By Friedrich Nietzsche

'I am now not a guy, i'm dynamite.'

Ecce Homo is an autobiography like no different. intentionally provocative, Nietzsche subverts the conventions of the style and pushes his philosophical positions to combative extremes, developing a genius-hero whose existence is a chronicle of incessant self-overcoming. Written in 1888, a couple of weeks prior to his descent into insanity, the booklet sub-titled 'How To turn into What you're' passes less than evaluate all Nietzsche's past works in order that we, his 'posthumous' readers, can eventually understand
him aright, on his personal phrases. He reaches ultimate reckonings along with his many enemies - Richard Wagner, German nationalism, 'modern males' usually - and principally Christianity, proclaiming himself the Antichrist. Ecce Homo is the summation of a rare philosophical occupation, a final nice testomony to
Nietzsche's will.

No, ignorance in physiologicis*—that confounded ‘idealism’—is the real disaster in my life, the superfluous and stupid part of it, something from which nothing good has grown, which cannot be compensated for, cannot be offset. I count as consequences of this ‘idealism’ all my mistakes, all the great instinctual aberrations and ‘modesties’ deviating from the task of my life, for instance my becoming a philologist—why not a doctor, at least, or something else eye-opening? In my time in Basle my entire spiritual diet, including my daily schedule, was an utterly senseless abuse of extraordinary energies, without a supply of energies in any way covering the consumption, without even any reflection on consumption and replacement.
