Human, All Too Human (1878) marks the point where
Nietzsche abandons German romanticism for the French
Enlightenment. At a moment of crisis in his life (no longer a
friend of Richard Wagner, forced to leave academic life
through ill health), he sets out his views in a scintillating and
bewildering series of aphorisms which contain the seeds of his
later philosophy (e.g. the will to power, the need to transcend
conventional Christian morality). The result is one of the
cornerstones of his life's work. It well deserves its subtitle 'A
Book for Free Spirits', and its original dedication to Voltaire,
whose project of radical enlightenment here finds a new
Beyond Good and Evil (1886) is a scathing and powerful critique
of philosophy, religion and science. Here Nietzsche presents us
with problems and challenges that are as troubling as they are
inspiring, while at the same time outlining the virtues, ideas,

future. Relentless, energetic, tirelessly probing, he both
determines that philosophy's agenda and is himself the
embodiment of the type of thought he wants to foster.
