Comments Friedrich Nietzsche: A Philosophical Biography

  • John

    I am considering the possibility of writing an "intellectual biography" of Margaret Fuller. A rather voluminous body of biographical narratives of MF's life appears to exist, and I've read at least five books that recount the sequence of events in Fuller's life as an interested contemporary might have observed and recorded them. Then there is Murray's examination of the emotional/psychological domains of MF's inner life. And of course, there exists shelf upon shelf of books that critics have pro [...]


  • Greg

    This book arrived in the mail today. So far, I'm through the first half of the second chapter. I think I'll enjoy reading it a great deal.It's an intellectual biography of Nietzsche, and it seems to me to be really well-put-together. It includes thirty photographs of persons and places important in Nietzsche's life, as well as an accompanying website where Nietzsche's own musical compositions can be heard. Plus, it's a big book with fairly small type and has a nice, hard cover. I feel so much mo [...]


  • Colm Gillis

    An exhaustive biography on one of the most controversial thinkers of the 19th century. Young demonstrates an encyclopaedic knowledge of Nietzsche's life and work and he also engages in some pressing analysis of the German thinker. He avoids either side of the partisanship surrounding Nietzsche. He neither condemns Nietzsche nor does he eulogise over him. He presents in very bald terms Nietzsche's thought and also his unusual lifestyle. His great works were explored and presented in a short, but [...]

    Great. Biographies bore me, but this was exciting since it followed Nietzsche through his life identifying the origins of his ideas and tracing their development. This also explained much to me about his philosophy that I didn't previously understand, especially since I haven't read all of his books.


  • Ian Stewart

    It took me four months to read and along the way I dipped into much of Nietzsche’s early writing as I went along, and read up on 19th century Germany, while listening to Wagner and Beethoven to get a feel for the times. It was a journey. Nietzsche was a strange, tortured, and passionate man. I’m glad to have learned more about him and his thinking. Much of that thinking is repellent but then some of it is heroic and inspiring. Some of it touched by madness. This bio was an incredible, entert [...]


  • Chris

    A very well put-together intellectual biography. I found myself skimming parts of the philosophical exegesis in favor of following Nietzsche's wild life, but those parts came together very nicely in the last arguments against misrepresentations of his philosophy.


  • Don Ringelestein

    A judicious mix of biography and philosophy, Juilan's book does a very nice job summarizing and developing the main strands of Nietzsche's thinking. He does well to also downplay the significance of the Nachlass, and it's problematic child, the notion of Will to Power. In the end, a good read and valuable tool.


  • Douglas

    This excellent book gives the modern reader deeper insight into and understanding of the unusual life of this legendary and often misunderstood philosopher. I commend this book to all who wish to know what Nietzsche really meant when he wrote that "God is dead" and about "free spirits" and the existence of "superman."


  • Frederic

    Incredibly dense,well-researched and very readable although it took me more than a month to read and I gave only a cursory glance to all the Notesbut I had to return it to the libraryworth reading and worth owning for future reference


  • Miha Mazzini

    ‘A Philosophical Biography’, it says on the cover and it delivers. Not just the life of Nietzsche but analysis of his works too. Author says his opinions clearly, but I didn’t feel it like interference. A lot to read; take it on the holiday.


  • Samson Blackwell

    I got to page 47. Sorry Young (and Nietzsche), too many other things going on right now to focus on a tome this dense.


  • Kate

    I think I just wasn't intellectually adequate to this, but I was enjoying it before I abandoned ship.
