Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

1844 - 1900

German philosopher and poet whose wide-ranging theories of morality and human behaviour have been some of the most influential of the past centuries

Both a philosopher and a poet, who was appointed a professorship at an alarmingly early age. In 1889 he suffered from ill health and resigned from this position after a mental breakdown, from which he never properly recovered. He wrote about many ideas, though the most famous are the avowal of the Superhuman, the doctrine of power, and the dismissal of Christian morality as the morality of a slave.
