I say this with no exaggeration: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche is the philosopher that saved my life.

When I hit rock bottom a few years ago, his books and ideas pulled me back from the abyss. They answered all the questions that my religion, culture, and social customs cannot answer. Beyond Good and Evil is the gateway drug that brought me into philosophy, and I've been fascinated by this subject since then.

Thanks for this article, Steven.
