Nietzsche was the greatest polemist ever. He played the role of Saint-Michael, the dragon slayer, in his Homeric battle with the existing dragons (the Christian moralists). He tried to revalue all generally accepted `good and evil' values and really felt that mankind was pregnant with a new super-species, the `Übermensch'.
His influence on philosophy, literature, psychology and politics is immense.

This feels like the collection of Nietzsche's 'not yet ready for Broadway' material. I'd skip it.
