In fact as far as I am certain, I have only read one chapter, that quite recently: chapter 6, The Discovery of the Will to Power.

I will admit that I dont know if Kaufmann has been superseded by someone else in the Nietzsche scholarship field over the last couple decades. This book first appeared in , so its not recent by any means. But with three other I have not read this book completely. The fourth edition is still in print.

The first quote is from the publisher presumably as it appears on Amazom no less. This classic is the benchmark against which all modern books about Nietzsche are measured. When Walter Kaufmann wrote it in the immediate aftermath of World War II, most scholars outside Germany viewed Nietzsche as part madman, part proto-Nazi, and almost wholly unphilosophical. Kaufmann rehabilitated Nietzsche nearly single-handedly, presenting his works as one of the great achievements of Western philosophy. Responding to the powerful myths and countermyths that had sprung up around Nietzsche, Kaufmann offered a patient, evenhanded account of his life and works, and of the uses and abuses to which subsequent generations had put his ideas.

He also presented Nietzsche as a pioneer of modern psychology and argued that a key to understanding his overall philosophy is to see it as a reaction against Christianity. And more publicity, some of the blurbs from the back cover chosen to impress Goodreaders. Indispensable for anyone concerned with Nietzsche. The publisher, by the way, is Princeton U. Nietzsche, more than any other philosopher of the past hundred years, represents a major historical event.

His ideas are of concern not only to the members of one nation or community, nor alone to philosophers, but to men everywhere, and they have had repercussions in recent history and literature as well as in psychology and religious thought.

Without acceding to his philosophy, one may respect his overruling passion for intellectual integrity; and his protestant perspectives are often suggestive and fruitful even when they are unacceptable.

And what about the reviewer? These are the only places Kaufmann finds the phrase up to and including Zarathustra. He never again enjoyed a prolonged period of mental stability. In his sister took control of his remaining works and their publication. This publication information is presented and explained more fully on pages of the reviewed book. But Kaufmann values Nietzsche very highly, and obviously thinks he is one of the great thinkers of nineteenth century philosophy.

For anyone with a deep interest in Nietzsche I would recommend this book very highly.
