    1 thought on “Nietzsche Within Your Grasp: The First Step to Understanding Nietzsche

    1. Although the title shows it is an introductory book I never thought it was going to be Nietzsche over-simplified. I don't really agree with the idea of such a book as any introduction to Nietzsche needs to be much longer, clearer, more detailed and helpful than this book. You cannot allocate to subjects such as "will to power", "individual over the herd", "superman", etc. only one paragraph, and recount few historical facts instead of giving any real explanations. I don't recommend the book even [...]

    2. I've never read Nietzsche, but this book made me want to. In particular, I'd like to read Beyond Good and Evil. From the description here, it seems pretty close to the way I think about things. I wouldn't say God is Dead living in America in 2015, but I might have said that about the God the Prussians worshiped in 1882. That's about when my ancestors left that part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and came here.

    3. The account, of course, is simplified, but it's a nice story of Nietzsche's philosophy. This book does a good job at winding everything together and has at least a couple of good points even for someone not that ''beginnerish'' in Nietzsche's philosophy.
