Are last Nietzsche books really his works?
5 February 2020 | by johnpierrepatrickSee all my reviews

The topic is big: are the later Nietzsche books really Nietzsche works? Nietzsche had indeed succumbed to insanity and these books come in contradiction with previous works / opinion he could express. This documentary investigates about the role of Nietzsche sister, a known antisemitic, that took care of her brother once he was declared insane and without road to recovery. During that period (1889-1900), publication of books did not stop at all, culminating with "The will to power", with this sister playing a key role and corrupting Nietzsche intended work.

The making is not at the same height as the topic and unfortunately fail to embark you fully in the investigation.
