After his novels on Schopenhauer and Spinoza, Irwin Yalom’s ‘When Nietzsche Wept‘ was another intriguing gem. Reading the great thinker’s ideas in a different context – fictional encounter between Nietzsche and Breuer – appeals to readers interested in both philosophy and psychology.
‘Did you live your life or were you lived by it? Did you choose it or did it choose you?’ … questions we all sometimes ponder over. A novel about the confrontation and avoidance of one’s greatest fears and weaknesses. And inner struggles.
