Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The unorthodox life and ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche come alive in this documentary history. Here is a clear picture of the time in which this revolutionary philosopher lived and worked. We meet the luminaries of the age: Richard Wagner, Bismark, Freud and Darwin. We learn of Nietzsches famous love affairs, his theories of the Superman, the Antichrist and nihilism, as well as his impact on Twentieth Century thinking. And we see how the Nazis annexed and deformed Nietzsches thought to serve their purposes. Nietzsche For Beginners is an important introduction to modern philosophy. Plato, Kant, Hegel and Schopenhaur are all evaluated in light of their influence on Nietzsches work. Discover why this great thinker defiantly declared, “God is Dead.”

We also receive introductions to some of the great minds that preceded and shaped his writing. Luther, Schopenhauer, Hegel, and Kant. Sautet clarifies the individual philosophers and their contributions, making the book an important introduction to philosophy. Nietzche's famous ménage

About the Author

Marc Sautet (1947-1998) was a French writer, philosopher, teacher, and translator. In the early 90s he pioneered “Café philosophique,” an informal philosophizing movement that occurred in cafes throughout Paris, and eventually spread to other parts of Europe. He was also a Doctor of Philosophy at the Paris Institute of Political Studies, and the editor of German criticism of Friedrich Nietzsche. He died at the age 51 in Paris, France.
