EARLY GREEK PHILOSOPHY & OTHER ESSAYS, by Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900), translated by Maximilian August Mügge (1878 - )

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/early-greek-philosophy-other-essays-by-friedrich-nietzsche/

“The essays contained in this volume treat of various subjects. With the exception of perhaps one we must consider all these papers as fragments. Written during the early Seventies, and intended mostly as prefaces, they are extremely interesting, since traces of Nietzsche's later tenets—like Slave and Master morality, the Superman—can be found everywhere. But they are also very valuable on account of the young philosopher's daring and able handling of difficult and abstruse subjects. "Truth and Falsity," and "The Greek Woman" are probably the two essays which will prove most attractive to the average reader.” (Summary by Maximilian Mügge)

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Moving this off the LaunchPad. Once you get some sections uploaded, you can advertise for a DPL in Listeners Wanted.

Thanks so much for the PL-ing and the kind words, Jennifer :) I have the rest of the files ready for you. Sorry for my delay - the middle sections of Nietzsche's discussion of pre-Socratic philosophers got really boring for me, lol!

At least it all ends with a really fun-to-read essay on truth :)
All the best,
John
