Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a famous and influential German philosopher.

Nietzsche is famous as a precursor of existentialism; his rejection of what he calls "slave morality" or altruism; his vigorous attacks on Christianity; his origination of the Übermensch? concept (translated as "Overman" or "Superman"); his embrace of a sort of irrationalism?; and something he called "the Will to Power", possibly best regarded as an early attempt at psychology.


The character of Superman has sometimes been said to be a popularization of Nietszche's concept of the [[Übermensch]].
