Read full description of the books On Truth and Untruth: Selected Writings:“We continue to live within the intellectual shadow cast by Nietzsche.” —New York Times Book Review
Best known for his seminal works on religion, morality, existentialism, and contemporary culture, such as The Birth of Tragedy and Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Nietzsche focuses his penetrating insight on assessing the nature of truth in this concise and highly readable collection that charts the great philosopher's writings on truth. Joining Heidegger’s Basic Writings, The Essential Schopenhauer, and other books in the Harper Perennial Modern Thought series, On Truth and Untruth offers unprecedented access to “the most influential of the great philosophers” (New Yorker).
Read information about the authorFriedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844–1900) is 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 idea of “life-affirmation,” which involves an honest questioning of all doctrines that drain life's expansive energies, however socially prevalent those views might be. Often referred to as one of the first existentialist philosophers along with Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855), Nietzsche's revitalizing philosophy has inspired leading figures in all walks of cultural life, including dancers, poets, novelists, painters, psychologists, philosophers, sociologists and social revolutionaries.
