By Friedrich Nietzsche

'I am now not a guy, i'm dynamite.'

Ecce Homo is an autobiography like no different. intentionally provocative, Nietzsche subverts the conventions of the style and pushes his philosophical positions to combative extremes, developing a genius-hero whose existence is a chronicle of incessant self-overcoming. Written in 1888, a couple of weeks prior to his descent into insanity, the e-book sub-titled 'How To develop into What you're' passes less than evaluate all Nietzsche's earlier works in order that we, his 'posthumous' readers, can eventually understand
him aright, on his personal phrases. He reaches ultimate reckonings along with his many enemies - Richard Wagner, German nationalism, 'modern males' in most cases - and primarily Christianity, proclaiming himself the Antichrist. Ecce Homo is the summation of a rare philosophical occupation, a final nice testomony to
Nietzsche's will.
