Friedrich Nietzsche

Curtis Cate’s new biography, written for the layperson rather than the academic, goes far towards clarifying Nietzsche’s ideas and the reactions they elicited. The author does equal justice to the musical as well as philosophical influences to which Nietzsche was subjected, the subtle workings of his incomparable mind, and the accurate physical suffering he combated from his adolescence until his mental collapse of January, 1889.
