Friedrich Nietzsche was one a German classical scholar, philosopher, and critic of culture who went on to become one of the most influential of all modern thinkers. Nietzsche rose to fame for his writings on good and evil, the end of religion in modern society and the concept of a ‘super-man’. His writings on individuality and morality in contemporary civilization influenced many thinkers and writers of the 20th century. Though Nietzsche career spanned briefly, he published numerous works in philosophy in the short duration, two of the most prominent of which include ‘Twilight of the Idols’ and ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’. In his work, Nietzsche attempted to unmask the motives that underlie traditional Western religion, morality and philosophy that has deeply affected generations of theologians, philosophers, psychologists, poets, novelists, and playwrights. This probably is the reason as to why his work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history. Nietzsche's body of writing spanned across philosophical polemics, poetry, cultural criticism, and fiction, and drew widely on art, philology, history, religion, and science. The same can also be seen in his quotes that touch all the aforementioned genres and give readers a new perspective from which to look at.
