European Icon Reassessed
German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche has been a totemic figure for the left and right, but what if his ideas have been wildly misunderstood by both?

A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche. Today she looks beyond the legends to get at the real man, in a conversation with Stuart Kelly.
