Is God dead? Is traditional morality just 'a useful mistake'? Does 'the will to power' lead to the Holocaust? What are the limitations of scientific knowledge? Is human evolution complete or only just beginning? All of these questions are raised by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophy. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of Nietzsche for our present time. His extraordinary insights into human psychology, morality, religion and power seem quite clairvoyant today: existentialism, psychoanalysis, semiotics and postmodernism are plainly anticipated in his writings. This book reflects the diversity and depth of this great 19-th century thinker. It shows Nietzsche as a fearless critic of vanity and bad faith - the philosopher who Freud believed had 'greater self-knowledge than anyone I have read'.
