New to Penguin Classics, The Will to Power includes some of Nietzsche's most important thoughts on nihilism, metaphysics and the future of Europe.
'This world is the will to power - and nothing besides! And even you yourselves are this will to power - and nothing besides!'
One of the great minds of modernity, Friedrich Nietzsche smashed through the beliefs of his age. These writings, which did much to establish his reputation as a philosopher, offer some of his most powerful and troubling thoughts: on how the values of a new, aggressive elite will save a nihilistic, mediocre Europe, and, most famously, on the 'will to power' - ideas that were seized upon and twisted by later readers. Taken from Nietzsche's unpublished notebooks and assembled by his sister after his death, The Will to Power now appears in a clear, fluent new translation, with previous errors corrected in light of the original manuscripts.
