An exciting new series of books exploring the life,
times and ideas of the world's greatest thinkers.
Ideas don't come from nowhere. So we asked our authors to look at the lives and cultural influences of some towering intellectuals – as well as their most ground-breaking ideas – to see how it all fits together.
Not only that, but we have deconstructed their academic jargon into plain English, so you don't have to...
"Where the book really excels is in presenting some of the big theses that Nietzsche presents in his works. Whilst there is still much disagreement in the world of Philosophy over what exactly Nietzsche was trying to say, Dixon does a great job of presenting three of the key themes of Nietzsche’s work with both clarity and accuracy. I would highly recommend this book to anyone getting into Philosophy or anyone who just wants to learn more about one of the most misunderstood figures in modern Philosophy."
