Friedrich Nietzsche

(1844-1900)

German Author
A major influence on the French and German writers and philosophers of the XXth century

In revolt against Christianism, Nietzsche was the son of a Lutherian minister, who had studied classical philology at the univesities of Bonn and Leipzig.

Nietzsche, for a time, was a close friend of Richard Wagner, and his first book, Die Geburt Der Tragodie Aus Dem Geist Der Musik (The Birth of Tragedy Out of the Spirit of Music) deals partly with his music.

Due to syphilis, in his last years Nietzsche suffered from mental disease and breakdowns. In Turin, in1889, one year before his death, he collapsed in the street.


Like Chaucer, Milton, Goethe, D.H. Lawrence, Shelley Nietzsche liked to travel to Italy.

He used to settle there during the winter, and in Switzerland (St Moritz) during the summer.

His major works are: Also Sprach Zarathustra (Thus Spoke Zarathustra -1892), Jenseits Von Gut Und Bose (Beyond Good and Evil 1886), Zur Genealogie Der Moral (On the Genealogy of Morals 1887), Antichrist Gotzen-Dammerung (Twilight of the Idols and The Antichrist 1895) and Ecce Homo (1908).

Nietzsche was a stateless person, since he had given up his Prussian citizenship in 1869

Amongst others, Nietzsche influenced his compatriot Thomas Mann Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, and Sigmund Freud

He is probably best known for Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Goebbels, the father of propaganda and one of the main promoters of Nazism, liked Nietzsche's view of 'Herrenmensch', vindicating a new type of man who was mastering manipulation of the masses, erecting himself as a law.

Nietzsche, however, strongly opposed German nationalism and biological racism.

He is also famous for his proclamation of the death of God.
