Abstract

This article is an attempt to show Nietzsche’s philosophy in the light of his biography – above all, his suffering from progressive syphilis, which led to his mental stupor. According to the author, the vocabulary and self-estimation in the works of Nietzsche from this period reveal a megalomania that is typical for people suffering from this disease.
