Friedrich Nietzsche 1844-1900

German philologist, philosopher, cultural critic, poet and composer
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( or 15 October 1844 - 25 August 1900) was a German philologist, philosopher, cultural critic, poet and composer.
He wrote several critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism.
Nietzsche's key ideas include the Apollonian/Dionysian dichotomy, perspectivism, the Will to Power, the "death of God", the Ubermensch and eternal recurrence.
Central to his philosophy is the idea of "life-affirmation", which involves questioning of any doctrine that drains one's expansive energies, however socially prevalent those ideas might be.
