Book Overview
Grounded in his famous notion that God is dead, Nietzsche's most personal book--and one of his best The Joyous Science --also known as The Gay Science and The Joyful Wisdom --is a liberating voyage of discovery as Nietzsche's realization that God is dead and his critique of morality, the arts and modernity give way to an exhilarating doctrine of self-emancipation and the concept of eternal recurrence. Here is Nietzsche at his most personal and affirmative; in his words, this is a book of exuberance, restlessness, contrariety and April showers. With its unique voice and style, its playful combination of poetry and prose, and its invigorating quest for self-emancipation, The Joyous Science is a literary tour de force and quite possibly Nietzsche's best book.
