Friedrich Nietzsche was born near Leipzig in 1844. When he was only twenty-four he was appointed to the chair of classical philology at Basel University. Works published in the 1880s include The Gay Science, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, On the Genealogy of Morals, Twilight of the Idols, and The Antichrist. In January 1889, Nietzsche collapsed on a street in Turin and was subsequently institutionalized, spending the rest of his life in a condition of mental and physical paralysis. Works published after his death in 1900 include Will to Power, based on his notebooks, and Ecce Homo, his autobiography.

R. Kevin Hill is an associate professor of philosophy at Portland State University. He is the author of Nietzsche's Critiques: The Kantian Foundations of His Thought (2003) and Nietzsche: A Guide for the Perplexed (2007), and cotranslator of Nietzsche's The Will to Power.
