Comment:

Nietzsche makes his world, based on Becoming and Creating, in order to replace (Destroy! God help us!) Plato’s world which was based on Being and Knowing. I should really say Plato’s worlds; after all, Modernity and its various Ideologies are also, for Nietzsche, Platonisms that have descended into nihilism …That is the difficulty, ‘Worlds’, even philosophically manufactured worlds, tend to fragment over time. It is exactly as Heidegger somewhere indicated; nihilism is not the destructio

این آخرین جملات نیچه در این کتاب هست:
و آيا مي دانيد جهان از نظر من چيست؟ آيا آن را در آينه ي خويش به شما نشان خواهم داد؟ اين جهان هيولايي از كارمايه (انرژي) است، بي آغاز و بي انجام، يك انبوه محكم و آهنين از نيرو كه بزرگتر يا كوچكتر نمي شود، كه خود را به مصرف نمي رساند، بلكه تنها خود را دگرگون مي سازد؛ در كل، اندازه ي دگرگوني ناپذير دارد، موجودي خانه اش نه خرج مي شود و نه هرز مي رود، اما نيز بر درآمدش افزوده نمي شود؛ محصور در حصار <هيچي> است؛ نه چيزي محو شدني يا هدر رفتني است نه چيزي كه گست

It seems to me that the only thing more tragic than the fact that Nietzsche was never able to write the Will to Power, is that this hodgepodge of notes and jottings was mistaken for it. Still I am surprised that so many academics simply accepted all the ludicrous claims that it was his masterpiece. There was Heidegger who, perhaps defensively, suggested ignoring the published works in favor of it. And at an even further extreme was Derrida who thought we really ought to be looking more closely a ...more

I think the most important thing to keep in mind when reading “The Will to Power” is that it is NOT a “book” in the proper sense of the term. It is merely a collection of thoughts and scraps that are extensions of previous thoughts, meditations on works that were being fleshed out at that time, and projections towards future investigations. As Kauffman points out (who, by the way, I became a bit annoyed with throughout this edition with his constant self aggrandizement – despite the fact that he ...more

The lack of coherent structure in this work which may delight such lovers of disorder who might like to claim poor Fritz as their own is, in sooth, due to the unfortunate fact that Will to Power was not really written by Nietzsche. His sister, who appears to have gotten the short end of the genius stick in the family (and was thus deeply anti-semitic) collected her favorite of her brother's aphorisms which he had never intended to publish. At the time he was laid up in bed, sick and a maniac, so ...more

The editor Walter Kaufman says that everything a reader can understand about Nietzsche's philosophy is available from his completed books. The Will to Power is a compilation of notes from Nietzsche's manuscripts, organized by a publisher, that were either included in his published books or were notes of work in progress or work planned. The book still adds fascinating insight into Nietzsche's way of recording and dwelling on his ideas, and lends emphasis to one of his central concerns: human nat ...more

Nietzsche didn't even write this book! Even if he DID do some notes, the whole book was edited by his sister. I don't understand why it is so highly rated. Perhaps the same reason many people hate Friedrich Nietzsche for being Adolf Hitler's favorite philosopher - because they don't know a sh*t about the author. Good job, "readers".

مبدئيا أريد أن أصب جام غضبى وكامل سخطى على من نصحنى بقرائته ، ومن ناحية أخرى اريد أن استأثره بالشكر والعرفان فهذا الكتاب ليس للقراءة فقط وإنما كما كتب فى بدايته هو " إنجيل المستقبل " الكتاب لم يبق على قيمة من القيم العليا

When it comes to Nietzsche I have been prejudiced by the work of Walter Kaufmann and R.J. Hollingdale. Kaufmann, who translated most of the philosopher's works, clearly cared for his subject and attempted a positive reconstruction of the man in his biography of him as well as in his translations. His work as akin to that of an honest scholar of Christian antiquity who happens to be Christian himself.

Consequently, Kaufmann's attempt to fabricate his subject's unpublished manuscripts into a fair r

Book has given me so much. Above all, the work did turn upside-down everything I considered a good, proper or moral...true that in 1999 I was very Young and my personality wasnt yet developed...I have to add, that understanding latin, speaking spanish, german and english, was easier to read, I only needed some help for translation of french citates and it did enlarge my horizon...Time has come again and I will read it once again...I will add a note to present You the difference of understanding ...more

It's very interesting to compare this translation with the one my mother owns. This is newer than hers and it's based on more recent scholarship and a more complete original version. This translation negates much of the interference of Nietzsche's sister and her husband (who edited and reorganized his work to push their own antisemitic beliefs). The sense of Nietzsche's meaning and values in this newer version is profoundly different - and sometimes contradictory - to the translation that was st ...more

I reread The Will to Power recently and I absorbed, yet again, another set of meaning from this work.
Pros: Nietzsche makes me laugh and say "No he didn't!" quite often.

Cons: He switches between making up his own history and then whining about it quite often. But c'mon, it's Nietzche.

Overall: I didn't go all out on my review here mostly because there are dozens of volumes of commentaries on Nietzsche's work out there. I liked it, but I can't think of another person I would recommend it to.
Bradley
Too bad he was a Fascist. A really smart Fascist to boot! He wasn't a Nazi because he was not an anti-semite, but a Fascist none the less. Don't let your college professor sugar coat it, Nietzsche was bat-shit crazy, and that's why I love his books!
Richard
This is just selections from Nietzsche's notebooks of the 1880's, not a real book. But I'd rather have a collection of Nietzsche's B-sides and outtakes than any other philosopher's greatest hits.
Christophe
Fantastic book that gets misinterpreted and mangled constantly, by people who probbably have never read it or have no grasp of what it describes. If you're like me you'll love it ;o)
Paul
What kinda bugs me here is the loose thinking that goes into some reviews. N did hate anti Semites but that does not mean he was not anti Semitic himself. He hated anti Semites because they were stupid - as a rule - they are / were the 'many too many'. Also n did admire Jews - BUT this does not mean that he liked them. He despised their weakness, as he saw it - that they, and later, Christians really had nothing better to justify their low existence than to invent slave morality and externalised ...more

According to the introduction in my book, Will to Power "contains passages of varying degrees of completion from Nietzsche's notes for a major work which he labored on for over half a decade and ultimately abandoned."

Book 4, on Discipline and Breeding, is the section of most interest and probably most recognized. Niezsche details the "Superman" and if you are thinking about reading Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the background provided will clarify Nieztsche's intent and meaning.

I was just starting to reread this book and this passage totally reminded me of what I posted the other day here
. This book is really just a compilation of Nietzsche’s notebooks on unfinished writings, compiled and published posthumously. The part that applies to my game the most is “the position of art” section (#7)... the core part of what “the game” is about.

Kapitalno delo najveće muškarčine među filozofima i najvećeg filozofa među muškarčinama, Volja za moć je neka vrsta rekapitulacije svih glavnih ideja iz Ničeovih prethodnih knjiga, podeljena u tematske celine i objavljena posthumno zahvaljujući njegovoj sestri koja je prikupila sve neobjavljene beleške.

Niče je jedan od najozloglašenijih filozofa za koje ja znam a nakon čitanja većeg dela njegovog opusa savršeno mi je jasno i zašto. Ako je Šopenhauer (koji je inače izvršio i najpresudniji uticaj

Perhaps the pinnacle of Nietzsche and his philosophy, based around the title idea of "the will to power". This motif is whilst recurring, definately important for an intellectual approach to everyday psychology and self-revision. It is not an easy book, and will not make you rejoice, but rather unfold some hidden fears and depressive thoughts all of us hide all our lives, but it is precisely by accepting the nothingness of nihilism that you can achieve the fullness of life.

أفضل ما كتب نيتشه على الإطلاق... البعض سيفضل زرادشت على هذا، لكنني أختار و بدون تردد إرادة القوة.
زرادشت و الشعرية الزائدة، نص ديني أكثر منه نص فلسفي، هذا ليس سببا كافيا لتفضيل هذا على زرادشت، لا أعلم لماذا أقحمت نفسي في هذه المقارنة من الأساس...
المهم، التأصيل للعدمية، التنبأ بموجة العدمية التي ستضرب أروبا، الحديث عن عدة مفاهيم، كانحطاط الدين، انحطاط الأخلاق، تجعل من هذا الكااتاب فريدا جدا، نادرا ما تجد مثله... أنا أفضله على كل ما كتب نيتشه و أؤكد تفضيلي...
و نعم، هذا ليس ريفيو...

This is certainly not light reading. All the wit and fanaticism of Nietzsche is there, but it lacks the tightness and perfection of his other publications. I could not understand much of the material on one reading, but N. seems to be developing his own vocabulary that, once grasped, expose you to all of his genius. For example, while reading his thoughts about physics and chemistry, his logic seemed mad and laughable. With regular re-readings of earlier passages to deepen my understanding of hi ...more

The most purely philosophical and easily digestible summation of Nietzsche's ideas, written by Nietzsche himself. Whether you agree with him or not, well, of course, that's your choice. If you agree with all of his aphorisms, well, I think you should perhaps go on a some sort of inhibitor of some kind, or perhaps become a French postmodernist. I'm very glad Nietzsche's ideas exist and are discussed, even if I believe they are almost all reactionary and critical, rather than creating some solid f ...more

One thing I don't like about this guy is he seems to be constantly agitated, annoyed. What's with all the exclamation marks? This guy has a serious chip on his shoulder. The reader must be a sort of masochist to put up with this angry tone.
Must read though.
Jonathan Hart
Nietzsche's Will to Power was not actually written by Nietzsche himself but compiled by his sister posthumously. She found several of his unpublished and often undeveloped ideas that were written down. She has her own agenda and on several occasions reworded or wrote her own ideas and passed them off as her brothers. The Will to Power is a fantastic work and the only translation actually worth reading is the translation by Walter Kaufmann. Most people completely misunderstand Nietzsche or take o ...more

A perennial favorite for reading. Taken in small meaningful doses one can begin to use the raw materials inside to assemble one's own perspective on Humanity and strive toward ones own project of Power. It is not a book of concrete ideas in some edifice or institution that aspires toward being the system of everything but something far more dangerous; it is a string of potent concepts that with a little inspiration will serve one in the guerrilla campaign of life. Being both incomplete and Nietz

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844–1900) was a German philosopher of the late 19th century who challenged the foundations of Christianity and traditional morality. He was interested in the enhancement of individual and cultural health, and believed in life, creativity, power, and the realities of the world we live in, rather than those situated in a world beyond. Central to his philosophy is the id ...more

“Virtue is under certain circumstances merely an honorable form of stupidity: who could be ill-disposed toward it on that account? And this kind of virtue has not been outlived even today. A kind of sturdy peasant simplicity, which, however, is possible in all classes and can be encountered only with respect and a smile, believes even today that everything is in good hands, namely in the "hands of God"; and when it maintains this proportion with the same modest certainty as it would that two and two make four, we others certainly refrain from contradicting. Why disturb THIS pure foolishness? Why darken it with our worries about man, people, goal, future? And even if we wanted to do it, we could not. They project their own honorable stupidity and goodness into the heart of things (the old God, deus myops, still lives among them!); we others — we read something else into the heart of things: our own enigmatic nature, our contradictions, our deeper, more painful, more mistrustful wisdom.” 36 likes
“It is a self-deception of philosophers and moralists to imagine that they escape decadence by opposing it. That is beyond their will; and, however little they acknowledge it, one later discovers that they were among the most powerful promoters of decadence.” 32 likes
