Review: Aphorisms on Love and Hate by Friedrich Nietzsche (Penguin Little Black Classic #5)

Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate - Friedrich Nietzsche

Goodreads summary:

'We must learn to love, learn to be kind, and this from our earliest youth ... Likewise, hatred must be learned and nurtured, if one wishes to become a proficient hater'

This volume contains a selection of Nietzsche's brilliant and challenging aphorisms, examining the pleasures of revenge, the falsity of pity, and the incompatibility of marriage with the philosophical life.


My opinion:

I really liked his opinion on certain topics but I don't like this edition so much. I wish they would have explain just a few subjects and not executed in pointless bullet points. Some of his opinions only got one sentence. Even tough I didn't like this edition, it still made me excited to read more of his work. The Portable Nietzsche is listed on the Rory Gilmore reading challenge and I planned to read that one at some point, but because I got introduced by his works it made me even more interested in picking it up.


Have you read something of his works?
