Summary:

With Friedrich Nietzsche, philosophy was dangerous not only for philosophers but for everyone. Nietzsche ultimately went mad, but his ideas presaged a collective madness that had horrific consequences in Europe in the early 1900s. Though his philosophy is more one of aphorisms and insights than a system, it is brilliant, persuasive, and incisive. His major concept is the will to power, which he saw as the basic impulse for all our acts. Christianity he saw as a subtle perversion of this concept-thus Nietzsche's famous pronouncement, 'God is dead.'
In Nietzsche in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Nietzsche's life and ideas and explains their influence on man's struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Nietzsche's work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Nietzsche within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

Genres:

  • Eric Silverstein

    Could have been Nietzsche in 90 seconds. Don't bother...

  • Lee Detzel

    As a philosophy student I appreciated the concise introduction to Nietzsche's work and life presented in this audiobook. Of course, all summarization miss important details and thoughts of deep thinkers, but this audiobook is still worth the listen.
