With the publication this September of Dawn: Thought on the Presumptions of Morality (volume 5 in the series; translated by Brittain Smith, afterword by Keith Ansell-Pearson $21.95 paper/$65 cloth), Stanford University Press resumes publication of The Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche, the first complete, critical, and annotated English edition of all of Nietzsche's work. Begun in 1995 and on hiatus for over a decade, the series, organized originally by Ernst Behler and Bernd Magnus, is a translation of the celebrated Kritische Studienausgabe in 15 Bänden (1980) edited by Giorgio Colli and Mazzino Montinari.
In addition to corrected editions of all of Nietzsche’s published works, the series will also include his early unpublished writings while a Professor of Philology at the University of Basel; his notebooks for his published works, with preliminary drafts and variants; and the complete notebooks from his final years, much of which material was never reworked by Nietzsche into a published form. Each of the volumes will include the annotations and complete editorial apparatus provided by Colli and Montinari, supplemented by additional notes incorporating the latest findings of Nietzsche research. The translations, by a team of Germanists and Nietzsche scholars, have all been examined by the series editors to assure translation consistency across volumes, and have been carefully cross-referenced and indexed. Once complete, the translations in this series are likely to become the scholarly standard for all subsequent English-language Nietzsche scholarship.
