    For whom am I writing this review? If Nietzsche were by my side I suspect he would want me to start with the following uote from Ecce Homo To you the bold venturers and adventurers and whoever has embarked with cunning sails upon dreadful seas to you who are intoxicated with riddles who take pleasure in twilight whose soul is lured with flutes to every treacherous abyss If you are in fact intoxicated with riddles take pleasure in twilight and your soul is lured with flutes to every treacherous abyss note Nietzsche says `every' treacherous abyss not `some' or `most' then this book is for youWe all know there is a time of transition hovering about age nineteen when the emotions of sensitive souls are heightened and experience is intensified intensified to such a point that even thoughts and concepts have a highly charged emotional tone; one's life deepens exaggerates strengthens amplifies ignites and one borders on becoming an inflamed madman even if the madness is only known internally This time of diseuilibrium and hormonal topsy turvy ordinarily settles down into the next phase of life early adulthood where the soul pursues a specialized field of study and then earnestly begins a profession or careerBut for Nietzsche this transitional phase didn't stop; uite the contrary rather than settling into any conventional groove the gap of spiritual and artistic diseuilibrium grew progressively wider over the years and was eons away from any semblance of `civilized' balance Additionally to add fuel to the emotional and philosophical fire Nietzsche was not only sensitive but hyper sensitive to music and the arts and had extraordinary linguistic and literary abilities Thus we are well to remember all of this when we read in Ecce Homo Philosophy as I have hitherto understood and lived it is a voluntary living in ice and high mountains a seeking after everything strange and uestionable in existence all that has hitherto been excommunicated by moralityAfter an impassioned forward and two intoxicatingly stunning chapters Why I Am So Wise' and Why I Am So Clever each line of these chapters deserve an underline and is worthy of committing to memory we come to the chapter Why I Write Such Good Books and read Ultimately no one can extract from things books included than he already knows What one has no access to through experience one has no ear for So how can one `understand' Nietzsche when living a conventional life since living according to convention is itself a life of compromise that is not living with full passion soaked intensity but life as humdrum routine? This is a uestion any aspiring reader of Nietzsche must askA self portrait of Egon Schiele appears on the cover of this Penguin edition which is most appropriate since this artist courageously and without compromise created a deeply personal expressive style of art causing much controversy in his brief life he died at 28 Here are a few of the artist's uotes I am so rich I must give myself away To restrict the artist is a crime It is to restrict germinating life Art is not modern Art is primordially eternalBy his commitment to living with intense zeal in his art and his life Egon Schiele climbed the Nietzschean high mountains cleanly and fully This is what it takes What commitment are you making to live with passion and intensity in your life? If you have not been deeply moved by art and music and have not transformed yourself again and again what chance do you think you stand in understanding Nietzsche? Perhaps it would be better for you to go on the academic head trip read Kant and uine and Rorty and then write papers with all the properly formatted footnotesNietzsche devotes a short chapter to each of his books and then ends with a chapter entitled Why I Am A Destiny Since this review is of Nietzsche's autobiography Nietzsche gets the last word but being Nietzsche the last word is three uotes Here they are From the chapter The Birth of Tragedy `Rationality' at any price as dangerous as a force undermining life From the chapter Twilight of the Idols If you want to get a uick idea of how everything was upsidedown before me make a start with this writing That which is called idol on the titlepage is uite simply that which has hitherto been called truth From the chapter Why I am a Destiny The concept `sin' invented together with the instrument of torture which goes with it the concept of `free will' so as to confuse the instincts so as to make mistrust of the instincts into second nature

    Not really like a traditional autobiography yet very intriguing; the book is satirical Nietzsche's belief in his own greatness lies in the fact that he has understood the condition of human race unlike any otherTraits of existentialist nihilism could be found in the book as Nietzsche believes that there in no inherent meaning in one's life rather one's compelled to invent meaning of one's life and then live life accordingly

    It is certainly hard to review the last book of the greatest man ever lived Ecce Homo is Nietzsche’s interpretation of his works shortly before his madness The book has divided into 15 small chapters with stunning names starting with ‘why I am so wise’ and ending with ‘why I am a Destiny’ There is no doubt in Nietzsche’s greatness; however he could be viewed as arrogant and self centered by some readers who are not realized that all he did was to emphasize in his extraordinary finding of Human His prescription of a great man concluded in a simple formula called Amor Fati “My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati that one wants nothing to be other than it is not in the future not in the past not in all eternity” He simply wanted the human to have “love of fait” in everything that happens to them including suffering and loss as good “As good” is necessary to one’s life and existence whether they like it or not To Nietzsche fresh air healthy eating no alcohol and nature are human life necessities He felt responsible to get his genius thoughts and remedy for human across in the cost of losing his mind He believed that no one would be interested in his book or any other books if they have already knows “Ultimately no one can extract from things books included than he already knows What one has no access to through experience on has no ear for” With the condition that Nietzsche had and the amount of pain and suffering he probably would have a vivid idea of his short life and what he may have to go through so he decided to put together one of his best and greatest work in hope to reach the next generations' attention in becoming a great human Nietzsche believed to be insane believed to be different and yet to be the greatest philosopher of all time“He who knows how to breathe the air of my writings knows that it is an air of the heights a robust air One has to be made for it otherwise there is no small danger one will catch cold The ice is near the solitude is terrible – but how peacefully all things lie in the light How freely one breathes How much one feels beneath one – philosophy as I have hitherto understood and lived it is a voluntary living in ice and high mountains”

    I was once asked if I could meet and have a conversation with one writerpoetphilosopher of any era dead or alive whom would I choose? The answer was and always has been Nietzsche I would sit down and have a hell of a talk with the guy although I'm sure we would end up with our hands on each other's necksI remember the first time I read something of his it was Antichrist 10 odd years ago and my mind was blown Thus Spoke Zarathustra is perhaps my favorite book ever and I go back to it from time to time when I need a kick in the ass My point is I always feel a closeness to Nietzsche Every time I open one of his books it's like we're sitting in a small cafe round metallic tables and all just the two of us and I'm leaning close so I can suck in as much of his brilliance as I can I can't tell if he enjoys my company but I sure as hell enjoy hisAnd so it was that I opened Ecce Homo and let him talk to me about himself his views his books and how come he's so fucking brilliant So much self importance only from Nietzsche I can take I can't say that I fully grasped his points as I'd have to be an übermensch to do so but as always I felt the same comfort that by the time we finish I'll have a tiny bit wisdom than I did before even if it's only in theory Another utterly enlightening book and one proof that Nietzsche was way ahead of his time and all times as a matter of fact

    I was a very serious student during the last two years at Grinnell College Senior year had a pattern of working in the library all day going to the work study job at its Pub Club at night heading back to the Vegetarian Coop after cleaning up the bar to study in until too weary to continue It was then that I seriously read Goethe's Faust most of Nietzsche and of course a lot of CG Jung particularly his alchemical writingsUntil the very end of senior year I had no girlfriend Indeed I hadn't had a girlfriend for a while but I'd gotten over obsessing about it by the end of the second year I was no longer a virgin no longer worried that I was ever to be alone Study was pretty much all absorbing Social life was taken care of by bartending and by living in a commune I didn't have to seek itThen one night at work I was introduced to Mindy by a mutual friend What was special about her was that she was going to study that summer at the Jung Institut in Zurich the center of world analytical psychology I was still deeply immersed in the field and uite impressed This news and some conversation with her about it got me very interested in Mindy now transformed into desire's idealOf course this was crazy and I knew it I was obsessed with her after one meeting in a group lasting no than a couple of hours Further she'd given no indication of being attracted to me Conseuently I resolved to let the infatuation have free reign but tell no one of it Instead I'd use the power towards the purposes of self transformation making of myself the alchemical krater hoping to change common sexuality into something As a part of this discipline I refrained from masturbationOf course I saw Mindy and spoke to her at every opportunity There weren't that many so deep was my cover but the few occasions for further conversation stoked the fires of passion uite excruciatingly I thought of Mindy all the time always reminding myself that the object of desire was not this college girl but what she representedAll things on earth but as symbols are sentThen one night when everyone in Vegie House had gone to some campus concert and I'd gone to bed early I awakened feeling odd like there was something in my room I got up turned on the miserable fluorescent on the desk sat down Out of the corner of my eyes I saw things dark things scuttle in the corners out from the radiator under the bed It's happening I thought afraid and excited as the dark forms began to take to the air gain form swoop about I could feel the rush from their wings like bats Indeed as they gained form and became clearly visible now in the center of vision they looked like crosses between bats and owls the size of the latter fat with humanoid faces This was rather too much I was fully awake now and for the first time in a normal state of consciousness having vivid hallucinations The beings and there were lots of them moving very uickly did not seem benign Indeed they seemed the opposite Scared I turned on the overhead light using the switch beside the door and headed out into the hallway shutting my room turning on all the lights Then realizing they weren't following though I could hear them back there in the room I settled down in the brightest of all the rooms in the house the kitchen and sat there slowly calming until my coop mates started filtering back from the concertNietzsche who had his own issues with love and his own ambitions that went beyond the merely human wrote Ecce Homo shortly before his psychotic break Although Kaufmann and others have entertained the speculation that he may have gone mad through some physical agency such as tertiary syphilis my little experience suggests that one may actually be able to think oneself to psychosisIn any case my dream of reason having led to nightmare I retreated from the fulness of ambition stopped seeking chance encounters with Mindy started masturbating again and shared this story with a friend or two The weirdness ended not to be repeated By year's end I even had entered into a romantic relationship with a woman

    Friedrich Nietzsche 1844 1900 began the composition of this most unusual book on his 44th birthday October 15 1888 the last birthday before he believed himself to be the King of Italy then Napoleon then God ultimately sliding into the final catatonic phase in which he passed the remaining 11 years of life Ecce Homo Behold the Man his last book has as subtitle Wie man wird was man ist How one becomes what one is It is a final summary of the significance of Nietzsche the prophet written by himself shortly before his ascension Here are some of the Chapter headingsWhy I Am So WiseWhy I Am So CleverWhy I Write Such Good BooksWhy I Am FateSo yes one has gone well past megalomaniaAfter his many early and mid period critical texts and the mid period and late prophetic books in which he never revealed all of the visionsemotions he confided to his notebooks he knew he was due to write a systematic presentationjustification of his new ideasvisionshallucinations In his letters to friends and in his notebooks he made plans for a 4 volume summa but he knew that even if he had had the time he was not up to the task He was exhausted and ill in body and mind and systematic thought was never his strength But I also suspect that he knew there was no there there; that is to say he was riveted primarily by visions and emotions not by thoughts and ideas He expressed the visions and emotions beautifully in his prose poems and poetry but when he went to find ideas and arguments they were inchoate at least during his last few years of intelligent life In the letters he wrote in Bologna during his last weeks of relative sanity to the two remaining contacts he maintained he was ebullient at a new peak above all his previous manic phases everything was so perfect then his health the weather the music the food And one last time he wrote a book Ecce Homo in one go in approximately two weeks he did this several times during the last 3 years of his or less sane life Though he couldn't write his summa he could write about his favorite topic the global significance of his role and his workThese are the first lines of the ForewordIn Voraussicht dass ich über Kurzem mit der schwersten Forderung an die Menschheit herantreten muss die je an sie gestellt wurde scheint es mir unerlässlich zu sagen wer ich binIn anticipation that I soon will have to approach Mankind with the weightiest challenge ever posed to it it seems to me indispensable to say who I amUp until this point of his life the disparity between the enormity of his task and the superficiality of his fellow human beings had as conseuence that nearly no one had taken notice of him outside of a few academic philologists who had derided him and the Wagnerians who had seen him as a useful tool and none of these had taken notice of his actual task as he saw it So it was necessary that Mankind be told who he was in order that it finally take notice of his work This was clearly not an undertaking with a great promise of success and he actually did stop the production of the book at an advanced stage though the reasons he gave for this act to various persons were all contradictory But it was published later even though his sister and mother consigned to the flames the copy of the manuscript he had sent to themIn this book one can clearly see his state of mind shortly before he became king emperor godWer die Luft meiner Schriften zu athmen weiss weiss dass es eine Luft der Höhe ist eine starke Luft Man muss für sie geschaffen sein sonst ist die Gefahr keine kleine sich in ihr zu erkälten Das Eis ist nahe die Einsamkeit ist ungeheuer—aber wie ruhig alle Dinge im Lichte liegen wie frei man athmet wie Viel man unter sich fühltWho knows to breath the air of my texts knows that it is the air of the heights a strong air One must be made for it otherwise the danger is not small to become ill in its cold The ice is close the loneliness enormous but how uietly all things lie in the light How freely one breathes How much one feels is beneath oneUmwertung aller Werte das ist meine Formel für einen Akt höchster Selbstbesinnung der Menschheit der in mir Fleisch und Genie geworden istTransvaluation of all values that is my formula for an act of highest self awareness for Mankind which has become flesh and genius in meIch bin bei weitem der furchtbarste Mensch den es bisher gegeben hat; dies schliesst nicht aus dass ich der wohlthätigste sein werde Ich kenne die Lust am Vernichten in einem Grade die meiner Kraft zum Vernichten gemäss ist—in Beidem gehorche ich meiner dionysischen Natur welche das Neinthun nicht vom Jasagen zu trennen weiss I am by far the most fearsome man who has ever existed; this does not exclude that I will be the most charitable I know the desire to destroy to a degree which is uite suitable to my power to destroy in both I obey my Dionysian nature which cannot separate no doing from yes sayingAlong with these and similar sayings one also finds instruction on when and how strong one should take one's tea coffee only darkens the mind as well as assurances that all women love himThis book left me saddened for many reasons not least of which is the sight of a human being disappearing down a rat hole Moreover it reminds me that he never delivered on his dark promises and the great transvaluation was never made What seems to remain of Nietzsche's philosophical work at least for me is the criticism of mid nineteenth century thought and life of which a portion was a profound cynicism with respect to knowledge and values Underneath that however there was a gaping nihilism which it appears to me he tried to fill up with his visionshallucinations His overman his Zarathustra his transvaluation his doctrine of eternal return are all emperors without clothes Either they remained in his unpublished notes or were little than announced with a trumpet fanfare without any real follow up On the other hand his critical works contain the seeds of much of 20th Century thought and as a prose stylist and even towards the end as a poet Nietzsche has few euals in the German languageHow can it be that everyone from the far right to the far left has found what they wanted to find in Nietzsche's writings? One reason presumably is that in the thousands of pages of notebooks letters and books he produced many ideas were tried out; he did not care the least about contradicting himself even in print For in its core the part he really cared about his thoughtsfeelings were very consistent No to present day society and thought; Yes to Nietzsche and his visions So there is grist for almost every mill in his pages even without the deliberate falsification of his views carried out by the Nazis with his sister's eager collaboration Another reason is that his multifaceted criticism of mid 19th century German society could serve as a starting point for the revolutionaries both on the left and the right who wanted to replace it with their own dreams After dissolving it in Nietzsche's acid the way was clear for a new start However as I have been learning through other readings of 19th century authors many of the criticisms credited to Nietzsche were anticipated in print well before Nietzsche's books were written More on this elsewhere Rating

    Nietzsche struck me like a bolt from the blue in my transition to adulthood There was one darkly heroic phrase from The Birth of Tragedy that stuck ein Pessimismus der Stärke a pessimism that springs from power Now that I’m rediscovering Nietzsche this dichotomy has lost nothing of its relevance And I admire no I love this man for having been able to keep these opposing forces in balance at least for a while In my younger years I didn’t read Ecce Homo partly because the book has such a dismal reputation Supposedly the fingerprints of the imminent breakdown are scattered all over these pages Perhaps they are The shrill voice of an almost absurdly pugilistic Nietzsche is unmistakably there But in my experience this is not the key in which this book has been written I’ve read it as a short but pure adagio a backward glance suffused with elation and gratitude The author of Ecce Homo is the man whom the Genoese referred to as ‚il piccolo santo’ ‚the little saint’ For me Nietzsche is a bodhisattva a powerful and fragile human being on the threshold of enlightenment This intense spiritual energy condensed itself in his ‚amor fati’ this most radical and dry eyed commitment to life „I fail to remember ever having made an effort — no trace of struggle is detectable in my life I am the opposite of a heroic nature To ‚want’ something to ‚strive’ for something to have an ‚end’ a ‚desire’ in mind — I know none of this from my experience Even at this moment I look out upon my future — a broad future — as upon a smooth sea no desire ripples upon it Not in the least do I want anything to be different from what it is; I myself do not want to be any differentBut thus I have always lived My formula for human greatness is amor fati that one wants nothing to be different not in the future not in the past not for all eternity Not only to endure what is necessary still less to conceal it — all idealism is falseness in the face of necessity — but to love it ” I am happy with my belated discovery of this testament


  8. Trevor Trevor says:

    I can't pretend to like Nietzsche I know it is trendy to see him as not nearly as reactionary or as right wing as he might have been considered in the past when he was viewed as one of the philosophical ancestors of the Nazis and it is true that is unfair but all the same he is pretty reactionaryI could never read his stuff as if it was just about psychology I could not avoid the 'most men are sheep and need to be lead' ideas and see these as a call for the superman to have the will to power to rule over the sheep I do understand that he is saying that slave mentality places pointless limits on our achievements and that it is only in allowing ourselves to transcend those limitations that we have any hope of living a life worth living I also understand that in a world where God is dead that we are responsible for our lives and our morality and that responsibility is paramount Yes all very interesting But there is a tonal thing with Nietzsche I can never get beyond I mean some of the chapters in this book are called Why I am a destiny Why I am so clever Why I write such wonderful books Why you need a slap Here is the man I still don't like him I still think he is too much of an individualist and there is a stench of far right politics off his writing I find it virtually impossible to get beyond If you haven't read Nietzsche Twilight of the Idols is a better place to start than hereHe is also seriously up himself in that book but this is in a class of its own


  9. John John says:

    Well this is one of those difficult books to review Nietzche's extensive influence on contemporary thought is certainly without uestion This book is itself uite a funny read on its satirical level However it exaggerates for effect Nietzsche's belief in his own greatness so while it may be technically overstated in the book Nietzsche believes the underlying point that he has understood the misdirection of the human race unlike any who have ever been created Where 2000 years of human beings have been wrong only he has risen above the masses to see the truthThe ways in which Nietzsche expresses this are often entertaining to take a book of mine into his hands is one of the rarest distinctions anyone can confer upon himself but ultimately pitiable due to the fundamental misunderstandings at the heart of his thought Nietzsche sets himself up as a kind of anti Gnostic dismissive of religion for its emphasis on the soul yet swinging the pendulum to the other side to emphasize the psychologicalNietzsche believes in creating one's reality rather than simply following after the conditions set by others It seems the utmost critiue of this idea is his own frustration at people's unwillingness to change their taste to be accepting of his brilliance


  10. Jack Jack says:

    Proust was proving too delicately social for my starved and alienated uarantined body so I turned to hissing and conspiratorial Nietzsche in all his egotism to delve into the ugliness and wonder of the self proudly alienated and hopefully willing to walk amongst others again with a head held higher when the time comes
