Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)  was a German philosopher. Nietzsche began his career as a philologist. The University of Basel appointed him (aged 24) as professor of classical philology, but he resigned in 1879 due to health problems. His writing included critiques of religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy, and science. In 1889 he suffered a mental collapse, probably of syphilitic origin. Nietzsche lived the remainder of his life as an invalid under the care of his mother and sister, until his death in 1900. Nietzsche's works have a distinctive style, tending more to the aphoristic and to the paradoxical than did standard contemporary philosophic treatises. Recognition of Nietzsche's importance increased during the first half of the 20th century. The German Nazi Party exploited his work, but many today believe that this came about through selective readings and dubious interpretations. Despite or because of this posthumous association with Nazism, by the second half of the 20th century Nietzsche gained a reputation as a significant figure in modern philosophy, and his influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. Biography:Youth (1844 – 1869) Nietzsche. Born on October 15, 1844, Nietzsche lived in the small town of Röcken, near Leipzig, in the Prussian province of Saxony.
