Welcome to The Nietzsche Podcast! In this first episode, we introduce Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), through the passage, "How the True World Finally Became a Fable", from his book, The Twilight of Idols. In this passage, Nietzsche sketches the history of a particular error in Western philosophy: the error of metaphysics. Nietzsche establishes himself as an anti-metaphysical philosopher, who is against all doctrines of a "True World" that lies beyond our own. In this episode, we touch upon the ideas and historical context of Plato, Descartes, Kant, Schopenhauer, and others. INCIPT ZARATHUSTRA!
