Vehement repudiation of Christian and liberal ethics; the detestation of democratic ideals; the celebration of the "superman"; the death of God; and a life-affirming "will to power" are the philosophical legacies of Friedrich Nietzsche. In this program, world-renowned author and professor Bryan Magee and Nietzsche philosopher J. P. Stern discuss these concepts as the genesis of existentialism, and as the root philosophies of fascist political movements.
