Near the end of the nineteenth century, Friedrich Nietzsche boldly announced that God is dead. There are no absolute truths, he said; the only reality is this world of life and death, conflict and change, creation and destruction. For centuries, religious ideas had given meaning to life in the western world; but with their collapse, humanity faced a grave crisis of nihilism and despair. Nietzsche proposed to replace restrictive traditional morals with the idea of humans as creative beings whose energy, strength, and intelligence enable them to give purpose and meaning to their lives.

An excellent introduction to the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche; the philosopher comes of much better than he does at the hands of many of authors whom I've read. Schacht shows that Nietzsche it not the nihilistic grouch that he is usually made to seem, but an optimistic, forward-looking thinker and dreamer.
