An audio version of Bertrand Russell’s book The History of Western Philosophy. “It does not occur to Nietzsche as possible that a man should genuinely feel universal love, obviously because he himself feels almost universal hatred and fear, which he would fain disguise as lordly indifference. His ‘noble’ man - who is himself in day-dreams - is a being wholly devoid of sympathy, ruthless, cunning, cruel, concerned only with his own power. King Lear, on the verge of madness, says: ‘I will do such things-What they are yet I know not—but they shall be The terror of the earth.’ This is Nietzsche’s philosophy in a nutshell.”
