Nietzsche's New Darwinism
Oxford University Press

Primary Sources

For Nietzsche's German text I have relied on:

Colli, G., and Montinari, M. 1980. Sämtliche Werke: Kritische Studienausgabe in 15 Bänden. Berlin: de Gruyter.

Where I provide the German, it reproduces this edition.

Nietzsche's Published Works

Here is a table that gives Nietzsche's published works and any prefaces, separately numbered chapters, and so on that I refer to. I give these works' approximate years of composition—which permits coordination with Nietzsche's Nachlass notes (whose dates I supply when citing them). This table also gives my abbreviations for these prefaces, and notes if they were written and added later.

  • BT The Birth of Tragedy (1869–1871)

    • .ASC “Attempt at a Self-Criticism,” a preface written in 1886

  • UM Untimely Meditations (1873–1876)

    • .i “David Strauss: The Confessor and the Writer”

    • .ii “On the Uses and Disadvantages of History for Life”

    • .iii “Schopenhauer as Educator”

    • .iv “Richard Wagner in Bayreuth”

  • HH Human, All-Too-Human (1876–1879)

  • Z Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1882–1885)

    • .i–.iv Four parts

    • .i.P “Zarathustra's Preface” to part I

      • Nietzsche doesn't number the sections in his parts—we must add them. Some of the sections have numbered subsections, which I cite as, e.g., Z.iii.12.20.

  • BGE Beyond Good and Evil (1885–1886)

    • .P Preface

  • GM On the Genealogy of Morals (1887)

(p.277) Nietzsche's Nachlass

As described in the note on citations, I cite Nietzsche's unpublished essays—all dated 1870–1873—simply by their titles (e.g., “The Greek State”). I cite his notes by their appearance in the Kritische Studienausgabe (volume number, then notebook number, then note number in brackets), unless the note was collected into The Will to Power, in which case I cite it by WP and the note number there. In both cases I append the note's year of composition, to allow it to be placed against the published works. There is also the following useful collection of some of Nietzsche's early notes:

Breazeale, D. (ed. and trans.) 1979. Philosophy and Truth: Selections from Nietzsche's Notebooks of the Early 1870s. Atlantic Highlands, N.J.: Humanities Press.

For notes included in this volume I append to the Kritische Studienausgabe citation a reference to P&T, followed by page number.

I refer to a few of Nietzsche's letters, identifying them by their addressee, and month and year. These appear in

Colli, G., and Montinari, M. 1986. Sämtliche Briefe: Kritische Studienausgabe in 8 Bänden. Berlin: de Gruyter.
