Example text

The title is a translation into German (in our edition, into English) of the Provencal subtitle. Gaya scienza (‘joyful, cheerful, or gay science’) was a term used by the troubadours in the twelfth to fourteenth centuries to refer to the art of poetry. In Ecce Homo Nietzsche writes that he has used the term gaya scienza here to designate the specific unity of ‘singer, knight, and free spirit’ which was characteristic of early Provencal culture. Preface to the second edition 1 This book might need more than one preface; and in the end there would still be room for doubting whether someone who has not experienced something similar could, by means of prefaces, be brought closer to the experiences of this book.

It is not a matter, as I read him, of Nietzsche’s believing in a theory of eternal recurrence. The idea (which does not occur in Beyond Good and Evil or The Genealogy of Morality) appears in Zarathustra in a form similar to that of The Gay Science, and Nietzsche mentions its importance in The Twilight of the Idols and in Ecce Homo (the intellectual autobiography that he wrote on the verge of insanity). There are some places in which it is treated as a theoretical idea, but they are largely confined to his unpublished notes (his Nachlass), some of which, particularly from his last years, were published in The Will to Power, which is not a book by Nietzsche at all, but a selection from these notes tendentiously put together by his sister.
