In this extraordinary work Nietzsche traces his life, work and development as a philosopher, examines the heroes he has identified with, struggled against and then overcome – Schopenhauer, Wagner, Socrates, Christ – and predicts the cataclysmic impact of his ‘forthcoming revelation of all values’.
Both self-celebrating and self-mocking, penetrating and strange, Ecce Homo gives the final, definitive expression to Nietzsche’s main beliefs and is in every way his last testament.

Mar 21, Glenn Russell rated it it was amazing. For whom am I writing this review? If Nietzsche were by my side I suspect he would want me to start with the following quote from Ecce Homo: We all know there is a time of transition hovering about age nineteen when the emotions of sensitive souls are heightened and experience is intensified, intensified to such a point that even thoughts and concepts have a highly-charged emotional tone; one’s life deepens, exaggerates, strengthens, amplifies, ignites and one borders on becoming an inflamed madman, even if the madness is only known internally.
This time of disequilibrium and hormonal topsy-turvy ordinarily settles down into the next phase of life: Additionally, to add fuel to the emotional and philosophical fire, Nietzsche was not only sensitive but hyper-sensitive to music and the arts and had extraordinary linguistic and literary abilities. Thus, we are well to remember all of this when we read in Ecce Homo: What one has no access to through experience one has no ear for.
This is a question any aspiring reader of Nietzsche must ask. A self-portrait of Egon Schiele appears on the cover of this Penguin edition, which is most appropriate since this artist courageously and without compromise created a deeply personal expressive style of art causing much controversy in his brief life he died at Here are a few of the artist’s quotes: It is to restrict germinating life.
Art is primordially eternal. This is what it takes. What commitment are you making to live with passion and intensity in your life? If you have not been deeply moved by art and music and have not transformed yourself again and again, what chance do you think you stand in understanding Nietzsche? Perhaps it would be better for you to go on the academic head trip: Nietzsche devotes a short chapter to each of his books and then ends with a chapter entitled Why I Am A Destiny.
Since this review is of Nietzsche’s autobiography, Nietzsche gets the last word, but being Nietzsche, the last word is three quotes. That which is called idol on the titlepage is quite simply that which has hitherto been called truth.

Traits of existentialist nihilism could be found in the book as Nietzsche believes that there in no inherent meaning in one’s life, rather one’s compelled to invent meaning of one’s life and then live life accordingly!!!

I remember the first time I read something of his, it was Antichrist, odd years ago and my mind was blown.
Thus Spoke Zarathustra is perhaps my favorite book ever and I go back to it from time to time when I need a kick in the ass. Hommp point is, I always feel a closeness to Nietzsche. Every time I open one of his books, it’s like we’re sitting in a small cafe, round metallic tables and all, just the two of us, and I’m leaning close so I can suck in as much of his brilliance as I can.
I can’t tell if he enjoys my company but I sure as hell nietzzsche his. And so it was that I opened Ecce Homo and nietzssche him talk to me about himself, his views, his books and how come he’s so fucking brilliant. So much self-importance only from Nietzsche I can take. Another utterly enlightening book and one more proof that Nietzsche was way ahead of his time and all times as a matter of fact.

Senior year had a pattern of working in the library all day, going to the work-study job at its Pub Club at night, heading back to the Vegetarian Coop after cleaning up the bar to study in until too weary to continue. Jung, particularly his alchemical writings. Until the very end of senior year I had no girlfriend.
Indeed, I I was a very serious student during the last two years at Grinnell College. Indeed, I hadn’t had a girlfriend for a while, but I’d gotten over obsessing about it by the end of the second year.
I was no longer a virgin, no longer worried that I was ever to be alone. Study was pretty much all-absorbing. Social life was taken care of by bartending and by living in a commune. I didn’t have to seek it. Then, one night at work I was introduced to Mindy by a mutual friend. What was special about her was that she was going to study that summer at the Jung Institut in Zurich, the center of world analytical psychology.
I was still deeply immersed in the field and quite impressed. This news and some conversation with her about it got me very interested in Mindy, now transformed into desire’s ideal. Of course, this was crazy and I knew it. I was obsessed with her after one meeting, in a group, lasting no more than a couple of hours. Furthermore, she’d given no indication of being attracted to me. Consequently, I resolved to let the infatuation have free reign, but tell no one of it.
Instead, I’d use the power towards the purposes of self-transformation, making of myself the alchemical krater, hoping to change common sexuality into something more. As a part of this discipline I refrained from masturbation. Of course I saw Mindy and spoke to her at every opportunity. There weren’t that many, so deep was my cover, but the few occasions for further conversation stoked the fires of passion quite excruciatingly.
I thought of Mindy all the time, always reminding myself that the object of desire was not this college girl but what she represented: I got up, turned on the miserable fluorescent on the desk, sat down.
Out of the corner of my eyes I saw things, dark things scuttle in the corners, out from the radiator, under the bed. I could feel the rush from their wings–like bats. Indeed, as they gained form and became more clearly visible, now in the center of vision, they looked like crosses between bats and owls, more the size of the latter, fat with humanoid faces.
This was rather too much. I was fully awake now and, for the first time in a “normal” state of consciousness, having vivid hallucinations.

The beings, and there were lots of them, moving very quickly, did not seem benign. Indeed, they seemed the opposite. Scared, I turned on the overhead light, using the switch beside the door, and headed out into the hallway, shutting my room, turning on all the lights. Then, realizing they weren’t nietzxche though I could hear them back there, in the roomI settled down in the brightest of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen, and sat there, slowly calming, until my homo started filtering back from the concert.
Nietzsche, who had his own issues with love and his own ambitions that went beyond the merely human, wrote Ecce Homo shortly before his psychotic break. Although Kaufmann and others have entertained the speculation that he may have gone mad through some physical agency, such as tertiary syphilis, my little experience suggests that one may actually be able to think oneself to dcce. In any case, my dream of reason having led to nightmare, I retreated from the fulness of ambition, stopped seeking chance encounters with Mindy, started masturbating again and shared this story with a friend or two.
The weirdness ended, not to be repeated. By year’s end I even had entered into a romantic relationship with a woman. Friedrich Nietzsche began the composition of this most unusual book on his 44th birthday, October 15,the last birthday before he believed himself to be the King of Italy, then Napoleon, then God, ultimately sliding into the final catatonic phase in which he passed the remaining 11 years of “life”.
