Twilight of Idols by Friedrich Nietzsche

  • In one sentence: the cleverest troll in history tries to say 200 things at once.
  • Number of reads: 2 since 2007.
  • Galef type: Theory 2 & 3 - models of what makes something succeed or fail, & a problem statement
    Values 1 - make an explicit argument about values.
  • To be read when: first getting into him.

The easiest way in. He is among the most misunderstood people ever, and his writing, contradictory and esoteric, sarcastic and pompous, is one reason for this.

I made a playlist for this here.

Hollingdale is best, though I plan to crawl through the original at some point.
