Friedrich Nietzsche ist einer der wirkungsmächtigsten Philosophen deutscher Sprache. »Jenseits von Gut und Böse« (1886) und die dazugehörige Streitschrift »Zur Genealogie der Moral« (1887) bieten den idealen Einstieg in das Verständnis seiner Philosophie. Berühmt und berüchtigt zum Beispiel seine Theorie vom »Willen zur Macht« oder die Unterscheidung zwischen »Herren- und Sklavenmoral«, die hier in ihrem ursprünglichen Kontext erscheinen: als Bestandteile einer so genannten »Philosophie der Zukunft«, die von ihrer Kraft, sprachlichen Brillanz und Faszination bis heute nichts verloren hat.

The education of humanity is the key to the next century's culture, its social and practical life. The main concerns of education are perennial, but the continuous flood of inventions, the technological innovations that re-shape life, calls for a radically new appraisal of the situation, such as only philosophy can provide. Answering the call of humanity for the measure, sense of proportion and direction that could re-orient present and future education, the phenomenology of life - integral and scientific, in a dialogue with the arts, the sciences, and the humanities - proposes an ontopoietic model of life's unfolding as the universal paradigm for this re-orientation. Taking the Human Creative Condition as its Archimedean point, it offers a unique context for a fresh investigation of the concerns of education, both perennial and immediate.

Richard Strauss's tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra is one of his most controversial works, but it is also one of the staples of the virtuoso orchestra. Its greatest popularity has been achieved in recent years with its association with Kubrick's film 2001--A Space Odyssey. This guide examines the intellectual background of the work and considers the ways in which it has been received by composers and writers. It also discusses the musical background of Liszt and Wagner which gave rise to the genre "tone poem," and provides an analysis of several aspects of Strauss's musical language.
