Nietzsche: Bolinda Beginner Guides | [Robert Wicks]

Nietzsche: Bolinda Beginner Guides

A deeply divisive figure, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900) remains an enigma to this day. Infamous for his startling assertion that "God is dead", he is often misrepresented. In this illuminating account of Nietzsche's life and work, Robert Wicks skilfully navigates the controversy that continues to surround one of today’s most famous but least understood thinkers. Exploring the impact of Nietzsche's Christian upbringing and his childhood on his beliefs, Wicks demonstrates that, far from being a nihilist, Nietzsche offers a positive and understanding of human nature.

Audible Editor Reviews

Author Robert Wicks provides a concise introduction to Nietzsche's philosophy. In this audiobook Wicks examines Nietzsche's rupture with God, but perhaps more interestingly, he examines the philosopher's positive outlook on life. Wicks' analysis of Nietzsche's life and works exceeds expectations and clears up some of the misconceptions surrounding Nietzsche's legacy. This recording is perfect for listeners who want to learn about Nietzsche's influence without being intimidated by the grandiosity of the subject. Richard Aspel's narration is energetic, and his enthusiasm for the subject is contagious to the audience.
