Man Alone with Himself Paperback
Part of the Penguin Great Ideas series
Friedrich Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary thinkers in Western philosophy.
Here he sets out his subversive views in a series of aphorisms on subjects ranging from art to arrogance, boredom to passion, science to vanity, rejecting conventional notions of morality to celebrate the individual's 'will to power'.
Throughout history, some books have changed the world.
They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other.
They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution.
They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted.
They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Review by TakeItOrLeaveIt
some books land in the laps and eager eyes of their readers in the most opportune and ideal time in that reader's life. Perched above a mountain, glancing at the sunset, the ocean, the trees, and later the moon, reading Nietzsche's 'Man Alone With Himself' was an experience i'll never forget, not to mention at times it felt like I was reading my own personal bible. Reach out and touch...Nietzsche. Am I this 'future philosopher' FN speaks of? I won't go that far, but I will suggest everyone and everything read this absolute classic take on celebrating the spirit of the individual and where FN continues his legacy of encouraging his reader's to detach from the social constructs and norms of a boring dogmatic world.
