The Philosophy Of Friedrich Nietzsche (1900) by Broene, Johannes (????–????)

ℹ️ "A dissertation submitted to the faculty of Clark University Worcester, Massachusetts, in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of doctor of philosophy." (Title Page)

Friedrich Nietzsche (1900) by Mügge, Maximilian August (1878–????)

The Philosophy Of Friedrich Nietzsche (1901) by Dolson, Grace Neal (1874–1961)

ℹ️ "This is a critical exposition of Nietzsche's writings so far as they are concerned with philosophy and an attempt to point out their historical position. Riehl thinks no serious German writer so widely read, and while Miss Dolson refuses to accede him the foremost place in the thinkers of all time, which his disciples claim, he is not a charlatan taking himself seriously, but a significant figure among the philosophers of his quarter century. The entire literary movement, known as young Germany, acknowledges his leadership. Indeed he is not an isolated phenomena, but a part of the general intellectual movement of the last decades, and thus expressing clearly what many have dimly thought, only perhaps more radically. After a brief biography and outline, this writer treats of his æsthetic, intellectual and ethical periods successively, and finally of his relations to Schopenhauer, Hegel, the materialists and Neo-Kantians, and also his literary affinities." (The American Journal Of Psychology, 04/1901)

ℹ️ "This is a timely and able monograph on the most unique writer on philosophical topics that the 19th century has produced. Whatever one may think about the ephemeral nature of Nietzsche's work in philosophy, the fact that he is so much in vogue with la Jeunesse, particularly in France and Germany, calls for an appreciative recognition of the services of one who makes a serious attempt to digest and reproduce in something like a systematic form, the chaotic, disjointed, and paradoxical ejaculations in which the philosopher-poet of Röcken, like the haughty aristocrat of Ephesus, imitating nature, preferred to conceal rather than reveal his meaning. The value of Dr. Dolson's work is greatly enhanced by the dispassionate and judicial tone which is maintained throughout. The study is introduced by a brief biography of Nietzsche which gives us a glimpse of the sublime egotism of his personality, a presage of the ethical egoism in which his views finally crystallized. Think of a man deliberately setting out to employ a faithful Boswell to tag about at his heels and catch and preserve all the chance utterances that might fall from his lips Following a customary classification, Dr. Dolson then treats of Nietzsche's work as falling into three, more or less clearly defined, periods." (Charles M. Bakewell, The Philosophical Review, 05/1901)

Friedrich Nietzsche, The Dionysian Spirit Of The Age (1906) by Orage, Alfred Richard (1873–1934)

Friedrich Nietzsche, His Life And Work (1908) by Mügge, Maximilian August (1878–????)

ℹ️ "TO the Nietzschean scholar this book does not pretend to offer much, if anything at all, that is new. I have written it for the purpose of gaining for Nietzsche some appreciation and justice in the English-speaking world, where he is so little known, and, when not unknown, so often misunderstood. With the exception of the works by Barry, Common, Dolson, Ellis, Gould, Levy, Mencken, Orage, and Wallace, and a few good articles in magazines, scarcely anything worthy of note has been written about him. All these works, moreover, seem to me either too partial or too incomplete.

The present work is neither a polemic nor an apology. It is a modest endeavour to be just to the man whom Levy considers the greatest hero of the New Renascence, and whom, along with Herostratus, "Chambers' Biographical Dictionary" labels as a madman.

The essential and characteristic features of this book are the following :

1. It contains the first detailed biography of Nietzsche written since the publication of Frau Foerster-Nietzsche's excellent but rather "sisterly" book.

2. It gives the first English chronological sketch of all Nietzsche's works.

8. It seeks to apply the rigid method of historical and unprejudiced criticism to Nietzsche.

4. It supplies the fullest Nietzschean bibliography hitherto published."

Who Is To Be Master Of The World? An Introduction To The Philosophy Of Friedrich Nietzsche (1909) by Ludovici, Anthony Mario (1882–1971)

ℹ️ "I am going to speak to you of Friedrich Nietzsche — the Immoralist. A philosopher more difficult to understand, and yet more full of riches for those who do understand him, it would be hard to find.

Why should I wish to speak to you of Nietzsche ? The literature which has grown round his name and philosophy is already enormous. If you have read a third of it, you are already informed concerning him.

Nietzsche died but eight years ago, and he is now one of the most striking figures of modern European philosophy. It is with the deepest regret, however, that the inquirer into his life and works, gradually realises how completely and often maliciously, he has been misinterpreted and misjudged; —not only by ignorant commentators and by many of those learned professors who have been lured to the exposition of his works by the latter's inherent fascination, but even by his best and oldest friends as well.

That is why I wish to speak to you of Friedrich Nietzsche : because he has been misrepresented, and it were well for you to know him as he is ;—indeed, it is a pressing necessity that you should know him as he is."
(Lecture I)

09) Nietzsche, His Life And Works (1910) by Ludovici, Anthony Mario (1882–1971)

The Life Of Friedrich Nietzsche (1911) by Halévy, Daniel (1872–1962)

ℹ️ "In M. Halevy's book, founded on that of Madame Forster-Nietzsche, we have in English for the first time a portrait of him in the intimacies of his life and thought. It exhibits him as better than his gospel, a hundred times better than most of those disturbers of civilisation who call themselves his disciples." (Introduction written by T. M. Kettle)

10) Nietzsche And Art (1911) by Ludovici, Anthony Mario (1882–1971)

ℹ️ "IN this book, which embodies a course of lectures delivered in a somewhat condensed and summarized form at University College, London, during November and December, 1910, I have done two things. I have propounded Nietzsche's general Art doctrine, and, with the view of illustrating it and of defining it further, I have also applied its leading principles to one of the main branches of Art." (Preface)

The Gospel Of Superman, The Philosophy Of Friedrich Nietzsche (1912) by Lichtenberger, Henri (1864–1941)

ℹ️ "In dealing with this mass of material, Professor Lichtenberger has exhibited the sympathetic qualities and soundness of judgment which long experience has led us to associate with French men of letters. His book does not profess to show how Nietzsche s philosophy may be applied to modern problems, but it gives us so definite a view of Nietzsche s life, character, and works that the reader will be at no loss as to what direction his own further studies of the philosopher should take." (Introduction written by J. M. Kennedy)
