A part of Harper Perennial’s special “Resistance Library” highlighting classic works that illuminate the “Age of Trump”: reissued for a time of “fake news” and “alternative facts” comes a striking reissue of Friedrich Nietzsche’s classic collection of writings on truth, more relevant now than ever as we confront as a society the nature, and value, of truth. “We continue to live within the intellectual shadow cast by Nietzsche.”—New York Times Book Review “Perhaps no one has yet been truthful enough about what ‘truthfulness’ is.”— from On Truth and Untruth On Truth and Untruth charts Nietzsche’s evolving thinking on truth, which has exerted a powerful influence over modern and contemporary thought. This original collection features the complete text of the celebrated early essay “On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense” (”a keystone in Nietzsche’s thought”—Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy), as well as selections from the great philosopher’s entire career, including key passages from The Gay Science, Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, The Will to Power, Twilight of the Idols, and The Antichrist.
