Nietzsche For The 21st Century (A Talk By Sue Prideaux)

Nietzsche wrote that all philosophy is autobiographical, and in her vividly compelling, myth-shattering biography, Sue Prideaux brings readers into the world of this brilliant, eccentric, and deeply troubled man, illuminating the events and people that shaped his life and work. From his placid, devoutly Christian upbringing—overshadowed by the mysterious death of his father—through his teaching career, lonely philosophizing on high mountains, and heart-breaking descent into madness, Prideaux will discuss central elements of Nietzsche’s intellectual and emotional life.

She will also explore how Nietzsche's sister Elizabeth, a rabid German nationalist and anti-Semite, manipulated his texts and turned the Nietzsche archive into a destination for Nazi ideologues.
Prideaux will offer a new and refreshing perspective on history’s most misunderstood philosopher.
