Not that guy, but reading the literary Greeks would be helpful with Nietzsche, also Aristotle. Heidegger agrees with me so you can't bully me.

Who is to be Master of the World?
An Introduction to the Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche
>>
Serious answer.

Presocratics
Old Testament
Plato's Phaedo and Republic
Aristotle's Ethics (if not complete works)
New Testament
Descartes' Meditations
Hume's Enquiry

I know that Schopenhauer was an influences on him but I know nothing of the mans work. Nietzsche was a philologist and so studied the Vedic writings, Buddhism and he was at least aware of Zoroastrianism although I don't know what texts he engaged with for that. Basically one should develop an understanding of the world before Christianity came on the scene, in the western tradition the only thing close to its devaluing of the real material world we live in was to be found in Plato. For instance one has to understand that even though Judaism has a transcendental god the religion itself is to a large extent quiet about an afterlife and all rewards are to be attained in this world making it thoroughly this-worldly.

One could say that Hegel strongly influences him too but discretely. I'm not sure how much this should be emphasised however since he almost never mentions the man.

Who else would you consider to be in that group?

The Greeks are obvious so I won't name them. (They also have the benefit of not having their entire oeuvre preserved -- mostly just the best bits.)

I'd say Dante, Hume, Kafka, Shakespeare, Nabokov, Kierkegaard, Conrad, Quine.

How the hell do you know that?! Maybe we've been left with their worst stuff.

Beyond good and evil
Genealogy of morals

Zarathustra. I think the poetry of it encapsulates what makes Nietzsche different from other philosophers.
>>
>>7661020

It didn't even have a real heaven/hell until other religions created the idea

there was just a dark, quiet place beneath the earth where all bodies went to rest

Fucking plebs.


Also, the prologue to Thus Spake Zarathustra is essential to understanding Nietzsche on the ubermensch and why he must come. By prologue I mean the scene when Zarathustra meets the holy hermit, and their parting.
