Grounded in his famous notion that "God is dead," Nietzsche's most personal book--and one of his bestThe 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.
