("What is done from love
always takes place beyond good and evil.")
Nietzsche is one of the greatest philosophers of all time.
A genuine tragedy of the 20th century was the distortion, misinterpretation, and subsequent defamation and posthumous calumniation of Friedrich Nietzsche, which continues even to this day. I offer below several excellent links to credible resources about Nietzsche, his writing and his life, much more comprehensive than I could ever hope to put together on my own.
I have your attention, however...
Throughout his reign
of terror, Hitler never renounced his belief in Jesus Christ as Saviour, nor
did he reject his Catholic faith; in fact, he used it as means to rally the
people. One need only refer to Mein Kampf, or review Hitler's many speeches.
Are there links? Yea, verily!
those Christians and Jews who are of the notion that if someone as bad as
Hitler liked Nietzsche, it doesn't matter if Nietzsche was dead, clearly
Nietzsche was as crazy and/or evil as Hitler:
Obviously, I am at odds with the popular perceptions of Nietzsche, but I'll not attempt to challenge them all here on this meager bit of cyber-dust. Rather, I provide these links, both for friends of Nietzsche, as well as those curious to find out what sort of man he actually was:
deutsch (everything in German), an excellent Nietzsche site in his native
tongue. Actually, it offers an English version, but I have not thoroughly
cross-read it to determine the overall translation quality. A gloss
deemed it quite good, indeed, but it was just a quick skim. Very much a
College, this is perhaps the absolute best biographical, historical website
devoted to Nietzsche. It provides a year-to-year synopsis of Nietzsche's
life, from birth to death, as well as featuring quotes from personal written
sources in their original German, with English translations. As concise
as it is comprehensive, as comprehensive as it is concise. When you
arrive at this site, simply click on the graphic to begin the journey,
in case that isn't apparent. Thank you so much for this marvelous website,
A nice one page bio. Below is the index page to this site, set up in frames, with even more Nietzsche links and info; I find the nietbio.html the most useful original composition on this site, however. Also, the index4.html is all about frames:
A useful historical glossary entry. Not an elaborate site, more
informative than some, but. Well, look
at the addy. www.marxists.org
What can one expect? (I'm an anarchist, by the way, if you're wondering
where I'm coming from on that marxist crack...)
cause, be cause, be cause, be cause, be cause--be cause of the wonderful
things he does!
Nietzsche pulls back the curtains we tailored to shroud the mystery of Oz, I mean, god.
The Quantum Nietzsche
precisely what science nerds such as myself live and die for. A full
manuscript exploring Nietzsche's philosophy as it applies to quantum mechanics.
Or is it exploring quantum mechanics as it applies to Nietzsche's philosophy.

Nietzsche Channel tends to load slow when
I come in on a modem, but it has Nietzsche's works auf
deutsch and in English! If you
have any German skills at all, I highly recommend you give the German a
spin, most especially Zarathustra, as it is written in comparatively simple
language, vs. Jenseits von Gut und Böse. Without a doubt,
springboard for Nietzsche
reading and written reference.

The Nietzsche Page at the University of Southern California
Once upon a time, everyone
was raving about Douglas Thomas' Nietzsche page at USC. In fact, if you do
a web search for Nietzsche, you'll find many, many, many pages that feature an
extremely outdated link for this page. Guess what. I found
the new, updated link, and... IT WORKS! Yippee! So if you've been
wondering where the hell that damned "The Nietzsche Page at USC" had slipped off
to--hey, hey, hey! It's Phat Phreddie! Oh, but do be forewarned--it
appears Dr. Thomas has not updated his links in a very long time. So don't
get too excited! ;)
if Nietzsche were alive today, he'd be posting on the web at zmag.org!
this is without doubt where he'd be getting his recreational news.
and lest I forget, no doubt about it, Cosmic Baseball would be his recreational
sport of choice.
Here are the links to his specific pages within the Cosmic Baseball site (some have player stats!):
page gave a 404 error 12/01/2003; I wrote the webmaster (again)! --> http://www.cosmicbaseball.com/nietzsche.html

it totally fails to reference his years playing on the Paradise Pisces team! http://www.cosmicbaseball.com/nietz8.html

Miller also provides the exceedingly valuable Pirate Nietzsche Page described and linked below. (12/15/2003 Which is just as absent from the internet as the Nietzsche and Nihilism page formerly linked here.)

This site has many, many good historical pictures and excellent information, presented in a "homier" fashion than the more professional, academic Dartmouth pages.

Labyrinth WAS an entry in the 'fficial Fred For

never did check their translations, but I did explore their many cool links to additional writings on
Nietzsche's writings! Labyrinth, indeed...
A maze that's fun and informative, so even when you're lost you'll see that
you're found. But it's gone now. (Cue up "Flowers of the Forest," I
A closing comment:
I have never sat in a classroom where a professor spoke falsely or ill of Nietzsche, but I have heard accounts of others who have had this experience. There is positively no excuse for such malicious disinformation being willfully spread by those who pose as respectable educators. Isolating phrases out of context has long been a means of intentional misrepresentation to detract from those who threaten the status quo, and this seems to be a key means by which Nietzsche is defamed. I urge anyone who seeks truth to read Nietzsche, in his native German, when possible, cover-to-cover--not just the snippets an ignorantly-biased professor spews to further his own hate-filled agenda. Such individuals are no better than Nietzsche's own racist, misdirected sister.
