Friedrich Nietzsche. His life in Pictures and Documents

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) is the great, controversial philosopher whose ideas have influenced the 20th century in manifold ways. His theses have lost none of their provocation and will continue to be discussed in the years to come. While Nietzsche's work was thoroughly researched in the 1950's, the real life of this flamboyant figure, which ended in mental derangement, has remained obscure – despite an abundance of relics and a host of early photographs documenting the entire epoch. Published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Nietzsche's death, this pictorial documentation traces Nietzsche's life from day to day, bringing into focus the man behind the work: from his youth in a Naumburg parsonage to the university post in Basel and his mental breakdown in Turin to the bitter years of illness in Weimar. Compiled in the context of the large-scale Nietzsche exhibition organized by the Stiftung Weimarer Klassik, this book contains more than 7,000 photos and text fragments, chronologically ordered and individually referenced.
