In this wonderful article “Nietzsche: The Lightning Fire” Tamsin Shaw reviews "The Flame of Eternity: An Interpretation of Neitzsche’s Thought” by Krzystof Michalski. It is a powerful analysis of Nietzsche as the poet-philosopher who brilliantly understood the power of emotions in revealing ultimate truths. It takes a look at some of the apocalyptic themes in Nietzsche, art and religion and how the juxtaposition of polarising ideas has been used to lead to profound insights into reality.
The late, great, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote: "I know my lot. Some day my name will be linked to the memory of something monstrous, of a crisis as yet unprecedented on earth"
