    2. ‎دوستانِ گرانقدر، اکثریت این اعتقاد را دارند که به یقین حکیمی که شاهکار و مشهورترین اثر جهانیِ خود را به نامِ بزرگترین شخصیتِ تاریخیِ ایران، یعنی «زرتشت»، عنوان دهی (معنون) کرده است، جالبِ توجهِ هر ایرانی میباشد البته من این موضوع را قبول ندارم که ایرانی ها یقیناً به خاطرِ ا [...]


    3. Comment:Nietzsche makes his world, based on Becoming and Creating, in order to replace (Destroy! God help us!) Plato’s world which was based on Being and Knowing. I should really say Plato’s worlds; after all, Modernity and its various Ideologies are also, for Nietzsche, Platonisms that have descended into nihilismThat is the difficulty, ‘Worlds’, even philosophically manufactured worlds, tend to fragment over time. It is exactly as Heidegger somewhere indicated; nihilism is not the dest [...]


    4. I think the most important thing to keep in mind when reading “The Will to Power” is that it is NOT a “book” in the proper sense of the term. It is merely a collection of thoughts and scraps that are extensions of previous thoughts, meditations on works that were being fleshed out at that time, and projections towards future investigations. As Kauffman points out (who, by the way, I became a bit annoyed with throughout this edition with his constant self aggrandizement – despite the fa [...]


    5. این آخرین جملات نیچه در این کتاب هست:و آيا مي دانيد جهان از نظر من چيست؟ آيا آن را در آينه ي خويش به شما نشان خواهم داد؟ اين جهان هيولايي از كارمايه (انرژي) است، بي آغاز و بي انجام، يك انبوه محكم و آهنين از نيرو كه بزرگتر يا كوچكتر نمي شود، كه خود را به مصرف نمي رساند، بلكه تنها خو [...]


    6. It seems to me that the only thing more tragic than the fact that Nietzsche was never able to write the Will to Power, is that this hodgepodge of notes and jottings was mistaken for it. Still I am surprised that so many academics simply accepted all the ludicrous claims that it was his masterpiece. There was Heidegger who, perhaps defensively, suggested ignoring the published works in favor of it. And at an even further extreme was Derrida who thought we really ought to be looking more closely a [...]


    7. مبدئيا أريد أن أصب جام غضبى وكامل سخطى على من نصحنى بقرائته ، ومن ناحية أخرى اريد أن استأثره بالشكر والعرفان فهذا الكتاب ليس للقراءة فقط وإنما كما كتب فى بدايته هو " إنجيل المستقبل " الكتاب لم يبق على قيمة من القيم العليا لدى الإنسان إلا وفندها تفنيدا منهجيا منتقدا إياه من كل ا [...]


    8. The lack of coherent structure in this work which may delight such lovers of disorder who might like to claim poor Fritz as their own is, in sooth, due to the unfortunate fact that Will to Power was not really written by Nietzsche. His sister, who appears to have gotten the short end of the genius stick in the family (and was thus deeply anti-semitic) collected her favorite of her brother's aphorisms which he had never intended to publish. At the time he was laid up in bed, sick and a maniac, so [...]


    9. لنشن الحرب على كل الفرضيات التى على أساسها تم تخيل العالم من إصدارات دار افريقيا الشرق كتاب إرادة القوة للفيلسوف الألمانى فردريك نيتشه بترجمة محمد الناجى .هكذا تلخص المقدمة ما اراده نيتشه والتى اطلق عليها محاولة قلب كل القيم أفكار نيتشه التى ظهر ت فى الكتاب العدمية التى افت [...]


    10. This is not a book, it is set of essays for Friedrich published after his death, which I consider it as a rich text of him. Very accurate and informative essays. It can be used as a reference for the writers. Absolutely deserves five starts as well as the translation was excellent.


    11. “To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill-treatment, indignities—I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not—that one endures.”


    12. Simply a fascinating look into the creative period of one of the most enigmatic and profound minds in German history, Nietzsche's "Will to Power" offers a unique look simply because in contradistiction to his polished published books, this is merely a collection of his most interesting notes arranged topically by editors and published after his death. What is most remarkable about this fact is how so many people could actually mistake this work for a supposed crowning systematic philosophy. Clea [...]


    13. Nietzsche didn't even write this book! Even if he DID do some notes, the whole book was edited by his sister. I don't understand why it is so highly rated. Perhaps the same reason many people hate Friedrich Nietzsche for being Adolf Hitler's favorite philosopher - because they don't know a sh*t about the author. Good job, "readers".


    14. این که کتاب اصلیش نیست کتاب اصلی هزار و خورده ای صفحه داره اگه ترجمه شده وکسی داره می تونه لطفا لینک دانلودشو بفرسته برام؟


    15. I approached The Will to Power with some caution, knowing that it is not a refined and completed work but rather a collection of Nietzsche’s previously-unpublished writings, organized thematically. Readers are justified in wondering just how heavy an editorial hand was exercised upon this work by Friedrich’s tawdry, conniving bitch of a sister, who shared some of his mental instability but none of his intelligence. That being said, there’s not much evidence that the actual content of the w [...]


    16. The most purely philosophical and easily digestible summation of Nietzsche's ideas, written by Nietzsche himself. Whether you agree with him or not, well, of course, that's your choice. If you agree with all of his aphorisms, well, I think you should perhaps go on a some sort of inhibitor of some kind, or perhaps become a French postmodernist. I'm very glad Nietzsche's ideas exist and are discussed, even if I believe they are almost all reactionary and critical, rather than creating some solid f [...]


    17. The editor Walter Kaufman says that everything a reader can understand about Nietzsche's philosophy is available from his completed books. The Will to Power is a compilation of notes from Nietzsche's manuscripts, organized by a publisher, that were either included in his published books or were notes of work in progress or work planned. The book still adds fascinating insight into Nietzsche's way of recording and dwelling on his ideas, and lends emphasis to one of his central concerns: human nat [...]


    18. It's very interesting to compare this translation with the one my mother owns. This is newer than hers and it's based on more recent scholarship and a more complete original version. This translation negates much of the interference of Nietzsche's sister and her husband (who edited and reorganized his work to push their own antisemitic beliefs). The sense of Nietzsche's meaning and values in this newer version is profoundly different - and sometimes contradictory - to the translation that was st [...]


    19. All that is done in weakness ends in failure.‘Health and sickness are not two essentially different modes (…) Do not make them into separate principles (…) In reality, between these two ways of being there are only differences of degree; exaggeration, disproportion, disharmony of normal phenomena is what constitutes the diseased state’ (C.Bernard)‘Objectivity’ or, equivalently, the want of personality, want of will and the inability to love.‘Passion’ as a name for disorder or int [...]


    20. The Will to Power is an incomplete book. It was one that Nietzsche fully intended to complete but was never able to because he contracted syphilis and was unable to complete any more complete books.Through the compilation of the notebooks we get a rough sketch of the ideas of will to power, eternal recurrence and some genuinely polished aphorisms. But if you want to delve deeply into the ideas of Nietzsche's philosophy please read any number of his other books. For example: The Genealogy of Mora [...]


    21. "In order to sustain the theory of a mechanistic world, therefore, we always have to stipulate to what extent we are employing two fictions: the concept of motion (taken from our sense language) and the concept of the atom (=unity, deriving from our psychical "experience"): the mechanistic theory presupposes a sense prejudice and a psychological prejudiceThe mechanistic world is imagined only as sight and touch imagine a world (as "moved") --so as to be calculable-- thus causal unities are inven [...]


    22. "Todo o Grande Homem é CépticoTodo o grande homem é, necessariamente, céptico, ainda que possa não o mostrar: pelo menos se a grandeza dele consistir em querer uma coisa grande e grandes meios para realizá-la. A liberdade em relação a todas as convicções faz parte da sua vontade: o que está em conformidade com o "despotismo esclarecido" que todas as grandes paixões exercem. Uma paixão dessa espécie põe o intelecto ao seu serviço e tem a coragem de fazer uso até de certos meios p [...]


    23. When it comes to Nietzsche I have been prejudiced by the work of Walter Kaufmann and R.J. Hollingdale. Kaufmann, who translated most of the philosopher's works, clearly cared for his subject and attempted a positive reconstruction of the man in his biography of him as well as in his translations. His work as akin to that of an honest scholar of Christian antiquity who happens to be Christian himself.Consequently, Kaufmann's attempt to fabricate his subject's unpublished manuscripts into a fair r [...]


    24. Book has given me so much. Above all, the work did turn upside-down everything I considered a good, proper or moralue that in 1999 I was very Young and my personality wasnt yet developedI have to add, that understanding latin, speaking spanish, german and english, was easier to read, I only needed some help for translation of french citates and it did enlarge my horizonTime has come again and I will read it once againI will add a note to present You the difference of understanding it - from my p [...]

    26. Fair to say this is not an easy book. not sure if I should even call it a book, it's more of a collection of notes put together into "Books" with each a different theme. I particularly enjoyed this book, although it took me so long to finish it. The penguin edition especially is very helpful with the notes at the end. Great book! would recommend to people who want to learn more on Nietzsche's philosophy, not for a light read before bed!


    27. I reread The Will to Power recently and I absorbed, yet again, another set of meaning from this work.Pros: Nietzsche makes me laugh and say "No he didn't!" quite often.Cons: He switches between making up his own history and then whining about it quite often. But c'mon, it's Nietzche.Overall: I didn't go all out on my review here mostly because there are dozens of volumes of commentaries on Nietzsche's work out there. I liked it, but I can't think of another person I would recommend it to.


    28. Too bad he was a Fascist. A really smart Fascist to boot! He wasn't a Nazi because he was not an anti-semite, but a Fascist none the less. Don't let your college professor sugar coat it, Nietzsche was bat-shit crazy, and that's why I love his books!



    29. This is just selections from Nietzsche's notebooks of the 1880's, not a real book. But I'd rather have a collection of Nietzsche's B-sides and outtakes than any other philosopher's greatest hits.
