Few completed texts exist from this period (except philological ones, see below). The philosophically most relevant work Nietzsche did was on Democritus (consisting of many notes, but it was never even brought close to completion), his philological work on the oldest extant history of philosophy (that of Diogenes Laertius), and his plans for a brief period to write his doctoral dissertation on philosophy (as did some of his acquaintances) rather than in the field of philology. Three of Nietzsche’s earliest works are remarkably mature, and also relevant for understanding his later development: his earliest autobiographical writings, his school essay on Hölderlin, and his essay “Fate and History” (together with its companion “Freedom of the Will and Fate”).

During the first two years at university, Nietzsche revised this final school essay on Theognis and turned it into a lecture at the philological society (of which Nietzsche was a founding member and chairman for a year). He thereafter showed it to Friedrich Ritschl, who was so impressed that he recommended Nietzsche rewrite it for publication in the journal Rheinisches Museum für Philologie, of which Ritschl was editor. By August 1866 Nietzsche had given Ritschl the finished manuscript for what was to become his first publication.
