  1. From my perspective I can only say that I really enjoyed reading “The Genealogy of Morals.” For me reading Nietzsche is thought provoking and I found his opinions much more iconoclastic than any previous philosopher I have ever read (as directed both as the religious institution, thought and university).

    If there has to be a summary of what Nietzsche means to philosophy (and to a philosopher) it would have to be “influential” whether one likes it or not (and many people do not.)

    • Hi Cuz,
      I agree, Nietzsche is definitely iconoclastic, and he’s been very influential in the history of philosophy. But I don’t care for his nihilism and critiques of Christianity, which are way off base. He did have some good insights into human nature, though, like his idea of the will to power, which does ring true. While he seemed to be comfortable with that desire (the will to power), Christianity views it as a moral defect.
      Take care,

  2. Hi Cuz,

    No, I wasn’t there for these lectures.

    I just heard an interesting episode of the Philosopher’s Zone (from ABC radio Australia) on Nietzsche, that you might be interested in, which is found here:

    I’m not a big fan of Nietzsche’s philosophy personally, but he’s a very important figure in the history of philosophy, so it’s important to know some things about him.

    What’s your take on Nietzsche?
