"God is dead. And we have killed him." These notorious words were written by the 19th century German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. Through his brilliant and explosive writings, he became known as a severe critic of religion and conventional morality. Nietzsche's work is full of pointed aphorisms and dramatic fables and have been eagerly read by generations of students. His philosophy and social criticism still resonate in the 21st century.
