The life and work of Friedrich Nietzsche - Telephone dial in session

Ref: C3531508

Friedrich Nietzsche is one the most important thinkers of the last 150 years, having a huge influence in areas as diverse as psychology, literature, art and politics. His adoption by national socialism as the 'unofficial philosopher' of Nazism to the re-discovery of his works post-WW2 in America, by the Jewish academic Walter Kaufmann, as the philosopher of anti-nationalism, life-affirmation and ultimately 'anti-philosophy'. Nietzsche marks a turning point in C.20th thinking, pre-figuring many of the ideas and critiques in the psychoanalytical movement, post-modernism and populist politics that have come to signify C.21st life.
