From the Publisher
Annotation Proclaimed a genius at a young age, Friedrich Nietzsche became a full professor at the University of Basel at the age of 25, an unheard of accomplishment. However a life of ease and scholarship were not to be--wracked by debilitating headaches, digestive pain, and an ever-increasing blindness, Nietzsche became a peripatetic and loverlorn philosopher before descending into delusions of grandeur and madness at the age of 34. Julian Young's "philosophical biography" seeks to capture Nietzsche's life and times and show how his experiences influenced his thinking without ever trivializing or psychologizing Nietzsche's radical philosophies concerning the roles of power, art, and morals in a world without God.
Editors Note A look at the life and work of the influential philosopher reveals his anguished existence and assesses the philosophical connotations of his morality, religion, and art.
