Basic Writings of Nietzsche (Modern Library Classics)
Nietzsche is brilliant!
Much of Nietzsche's brilliance can be found within this one book. His influnce on philosophy is unmistakeable. His genius is nearly unmatch and is displayed with class throughout this book. This book is a must-have for anyone studying, or a fan of Nietzsche
In Matto's Realm: A Sergeant Studer Mystery (Sergeant Studer Mystery S.)
Bitter Lemon Press
dark period piece police procedural
In the late 1920s in Bern, Dr. Ernst Laduner specifically asks to see Detective Sergeant Jakob Studer as they met in Vienna though the cop does not remember the psychiatrist. Laduner informs Studer that a patient Peter Pieterlen, a child murderer, escaped from the Randlingen Psychiatric Clinic; Studer concludes the psychiatrist is performing a classic CYA especially since another patient ...
The Portable Nietzsche (Portable Library)
God is dead, the `█bermensch' should live
This collection contains all Nietzsche's most important texts, except `Beyond Good and Evil'. In those texts, Nietzsche shouts, exhorts, explains or translates via metaphors, poems, pastiches, maxims and aphorisms in a manic delirious style his vision on life, man and woman, good and evil, freedom, `natural' laws and abject institutions (State and Church). Extreme disappointment in mankind ...
A very good read; good for analysis.
I initially bought the book simply out of interest of Nietzsche himself and found that the book can be used as a tool to help analyze Christianity and its influences much more deeply than it has been within the book. The one thing that is disappointing is that Nietzsche writes with a tone that seems to enforce the typical "angry atheist" stereotype that many Christians love to cling to (of ...
Thus Spake Zarathustra
Nietzches' most important work, isn't an easy read. Yet for anyone interested in understanding the basis of his thought and is hoping to find one book that will say it all- this is it.
Beyond Good and Evil
I own other books of Nietzsche, love his books and I recommend to read "Thus Spoke Zarathustra"
The Fire: The Bombing of Germany, 1940-1945
Columbia University Press
First history of WW 2 published in the US and its a translation
To people familiar with histories in general and German history in particular, this book is a return to the gold standard of historiography: Tell it as it really was. Most so-called histories are non-scientific, prejudiced this way or that and a waste of good paper. The Fire is actual history, not bearing the relationship to reality that "HOUSE" (TV Doctor drama) plays to real medicine, ...
Caspar David Friedrich
Thames & Hudson
Werner Hofmann's new monograph on Caspar David Friedrich benefits from superb colour reproductions as well as Hofmann's own discursive brilliance. Selections from Friedrich's letters are a neat fit, bowing to the idea that his transcendental painting ultimately eludes scholarly discourse. This book lands with authority, passion, and a keen sense of the vistas of silence that Friedrich ...
Friedrich (Puffin Books)
Hans Peter Richter
A Very Moving Book
This is a very moving stoty about Friedrich a young Jewish boy that lived during the Holicost as told through the eyes of his German best friend. I think it is a very good story for people to read because it teaches them how bad raceism has become. There is no difference between a Jew and a German. This is also a good book because it shows how Jews really were treated during World War II, and ...
Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for Everyone and No One (Penguin Classics)
One of the most challenging works I have ever read
Thus Spoke Zarathustra (originally Also Sprach Zarathustra) is considered by some (myself included) to have been the crowning work of the nineteenth century German philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900). Unlike most modern philosophical works, Zarathustra's format harkens back to the Bible and to the ancient Greek works such as Plato's dialogues. In it, Zarathustra wanders the ...
University Of Chicago Press
Great story translated well into contemporary film.
The fact is I was interested in this book because of the film of the same name starring Jack Nicholson and masterfully directed by Sean Penn. I?d never heard of the author before, and am not a novel reader. Were it not for the film, I?d have never read it. But I regret neither the film nor the novel, which would perhaps be better labeled as a novella. For those with my intent of comparing media, ...
Introduction to the Philosophy of History: With Selections from the Philosophy of Right
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Hackett Publishing Company
A great philosopher on importance of history!
I read this book for a graduate class in history. Hegel's philosophy of history is perhaps the most fully developed philosophical theory of history that attempts to discover meaning or direction in history. Hegel incorporates a deeper historicism into his philosophical theories than his predecessors or successors. According to Hegel, the events whose story is told by political and legal history ...
The Life of Jesus: Critically Examined
David Friedrich Strauss
The Life of Jesus Critically Examined - A Book Review
Book Abstract: Strauss' main thesis denies the historicity of all supernatural elements in the gospels assigning their creation to mythological speculation between the death of Jesus and the writing of the gospels by second-generation believers from a mythological template. Until the Enlightenment, the gospel narratives of the life of Jesus were considered by the majority of Bible scholars to ...
Teaching Communication: Theory, Research, and Methods (Lea's Communication Series)
The field of communication was founded, in part, because of a need to make people better communicators. That meant teaching them how to communicate more effectively, whether it be in public settings or in private. Most of that teaching has happened within the classroom and many professionals have spent their lives instructing others on various aspects of communication. Inside this second edition, the editors have assembled a fully comprehensive ...

The Christian Faith
T. & T. Clark Publishers
A Seminal Work in Modern Theology.
Its no coincidence that Schleiermacher is called the 'father of modern theology.' This classic in systematic theology is indispensible to any theology student tho wants to understand liberal theology. The Christian faith is distinctly Christological in nature. Schleiermacher, because of his Moravian upbringing, has great reverance for Christ (unlike some of the modern theologians who were to ...
The Condition of the Working Class in England (Oxford World's Classics)
Oxford University Press, USA
Fabuous book. Engels wrote this when he was only 24- and what a tour de force. The work is detailed, beautifully observed and elegantly written. Despite the depressing nature of the subject matter, the tone is always possible about a better world beyond the evils of capitalism. Unfortunately 150 years after this masterpiece was written things dont seen to have gotten better under capitalism. ...
The Robbers and Wallenstein (Penguin Classics)
Wallenstein is a Masterpiece
The Wallenstein trilogy is a fascinating work, constructed in an unusual and innovative manner, and marked by unusually powerful language. Wallenstein is a profoundly ambiguous figure. Was he a proto-German nationalist? A seeker of peace and religous moderation? A determined schemer aiming to develop his own Empire? Some combination of all of these? Schiller, who taught history and was the ...
Caspar David Friedrich and the Subject of Landscape: Second Edition
Joseph Leo Koerner
A Portrait of the Invisible
Koerner has written a philosophical masterpiece in the form of an art book. Caspar David Friedrich is one of the most complex and thought-provoking of nineteenth-century artists, whose whose exploration of perception shows up in his most mundane paintings as well as his most grandiose. Koerner shows us how even a painting of something as simple as a bushy thicket in the snow contains many subtle ...
