Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 – 1900)

German Philosopher – Argued against society’s mediocrity – championing those people courageous enough to seize the moment and to become all that they are able to be – leading Nietzsche to the concept of the Ubermensch – the ‘Superman’ who lives by his or her own values, morals and beliefs in the pursuit of passion and power. His resurrection and reinterpretation of the ‘eternal recurrence’ – the idea that every moment that is lived is destined, ultimately, to be relived again and again for all eternity – has clear implications for the choices that determine our futures.
