Nietzsche

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (Röcken, 15 ottobre 1844 – Weimar, 25 agosto 1900) è stato un filosofo, poeta, saggista, compositore e filologo tedesco. Considerato tra i massimi filosofi e scrittori di ogni tempo, ebbe un’influenza controversa, ma indiscutibile, sul pensiero filosofico, letterario, politico e scientifico del mondo occidentale nel XX secolo.
La sua filosofia, in parte riconducibile al filone delle filosofie della vita, considerata da alcuni uno spartiacque fra la filosofia tradizionale e un nuovo modello di riflessione, informale e provocatorio.
Un pensatore unico nel suo genere, sì da giustificare l’enorme influenza da lui esercitata sul pensiero posteriore.
