Publisher Description

Was he simply a depressed atheist, or was he a genius philosopher?  

Friedrich Nietzsche’s influence on the world of philosophy has undoubtedly been impressive. So what are we to think of this German thinker? Is his look on life and the universe truly negative? Or was he just misunderstood? 

What does it take to get to the deep meaning of his words? Did he see something beyond what the simple-minded perceive? 

His book Der Wille zur Macht ("The Will to Power") refers to what Nietzsche most likely thought to be the driving force in human beings, namely accomplishment, ambition, and trying to become the highest out there. 

He was on to something, wasn’t he? Aren’t we all trying to become more in life? 

His theory on nihilism raises questions, too: Is there an order to things, or do we just make that up to feed our convictions? 

It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? 

With all the reasoning and rationalist thinkers, is nihilism the theory that counters this? 

And what to think of his views on Christianity, alcoholism, existentialism, and the Übermensch? Are we going to stick with Descartes’ evidence that he exists because he thinks, or is a nihilist theory like that of Nietzsche’s more plausible? In other words, does he not exist? 

Hear more about the answers to these questions and others in this brief but powerful guide to Nietzsche’s life, theories, works, and prominent quotes.
