Philosophical Writings, part of the German Library Series contains essential portions of the¿theses that make Nietzsche the most controversial of philosophers. It includes: The Birth of Tragedy, Beyond Good and Evil, The Gay Science, Untimely Meditations, Human, All too Human, and other works. Included are Preface to Richard Wagner, On Truth and Falsity in their Extramortal Sense, The History of an Error, We Antipodes, Geneaology of Morals: A Polemic, and On the Pathos of Truth. Although his reputation has bordered on notoriety, Nietzsche's influence has unquestionably not diminished with time, and our fascination with him will be further fed by the publication of this volume.
