In Nietzsche's Footsteps is a fascinating, vicarious journey through Nietzsche's favorite haunts: Nice, France; Turin, Italy; and Sils Maria, Switzerland. Within the author's personal reflection lies a pragmatic rumination on the many aspects of Nietzsche's philosophy that arise throughout the voyage. What does it mean to remain an individual while nurturing the bonds that make life worth living, chiefly those we have with family? Along the way, we explore this quandary as well as the foundational elements of Nietzsche's philosophy, considering the ways in which our own culture may or may not have followed in his ever-reverberating footsteps.

In a book that will appeal to academics and enthusiasts alike, Nietzsche's complex philosophical ideas are accessibly framed as they arise in the day-to-day, so that we may tackle the question of what it is to lead a meaningful life, both as individuals and alongside those we love.

JONATHAN R. COHEN is a professor of philosophy at the University of Maine Farmington. His first book was Science, Culture, and Free Spirits: A Study of Nietzsche's Human, All-Too-Human (Humanity Books, 2010), and his next project concerns Nietzsche's philosophy of music. With their four kids currently scattered up and down the East Coast, together he and his wife maintain a stretch of the Appalachian Trail.
