 Friedrich Nietzsche
Nietzsche refers to this higher mode of being as "superhuman" (übermenschlich), and associates the doctrine of eternal recurrence -- a doctrine for only the healthiest who can love life in its entirety -- with this spiritual standpoint, in relation to which all-too-often downhearted, all-too-commonly-human attitudes stand as a mere bridge to be crossed and overcome.
Alternatively, Nietzsche philosophizes from "the perspective of life" which he regards as "beyond good and evil," and challenges the deeply-entrenched moral idea that exploitation, domination, injury to the weak, destruction and appropriation are universally objectionable behaviors.
Nietzsche became especially influential in French philosophical circles during the 1960's-1980's, when his "God is dead" declaration, his perspectivism, and his emphasis upon power as the real motivator and explanation for people's actions revealed new ways to challenge established authority and launch effective social critique.

 F(r)iend Nietszche? - J.D. Casten   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Nietzsche wears his influence from other philosophers in a new way; rather than subsuming or destroying their explanatory systems with a new one, he draws upon them for a repertoire of critical strategies.
Nietzsche's preference for the lone predator over "the herd" or the vegetable is completely inexplicable-- one may postulate the projection of a loner attempting to justify himself.
Nietzsche has to admit that the "truth" of the will to power, or any other schematics of purposive force, such as the desire for reproduction, are metaphorically severed from the concrete.

 Nietzsche
Influences on Nietzsche: Nietzsche's philosophy was influenced by Greek culture, (particularly the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle) the theory of evolution, by Schopenhauer and by his friendship with the German composer Richard Wagner, although he would spend the latter part of his life attempting to distance himself from the latter two.
Nietzsche also writes here that "all histories are worthy of destruction" yet, we know from the flaws of the monumental history that Nietzsche does not actually hold that man should become ahistorical, or mythological.
Nietzsche, who was not acquainted with the work of Kierkegaard, influenced subsequent existentialist thought through his criticism of traditional metaphysical and moral assumptions and through his espousal of tragic pessimism and the life-affirming individual will that opposes itself to the moral conformity of the majority.

This is the secret of the Hamlet melancholy which Nietzsche in his great mind in such sharp sighted and extremely striking way recognized, although the exact connection (from the state of the Bacon-Shakespeare inquiry in that day) could not be so clear to him as is the case today.

Nietzsche had to use a vanity press in order to publish most of his works.
This is compounded by the fact that few actually read Nietzsche's works themselves, content to read what others say about him (and this is not helped by the dearth of Nietzsche's writings on the Web, which is rapdily becoming many people's primary source of information).

To the popular mind, Nietzsche is best-known as the iconoclastic philosopher of 'nihilism' who proclaimed "God is dead", and erected the "Superman" as the meaning and goal of life.
Nietzsche is also commonly identified as the thinker who went "beyond good and evil" in the name of a "transvaluation of all values", culminating in an affirmation of the "will to power" and "eternal recurrence".
Rejecting the prevalent view that Nietzsche's early writings are significant only in relation to his 'mature' philosophy, Quentin Taylor has written the first full-length study of Nietzsche's early philosophy.

Nietzsche thought that no moral belief system could be objectively true or false, not even his own beliefs about morality.

 Existentialism
"God is dead...and He died of pity." For Nietzsche, religion emerged in order to bring comfort and consolation to weak people lacking courage to create their own values.
A quote from Nietzsche: "Don't believe those who speak to you of super-terrestrial hopes...they are poisoners, whether they know it or not." Thus Nietzsche grounds religion in the human needs of the insecure person.
Although Nietzsche was openly hostile to Christianity and religion in general, despised Christian virtues, ridiculed theology and and the metaphysical systems of others, he indulged in a theoretical system of his own, which revived the Greek notion of the eternal recurrence of all things.

 Edward Champion’s Return of the Reluctant » Who is Brian Leiter (And Who Really Cares) and Why Did He ...
I think Leiter is confusing the act of reviewing a biography (which does, after all, concern itself with a subject and his personal details first) with the act of summing up a man’s philosophy.
Leiter suggests that Vollmann “bizarrely ascribes” a “realism” to Nietzsche and suggests that Nietzsche does not hold the view that “cruelty is innate,” complaining that Vollmann fails to cite a specific passage.
Given people’s propensity to make Nietzsche’s ideas suit their needs (far moreso than with other philosophers), I think it was better the Vollmann didn’t use his review space expounding on Nietzsche’s ideas.

 Frederich Nietzsche | culturekitchen
I've been thinking a lot about Friedrich Nietzsche and two of his books, Beyond Good and Evil and Gay Science.
Nietzsche has always been critized for being some sort of a brutal philosopher but I've never in all the years I have been reading his books thought about him as being brutal to be cruel.
The Gay Science is a book written way before the word gay became synonymous with homosexuality; yet I've always found it interesting that Nietzsche used the term as synonymous to queer.

A touching and sad novel, at once a compelling love story, philosophical text, and dialogue with Frederich Nietzsche -- The Unbearable Lightness of Being is all of these and more, perhaps most importantly a manifesto of embracing nihilism.
Milan Kundera opens the novel with a discourse on Nietzsche's doctrine of the eternal recurrence.
Kundera rejects Nietzsche's optimism and in compelling detail and poignancy he give us the story of the painful love affair of Tomas and Tereza, condemned by fate and choice to live together, yet never ceasing to cause each other enormous pain and suffering.

This includes the most elementary thinker and not just the intellectual philosopher as Frederich Nietzsche pointed out in his works such as On Truth Lies In A Nonmoral Sense and Beyond Good and Evil.
It was in these works that Nietzsche dismisses the former notions of truth in the past from great thinkers like Descartres while he also offers another possibility for humans.
This extermination is nothing but neurotics, however, in light of Nietzsche’s concept of truth in a nonmoral sense.
