After being told to avoid Nietzsche altogether, I have continued my ancients reading (Seneca included) with his ‘Twilight of Idols’. I read this version that provided additional works available – translated by Walter Kaufmann. This post was helpful in me deciding where to start + a philosophy forum I ran across – thanks to both!
Overall, I recommend reading this work from him. He is a bit difficult to follow in some places, and I definitely needed the power of Google to check references, historians, and translate some of the words. I would recommend reading the opening by Kaufman BEFORE reading Nietzsche’s works, as he uses phrases that don’t mean what they mean today. In addition, he makes references – such as Spirit, that have a cross meaning across all of his lifetime works.
I read this publication in a week, so not to much of a time commitment. I will be reading Good and Evil next. (I would have read first, but it seems I didn’t purchase the full version, so following @BrianMcCallion advice now..
Would love any thoughts and further recommendations!
