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.



Laurence Gane read Philosophy at UCL and King’s College, London. He now lives in Snowdonia and runs a recording studio. Piero is an artist and graphic designer whose work has twice been included in the Royal College of Art’s ‘The Best of British Illustration’.
