Editorial 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.

Publisher's Summary

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 and many have sought to discredit his work. 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 eventful childhood on his beliefs, Wicks demonstrates that, far from being a nihilist, Nietzsche offers a positive and life-affirming understanding of human nature.

Complicated

It's a tough listen, mostly because of terrible sound quality. The speakers "s" sounds were extremely loud and the rest of the word was very low. This needs to be equalised.

Other than that it's an ok read, it does seem all over the place, especially when you listen because there's little indication as to when the reader is quoting a paragraph of text from a different document.
