Why must we believe that God is dead? Can we accept that traditional morality is just a 'useful mistake'? Did the principle of 'the will to power' lead to the Holocaust? What are the limitations of scientific knowledge? Is human evolution complete or only beginning? It is difficult to overestimate the importance of Friedrich Nietzsche for our present epoch. 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 - which are famously enigmatic and often contradictory."Introducing Nietzsche" is the perfect guide to this exhilarating and oft-misunderstood philosopher.

This graphic guide provides an introduction to the philosophy of Nietzsche. In biographical format this book outlines how his thought processes changed over time, who his influences were, and where he eventually ended up. It is written in (somewhat) basic language so that even a non-philosophy major can appreciate it; however your standard philosophic terms are used so you may want to keep a dictionary close by. The graphics keep it interesting, and sometimes even humorous.
