Near the end of the nineteenth century, Friedrich Nietzsche boldly announced that God is dead. There are no absolute truths, he said; the only reality is this world of life and death, conflict and change, creation and destruction. For centuries, religious ideas had given meaning to life in the western world; but with their collapse, humanity faced a grave crisis of nihilism and despair. Nietzsche proposed to replace restrictive traditional morals with the idea of humans as creative beings whose energy, strength, and intelligence enable them to give purpose and meaning to their lives.

The Giants of Philosophy series is a collection of dramatic presentations, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world’s great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

    " I believe that every intelligent and educated individual who is questioning and analyzing the given order in our contemporary society, in science and nature, must familiarize himself with the philosophy of Freidrich Niezsche. The author of this book, Dr. Schacht gave an interesting general outline and explanations for the basic concepts of one of the great minds in philosophy. The author actually induces the interest and desire to read Niezsche's books. The only thing that irritated me in the beginning of this audiobook is the citations from Niezsche are made with strong and peculiar German pronunciation what seems rather artificial. "
