ABOUT THE BOOK
In Nietzsche’s Footsteps is a philosophical travel memoir. A thrilling, vicarious journey provides the setting for an earnest discussion and pragmatic reflection on elements of Nietzsche’s biography and philosophy. In particular, the book wrestles with the contrast between Nietzsche’s philosophy of individualism–which goes hand in hand with his own isolated life, and the author’s life as a family man. Along the way we share parts of Nietzsche’s biography and reflect on some central ideas of his philosophy, including ways in which our culture may or may not have followed in his footsteps as well.
