New to Penguin Classics, The Will to Power includes some of Nietzsche's most important thoughts on nihilism, metaphysics and the future of Europe.
Friedrich Nietzsche (Author) was born near Leipzig in 1844.
When he was only twenty-four he was appointed to the chair of
classical philology at Basel University. Works published in the
1880s include The Gay Science, Thus Spoke
Zarathustra,Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of

condition of mental and physical paralysis. Works published after
his death in 1900 includeWill to Power, based on his
notebooks, and Ecce Homo, his autobiography.
