Read online The Gay Science.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Gay Science Nietzsche called The Gay Science the most personal of all my books It was here that he first proclaimed the death of God to which a large part of the book is devoted and his doctrine of the eternal recurrence .

Walter Kaufmann s commentary with its many quotations from previously untranslated letters brings to life Nietzsche as a human being and illuminates his philosophy The book contains some of Nietzsche s most sustained discussions of art and morality knowledge and truth the intellectual conscience and the origin of logic .

Most of the book was written just before Thus Spoke Zarathustra the last part five years later after Beyond Good and Evil We encounter Zarathustra in these pages as well as many of Nietzsche s most interesting philosophical ideas and the largest collection of his own poetry that he himself ever published .

Walter Kaufmann s English versions of Nietzsche represent one of the major translation enterprises of our time He is the first philosopher to have translated Nietzsche s major works and never before has a single translator given us so much of Nietzsche by Friedrich Nietzsche, Walter Kaufmann
