The German Online Editions of Nietzsche’s Works: A User’s Perspective

The German Online Editions of Nietzsche’s Works: A User’s Perspective <p>Abstract:</p><p>This article considers the two most important German online editions of Nietzsche’s works, <i>Nietzsche Source</i> and <i>Nietzsche Online</i>, from a user’s perspective.
