Courier Corporation, Jan 1, 2004 - Philosophy - 143 pages
For the title of his autobiography, Nietzsche chose Pilate's words upon discharging Christ to the mob: Ecce Homo, or "Behold the man." The philosopher's dramatically egotistical review of his life and works (featuring chapters called Why I Am So Wise and Why I Write Such Excellent Books) transcends mere arrogance with its use of masterful language to convey relevant ideas: the importance of questioning traditional morality, establishing autonomy, and making a commitment to creativity.
