Nietzsche's Philosophy: Course Analysis

Good Essays
Philosophy, it is something that is taught in colleges all around the globe. Philosophy helps us understand the world around us more clearly. Personally it has helped me come out of my cocoon so to speak of a world that existed myself, and technology where if I didn’t know something all I had to do was Google it.

I believe that if he were here today, I believe that he would say that it is whatever you will it to be. In the most purest of sense, I quite find this to be somewhat true. If you will to be a philosopher than why not go and be one. But do not get that mixed up with your wants over your needs. If you want something sure, go after it.
