘s.

This is the third book I've read of Nietzsche's. The first was a collection from various writings, and the second was "The Anti-Christ." Beyond Good and Evil was Nietzsche's attempt to summarize his entire philosophy into one book.

I don't know if I'd ever call anything Nietzsche wrote a summary, but this book does lay out his principles in. Let’s start with the Safranski book, Nietzsche: A Philosophical are absolutely loads of biographies of Nietzsche. Why did you go with this one in particular?

I think the virtue of this book is that it has a detailed and readable narrative of the life, but it combines it with an introduction to the philosophical works, which is written at a very appropriate level for the beginner.It is difficult to say in a sentence just what Robert Pippin's Nietzsche, Psychology, and First Philosophy sets out to do.

After all, Pippin himself says that, given the kinds of claims that Nietzsche makes about how Nietzsche is to be read, that is, given the claims that Nietzsche makes in his "metapassages," "there are even occasional attempts to develop an esoteric reading of Nietzsche, but /5(4)."Nietzsche's Reclamation of Philosophy" published on 01 Jan by Brill | Rodopi.
