There may be a few more but i have filled the poll with the 8 i know of-
I have read Some of "The Antichrist",The Birth Of Tragedy" and"Thus Spoke Zarathustra" and it's really HEAVY work to me, interesting stuff he has wrote,some of it i will be quite honest and i will say that some of it i really dont understand!.
"Thus Spoke Zarahustra" and i have nearly got to the end of it,is excellent so far so good, it really would make a WONDERFUL, Thought Provking Film if Peter Jackson directed it after the great job he done on the LOTR pics.
The ONE nietzsche book i have completed is his Autobiography"Ecce Homo" It is Hilarious!! with chapter titles like "Why i am so Clever" and Why iam a Destiny" just to name a couple, i think this was completed just as he was getting ill.
Are any people here who would to share there thoughts on him and his work?.
I have read all of Nietzsche over and over. He is the greatest Western philosopher in my opinion.
Jim was thoroughly imbued with Nietzsche's work - he understood it on both an intellectual and an intuitive level.
I would recommend reading Ecce Homo, and at each point where he mentions his own books there [he gives short chapters to them], then read the books in the order he mentions them. So when in Ecce Homo you come to the chapter called the 'Birth of Tragedy', after the book of that name; read what he says there, then go and read The Birth of Tragedy itself. Then return to Ecce Homo and go on in that fashion.
After that you can read the later works, such as The Antichrist and The Will to Power.
After reading all his works in order you will understand him more as his writing is a kind of philosophical autobiography.
It is essentially about how to live and create in the time after the Death of God.
I’ve read all of that at one time or the other. I don’t mind the heaviness so much but it seems like a week after reading it, I start forgetting everything I read (as it seems too complicated to really retain). Maybe I need a few more I.Q. points. My favorite was The Antichrist though.
