Thought for the Day
“No journey is too great,
when one finds what one seeks.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
*Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Born October 15, 1844 Röcken bei Lützen, Prussia
Died August 25, 1900 (aged 55) Weimar, Saxony, German Empire
A 19th-century German philosopher and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism.
Nietzsche’s influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. His style and radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth have resulted in much commentary and interpretation, mostly in the continental tradition. His key ideas include the death of God, perspectivism, the Übermensch, the eternal recurrence, and the will to power.
