Why I Am so Clever by Friedrich Nietzsche

nietzsche-cleverWhat is wrong with Friedrich Nietzsche? Probably a great deal. But in this little book, a pamphlet really, you get a pretty keen insight into the problems that being Friedrich Nietzsche throw up: his intellectual arrogance is appalling, even amusing. It is interesting as a brief look at the frayed edges of his philosophy: putting the particular before the general, the physical before the abstract and cultural, for example how climate and diet are important determiners of culture and modes of thought. Nietzsche was not a fan of Christianity either, nor of his own readers, his fellow Germans, nor pretty much anyone alive in his time, excepting maybe Wagner. Weird.
