  1. It is certainly worth studying , at least because of the influence that Nietzscheanism has had on philosophy and literature.

    I recommend that you start by at least reviewing the concepts of Socrates and Schopenhauer, especially the latter. In addition, it does not hurt to know the dogmas of Catholicism and Protestantism. In my opinion, it is most convenient to read Nietzsche's own works in the order in which he created them, because, firstly, this way you can see how his ideas developed, and secondly, many of the concepts introduced in his early works are expanded in subsequent ones.

    I can recommend the following:

    1. “The Greek State”

    2. “The birth of tragedy from the spirit of music”, if you have a minimal knowledge of classical philology. This treatise is interesting primarily because it is here that Nietzsche introduces the concepts of Apollonian and Dionysian principles, and also speaks in some detail about the Socratic problem

    3. “Human, too human”

    4. Veselaya Nauka

    5. “Thus spake Zarathustra”

    6. “The Fall of idols”

    7. “The Antichrist”

    8. “Ecce homo”

  2. Of course, it's worth it.But Nietzsche does not need to be studied,he needs to be understood(otherwise the process of reading his works will become a simple periodic turning of pages).I believe that Nietzsche should not be read from scratch. My advice : read the works of his predecessors (Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Schopenhauer, Socrates), as he has many references to philosophical concepts and hypotheses that had already appeared by that time.And also, never miss the points that you did not understand in the works, otherwise you will not understand the true meaning and will get confused at all.

    However, this process of knowing such a deep mind is infinitely interesting.So I suggest you get up to your head in Nietzsche.
