 About the Book 

Nietzsche called The Gay Science the most personal of all my books. It was here that he 1st proclaimed the death of God--to which a large part of the book is devoted--& his doctrine of the eternal recurrence. Walter Kaufmanns commentary, withMoreNietzsche called The Gay Science the most personal of all my books. It was here that he 1st proclaimed the death of God--to which a large part of the book is devoted--& his doctrine of the eternal recurrence. Walter Kaufmanns commentary, with its many quotations from previously untranslated letters, brings to life Nietzsche as a human being & illuminates his philosophy. The book contains some of Nietzsches most sustained discussions of art & morality, knowledge & truth, the intellectual conscience & the origin of logic. Most of the book was written just before Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the last part five years later, after Beyond Good & Evil. We encounter Zarathustra in these pages as well as many of Nietzsches most interesting philosophical ideas & the largest collection of his own poetry that he himself ever published. Kaufmanns English versions of Nietzsche represent one of the major translation enterprises of our time. Hes the 1st philosopher to have translated Nietzsches major works. Never before has a single translator given us so much of Nietzsche.
