These could be of some use to Logos users too, since lots of theologians interact with or argue against the ideas of Nietzsche, and Logos carries The SPCK Introduction to Nietzsche. We ought to be able to read the primary works themselves. I just came across a quote from Twilight of the Idols (“Without music life would be a mistake”) in a Vyrso book, Beauty Will Save the World by Brian Zahnd, and wanted to go look up the context but couldn't.

Since Nietzsche's works might offend some Logos users (he was, after all, the one who said "God is dead"), it might be better to bring them out as a Noet collection, but that's up to your judgment.

Those might not be the definitive translations or even titles (e.g., Thus Spoke Zarathustra; On the Genealogy of Morality), but I'm not Nietzsche scholar. That's why I'd like to have his works available, and also some books on understanding Nietzsche, by Christians and non-Christian academics alike.

Even better, bring them out in German too. I'd love to have these in my library.

Yes, good idea. The people on the Deutsches Unterforum would appreciate that.

Am presently reading Flusser's 'Sage of Galilee', who quotes Nietzsche oddly enough. I agree Nietzsche seems to float in and out of various writings, sometimes an observation, sometimes ideas not agreed with.

Certainly he'd fit well in the Noet section of the library.

That whole series has the same problem:

Only Barth and Bonhoeffer are in Logos (when they put it on prepub it may have been only Barth).

Let them not go the way of Dracula!

I support the availability of Nietzsche's works as well.

If we want him to intereact with Logos, I'd rather have him in Logos ... or a guarantee that Logos and Noet are always cross-linked to Logos standards.

If his stuff doesn't play nice with Logos, consider my Yes  withdrawn and replaced by No .

Agreed. I'm sure all Noet books will be accessible in Logos as Vyrso books are, but the question remains whether they will be ebooks (Logos "lite" books) like with Vyrso or whether they will be Logos editions with full manual tagging. I'm guessing that because Noet is geared towards academic scholars, it will be the latter. Hope so.

Yup, indeed. We need Rahner, Weil, and Kierkegaard too. I made a start by posting some of Kierkegaard's works in PB format a while back: 

[EDIT: I just discovered that these works I'd mentioned (now redacted from this post) are not in the public domain (I found their copyright renewals in this database), so I've taken down the ones I posted. Bummer.]

I was in the middle working on a couple more, The Sickness Unto Death, and Concluding Unscientific Postscript, when my computer died a year or so ago and I lost much of my work. Discouraged, I didn't continue at the time. Maybe someday I'll find the time to get back to them. But I hope Logos comes out with a Kierkegaard collection before I have to.

And if we get a Kierkegaard collection, let's have the International Kierkegaard Commentary too!

Both Kierkegaard and Nietzsche are on our radar. I can't make any promises at this point, but these are recognized gaps in our philosophy offerings. Thank you for letting us know you would like to have them in Logos and Noet.
