Most widely held works by Rüdiger Safranski
Nietzsche : a philosophical biography by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )
82 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 15 languages and held by 2,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No other modern philosopher has proved as influential as Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1990) & none is as poorly understood. In the first major biography in decades, Rudiger Safranski re-creates the anguished life of Nietzsche while simultaneously assessing the philosophical implications of his morality, religion, & art. Plagued by illness & profoundly shaped by his tortured sexuality, Nietzsche was a man of masks & mood swings, a thinker who called himself "dynamite" yet labored under the weight of compulsive self-consciousness. Posing apt questions & at time offering unorthodox interpretations of Nietzsche's philosophical writings, Safranski offers a brilliant portrait of a historical figure in a work that is as groundbreaking as it will be long-lasting
Martin Heidegger : between good and evil by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the century's greatest philosophers, without whom there would be no Sartre, no Foucault, no Frankfurt School, Martin Heidegger was also a man of great failures and flaws, a Faustus who made a pact with the devil of his time, Adolf Hitler. The story of Heidegger's life and philosophy, a quintessentially German story in which good and evil, brilliance and blindness are inextricably entwined and the passions and disasters of a whole century come into play, is told in this biography. Heidegger grew up in Catholic Germany where, for a chance at pursuing a life of learning, he pledged himself to the priesthood. Soon he turned apostate and sought a university position, which set him on the path to becoming the star of German philosophy in the 1920s. Rudiger Safranski chronicles Heidegger's rise along with the thought he honed on the way, with its debt to Heraclitus, Plato, and Kant, and its tragic susceptibility to the conservatism that emerged out of the nightmare of Germany's loss in World War I.A chronicle of ideas and of personal commitments and betrayals, Safranski's biography combines clear accounts of the philosophy that won Heidegger eternal renown with the fascinating details of the loves and lapses that tripped up this powerful intellectual. Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil does not shy away from full coverage of Heidegger's shameful transformation into a propagandist for the National Socialist regime; nor does it allow this aspect of his career to obscure his accomplishments

How much globalization can we bear? by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )
20 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this compelling new book, the philosopher Rudiger Safranski grapples with the pressing problems of the global age: 'Big Brother' states, terrorism, international security and the seeming impossibility of 'world' peace. He suggests that the era of globalization should not be thought of as that epoch in world history in which all human beings will see themselves in the same, indistinct situation. There will always be, Safranski argues, some need for understanding one's own situation by drawing boundaries and conceptualizing 'otherness' and individuality."--Jacket

12 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in German and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wir erleben eine rapide Veränderung unserer Denk- und Lebensgewohnheiten und fühlen uns ihr gegenüber machtlos. "Das Denken selbst gerät in eine Globalisierungsfalle. Monoton dreht es sich im Kreis der beiden Grundfragen: Wie beherrscht man das Globale, fragen die einen, und wie rettet man es, fragen die anderen." Der Philosoph Rüdiger Safranski hilft mit diesem Buch, sich zurechtzufinden in einem Ansturm von Eindrücken und Bedrohungen. Er ermutigt, Freiräume für Gleichgewicht und Handlungsfähigkeit zu schaffen, denn Globalisierung lässt sich nur gestalten, wenn darüber nicht die andere große Aufgabe versäumt wird: das Individuum, sich selbst zu gestalten
