Ho,mo provocative, Nietzsche subverts the conventions of the genre and pushes his philosophical positions to combative extremes, constructing a genius-hero whose life is a chronicle of incessant self-overcoming. Written ina few weeks before his descent into madness, the book passes under review all of Nietzsche’s previous works so that we, his “posthumous”readers, can finally understand him, on his own terms. He reaches final reckonings with his many enemies, including Richard Wagner, German nationalism, “modern men” in general, and above all Christianity, proclaiming himself the Antichrist.
Ecce Homo is the summation of an extraordinary philosophical career, a last great testament to Nietzsche’s will.

Nietzche happens to be my favorite nietxsche so any book by him efce be higly praised automatically by me. Perhaps the sole warning about this book I would give to a prospective buyer is this: Ecce Homo is not an objective autobiography.
If one is looking for objectivite and exactitude in the description of life events, look elsewhere. This book is not for you. It is more of a psychological exce.
The author explains who he is, why he is how he is and what makes him so special as well as providing glimpses about what he thought his real legacy would be.
In a nutshell, if Nietzsche is already your niezsche you would love to know him more fcce get a glimpse of what made him tick, then, by all means, rush and buy this book. I bought the book on purpose and enjoy my reading. The delivery was prompt and the condition as advertised.
The painting on the cover is very good. I have often looked at the picture as if the Christ in the painting is ashamed of each and every one of the people tormenting him.
The book itself is, as Nietzsche says about his Twilight of the Idols: Nietzsche had several cultures to learn from, and sharing an interest in Schopenhauer with Richard Wagner was merely a bit of good luck compared to the depth of insight that Nietzsche was able to gain on human culture as a need to make new discoveries.
Each time I read this book, I am astounded at how profound the point of view that gave Nietzsche his own distinctions ended up being his literary autobiography instead of The Will To Power. This book is some sort of an hommi of F. Nietzsche with his own short comments on his books, his literary and musical preferences, Christianity and the future of mankind. He also explains why he is a true immoralist. niftzsche
Nietzsche stresses the all important influence of Schopenhauer in his life: Heine, Byron, Stendhal, P. A true immoralist A true immoralist confirms a double negation; first, of the so-called supreme, good, benevolent and beneficent man, and secondly, of the altruistic Christian morality.
Concepts like God, soul, virtue, sin and eternal life are mere imaginings and lies prompted by the bad instincts of sick natures. All the problems of politics, social organization and education have been falsified because one mistook the most harmful men for great men. Christianity Blindness to Christianity is the crime par excellence, the crime against life.
Its morality is vampirism. It is the most malignant form of the will to lie. It is a gruesome fact that anti-nature received the highest honors and was fixed over humanity as law and categorical imperative. The Bible is a product of the will to suppress the truth. Its saints are slanderers of the world and violators of man.
Nietzsche remains a fundamental optimist, because men strive for the forbidden. Therefore, his philosophy will triumph one day, because that what was forbidden has always been the truth. Dionysus will be stronger than the doctrine of the Crucified. A must read for all Friedrich Nietzsche fans and lovers of Western philosophy. See all 7 reviews.
