Summary ë I Am Dynamite A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche 104 Tzsche wrote that all philosophy is autobiographical and in this vividly compelling myth shattering biography Sue Prideaux brings readers into the world of this brilliant eccentric and deeply troubled man illuminating the events and people that shaped his life and work From his placid devoutly Christian upbringing overshadowed by the mysterious death of his father through his teaching career lonely philosophizing on high mountains and heart breaking descent into madness Prideaux documents Nietzsche's intellec. A book like this needs to be composed like music All the elements must be gently pulled in so the main themes can shine through Prideaux accomplishes this with such great finesse Essentially this book has 3 main threads that she stays true to for the entire biography Chronology of Nietzsche s Life filled with colourful detailsAn Intellectual History of his Philosophical Development flooded with bookish detailsHistorical Context as it Relates to Nietzsche with the goal of setting the record straightWe can see Nietzsche develop from his early 20 s True to any young man this section of the book is the most lively and fastest to read The early pages are packed with books he read what he thought of them his keen friendship with Wagner his musical lifeNext the biography moves into his middle years where the intellectual development slows down but his private life certainly picks up He s essentially come into his own for what he believes in The rest reads like a well not a gossipy newspaper column He s still a great thinker Prideaux s writing still sings perhaps he s simply a man who fell in love And if this biography reads as beautifully as fiction our villain is clearly moving onto the chessboardThis final section is where I was rendered on the floor in emotional turmoil Again Prideaux s writing keeps the complex periods of history clear easy to read Which only emphasizes the tragedy of thoughts gone wrong These were an emotionally crippling couple of pages with exuisitely concise summaries of Nietzsche s final self published works She includes spoilers on these few pages if you consider lines like Descartes I Think Therefore I Am to be a spoilerThe final pages include Aphorisms as a great tribute Near year by year Chronology from 1844 1935Endnotes citing the sources little to no commentaryA pretty fun sounding Bibliography for book nerdsI d recommend this to fans of Nietzsche his naysayers most of all She reduces him back the mere man he wanted to be removing the legend that his sister painstakingly tried to build up As a result perhaps Nietzsche can finally become impish smile you have to read this book his works to find out My 1st Impressions Video filmed before I read this final review it gives a very brief update to the 1st Impressions less information than this written review

Summary ë I Am Dynamite A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche 104 Tual and emotional life with a novelist's insight and sensitivityShe also produces unforgettable portraits of the people who were most important to him including Richard and Cosima Wagner Lou Salom the femme fatale who broke his heart; and his sister Elizabeth a rabid German nationalist and anti Semite who manipulated his texts and turned the Nietzsche archive into a destination for Nazi ideologues I Am Dynamite is the essential biography for anyone seeking to understand history's most misunderstood philosoph. Nietzsche was the primary philosopher who inspired me to pursue the field Not that he offers a coherent belief system or ready to hand tools for life but he does provide the type of critical perspective necessary to begin uestioning one s life His thought has so much become a part of my own that whenever I revisit his works I find aphorisms that mirror my own dispositions in ways I never realized had sunk in I feel as do many who have been inspired by him an emotional connection with his thought given which he holds a dear place for me All that is to say that I was both anxious and apprehensive to read a biography on his personThe task of writing about the life of Nietzsche is not without its perils With a hankering after the irrational and revelry it is just as vital to capture the setting and atmosphere within which Nietzsche s thought developed so as to impress the mood that makes up such a part of Nietzsche s aesthetic Prideaux does a superb job in recreating the environment that so affected and afflicted this tormented thinker With Nietzsche s own penchant for colorful descriptions Prideaux works hard to maintain a similar flourish without becoming garish Nor can one write a biography of Nietzsche without addressing the philosophical thought that consumed him Prideaux adroitly weaves within the story of his life not only Nietzsche s own thought but that of the likes of Empedocles Kant Schopenhauer and in a manner that seems natural and easy to digest However I uestion Prideaux s choice to give synopses of Nietzsche s books particularly those after his Untimely Meditations Nietzsche s works are far too broad and nuanced to neatly sum up in a couple of pages and I fear that these sections may mislead the reader into false starts and premature conclusions about his worksWhat I find most commendable about this biography is that Prideaux does not mythologize unsubstantiated events in Nietzsche s life not even those considered pivotal nor speculate about them other than where it is further noted by contemporaries making up the primary sources consulted For example the time in which it is supposed that Nietzsche may have contracted syphilis is passingly commented upon with only a slight reference to Mann s grander allusions to it in his novel Doctor Faustus Rather the book is well researched and is composed with descriptive care to fill in the setting The historical facts are treated like a pre composed libretto needing only to be pieced together and then inlayed by the greater orchestral composition that is Prideaux s text I imagine that some may be critical of the divagations into other notable individual s lives such as Wagner and F rster but I found these to be sparse and refreshing Nietzsche lived during an exceptional time the Paris Commune the Franco Prussian War emergence of Symbolism etc and many of the individuals both greater and lesser known he was personally acuainted with As such I take these additions to be an asset to the whole in their providing important context to Nietzsche s acuaintance and reciprocating influence Incipit Tragoedia When Zarathustra was thirty years old he left his home and the Lake of Urmi and went into the mountains There he enjoyed his spirit and his solitude and for ten years did not weary of it But at last his heart changed begins aphorism 342 of The Gay Science The same could be said of that fateful day in Turin during the winter of 1889 Incipit Tragoedia when he finally went under and succumbed to the madness within which he would spend just over the next ten years His final decade of life is heartbreaking to read about and Prideaux spares no punches in defending his legacy with a detailed account of the misappropriations of his thought Some may be turned off by the pointed depiction of his sister Elisabeth s machinations but Nietzsche s legacy had ruthlessly been controlled by her and to dire purposes for decades after his death Prideaux does an excellent job documenting and debunking many false impressions that have been attributed to Nietzsche over the years without however denying that his thought does lend itself to such interpretation and abuse In terms of scholarship and engagement of style Prideaux s portrait is masterfully executed and artfully composed to the aim of defending Nietzsche s legacy as a philosopher of perhaps

Summary ë I Am Dynamite A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche 104 A groundbreaking new biography of philosophy's greatest iconoclast Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most enigmatic figures in philosophy and his concepts the bermensch the will to power slave morality have fundamentally reshaped our understanding of the human condition But what do most people really know of Nietzsche beyond the mustache the scowl and the lingering association with nihilism and fascism Where do we place a thinker who was eually beloved by Albert Camus Ayn Rand Martin Buber and Adolf HitlerNie. When asked for recommendations by those unversed in philosophy I most commonly recommend Plato and Nietzsche Both are enduringly popular Both are immediately accessible Though often misinterpreted both also describe the antipodes of Western philosophy the metaphysical and the anti metaphysical the classical religious and the modern secular idealsAs the Church has misappropriated Plato for its purposes so much of the abuse of Friedrich Nietzsche 1844 1900 stemmed from the decades of control of his estate by his racist sister Elisabeth 1846 1935 and her increasingly Nazi entourage This has been substantially rectified for American readers by the republication of his works unsullied by her self serving ministrations by such translators and biographers as W Kaufmann and RJ Hollingdale Now with S Prideaux s current biography such reconstructions of this man have attained a greater completenessWhile Kaufmann the one most responsible for the reintroduction of Nietzsche to the English reading public produced a magisterial biography of the philosopher in 1950 rev 1968 his emphasis was on the evolution of Nietzsche s writing and ideas Prideaux s particular virtue is in having provided a very readable and fully fleshed portrait of the man and those closest to him She is particularly strong in providing a lucid exposition of his intellectual development in relation to his physical condition and erotic life without thereby belittling either the man or his workWhere Prideaux is weak is in placing Nietzsche within his philosophical context neglecting I think his dependence via Schopenhauer and others on Kant But this is the objection of a philosophically inclined reader and hers is first and foremost a biography a very good one which should appeal to specialists and generalists alike
