IN NIETZSCHE"S FOOTSTEPS by Jonathan R. Cohen

A thrilling, vicarious journey through Friedrich Nietzsche’s favorite haunts, “In Nietzsche’s Footsteps” walks us through an earnest discussion and pragmatic reflection on elements of Nietzsche’s biography and philosophical discoveries throughout the philosopher’s journeys. 

The book’s title is meant in two senses. On the one hand, an effort was made to walk the very same sidewalks and mountain paths Nietzsche explored. On the other, the author allows us to reflect on the contrast between Nietzsche’s philosophy of individualism and the need for humanity to integrate this individualism into a community.

From Nice, France to Turin, Italy and Sils-Maria, Switzerland, we examine parts of Nietzsche’s biography and reflect on some central ideas of his philosophy, enacting a Hegelian dialectic and exploring the ways in which our culture may or may not have followed in his footsteps as well.

In a book that will appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike, Nietzsche’s philosophical ideas and struggles are presented in contexts that are easily understood and related to the question of what it is to live a meaningful, fulfilling life, both as an individual and within the context of family.
