Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher, poet and cultural critic. He is best known for his controversial idea of life affirmation that challenged traditional morality and all doctrines. Born in 1844 outside Leipzig, Germany, his teachings inspired people in all walks of life, from dancers and poets to psychologists and social revolutionaries. Here you will find extracts from his greatest works. The Life Lessons series from The School of Life takes a great thinker and highlights those ideas most relevant to ordinary everyday dilemmas. These books emphasise ways in which wise voices from the past have urgently important and inspiring things to tell us. This book is introduced and edited by John Armstrong, philosopher and author of In Search of Civilization and The School of Life book How to Worry Less About Money.

John Armstrong is a Scot but a long-term resident of Melbourne. He is a philosopher and author and his books include In Search of Civilization and The School of Life title How to Worry Less About Money.


A new series of books from Alain de Botton's School of Life does for Hobbes, Freud, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Byron and Bergson what de Botton's books have done for classical philosophers and Proust. They are short, snappy reads, reminiscent of Maria Popova's Brain Pickings blog - aphoristic digests from history's great minds New Statesman thoroughly welcoming and approachable ... If the six books in the Life Lessons series can teach even a few readers to pay passionate heed to the world - to notice things - they will have been un unquestionable success -- John Banville Prospect there is a good deal to be learned from these little primers Observer
