Nietzsche's Life
Philosophical Importance
Beyond Good and Evil

From the Paper:

"Nietzsche was born in Rocken bei Lutzen, which is southwest of Leipzig and dominated by farmlands, on the 15th of October of 1844. His grandfathers were ministers in the Lutheran Church, and his father was Rocken's town minister. When Nietzsche was very young, his father passed away from an ailment of the brain, and his younger brother died only six months after that. After this took place, he moved away to another town, Naumburg an der Saale, where he lived for the next eight years, sharing space with not only his mother but his grandmother, his younger sister, and two aunts.
"He went on to boarding school after that, and then on to the University of Bonn, where he studied both biblical and classical texts and found himself very interested in what they had to say. At twenty-three he entered military service, which was required. He was injured, put on sick leave, and eventually went back to the University after the wound he had suffered did not heal properly."
