Nietzsche Source

Nietzsche Source publishes scholarly editions of Friedrich Nietzsche's works and estate. Currently the website consists in two parts:

  • Digitale Kritische Gesamtausgabe (eKGWB). Digital version of the German standard critical edition of the complete works (works, posthumous fragments, and correspondence) of Nietzsche edited by Colli and Montinari. The eKGWB is the first version of the Colli/Montinari edition which integrates directly into the digitized text all the about 6,600 philological corrections contained in the various commentary volumes of the print edition. The corrected passages are highlighted and, upon mouse click, readers can see the previous uncorrected passage of the print edition.

Works are listed according to type (published works, private publications, authorized manuscripts, posthumous writings, posthumous fragments, and letters). They can be searched by a free text search. Additional options include restricting the time period in which the works were written, restricting the type of texts, limiting the search to a group of letters, or a combination of various of these search options. Texts can be consulted online, copied, or printed.

  • Digitale Faksimile Gesamtausgabe (DFGA). Digital facsimile reproduction of the entire Nietzsche estate, including first editions of works, manuscripts, letters and biographical documents.

Works are sorted according to type. It is possible to browse, print, or download them. Facsimiles are shown in colour and in high resolution. Angle, zoom, contrast, brightness, hue, and saturation can be adapted.

The website is managed by the Association HyperNietzsche, a non-profit organisation hosted at the École normale supérieure in Paris. The project was sponsored by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, the Discovery Project (funded by the European Commission), the Foundation of Weimar Classics, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation and the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research, and the French Ministry of Research.
