Nietzsche, Friedrich


Importance of Nietzsche

  • Nietzsche elaborated Western philosophy in terms of the merger of of JudeoChristian, GrecoRoman and Germanic cultures.
  • He got people's attention by pulling the beards of Jews, Christians, Greeks, Romans and Germans with evocative aphorisms.

Was his philosophy generated as a symptom of his impending psychosis?

  • Probably not. Most of his life was lived out in a normal, healthy sequence of education and academic career.
