Why I find Nietzsche so compelling (and you should too)
I’m currently reading Camus’ The Myth of Sisyphus (and writing about it on my Substack), but Nietzsche is likely my next author to explore. I love what you said about how he straddles both the individual and collective dimensions with his work and agree that this is essential to any philosophical theory that hopes to gain or share comprehensive understanding of existence and human behavior. Self does not exist in a vacuum, although we can easily become trapped in unconscious narratives that make it seem so. Great article and audio, thank you. As a reader of Nietzsche, which of his books would you recommend I start with?
We could not explain when girl friends told us to let us never talk about Nietzche again". But we might have told her the man is a great writer. And therefore not without compassion.
