“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
“Without music, life would be a mistake.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche (Twilight of the Idols, Or, How to Philosophize With the Hammer)
Twilight of the Idols. Nietzsche’s own unabashed appraisal of the last work intended to serve as a short introduction to the whole of his philosophy, and the most synoptic of all his books, bristles with a register of vocabulary derived from physiology, pathology, symptomatalogy and medicine. This new translation is supplemented by an introduction and extensive notes, which provide close analysis of a highly condensed work.
