Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher. He is regarded as one of the first existentialists. At the age of thirty-four, he retired from his post as professor of classical philology and for the next ten years led a nomadic existence. He wrote his best-known works during this period, including Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, and On the Genealogy of Morals. He died in 1900.
