German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche was highly influential in 20th Century philosophical thought. This paper examines some of Nietzsche's ideas, including the term 'nihilism' which he coined and his concepts of 'Superman' and 'Last Man'. The paper looks at Nietzsche's views on Socrates and how his ideas relate to those of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Karl Marx.
From the Paper:"Another important factor for the victory of this "slave morality" was the fact that it was claimed to be the only true morality. Absoluteness is essential to philosophical as well as religious ethics. Undermining the absolute character of this type of morality was the insidious and most notable work of nihilism. Judeo-Christianity was dying because it could no longer mange to make people believe in the absoluteness of traditional morality. "God is dead" because people manifest an ever-growing optimism towards science and technology and the benefits they bring to everyday life."
