In this beautifully written account, Julian Young provides the most comprehensive biography available today of the life and philosophy of the nineteenth-century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Young deals with the many puzzles created by the conjunction of Nietzsche's personal history and his work: Why the son of a Lutheran pastor developed into the self-styled "Antichrist"; why this archetypical Prussian came to loath Bismarck's Prussia; and why this enemy of feminism preferred the company of feminist women. Setting Nietzsche's thought in the context of his times -- the rise of Prussian militarism, anti-Semitism, Darwinian science, the "Youth" and emancipationist movements, as well as the "death of God" -- Young emphasizes the decisive influence of Plato and of Richard Wagner on Nietzsche's attempted reform of Western culture. He also describes the devastating effect on Nietzsche's personality of his unhappy love for Lou Salom and attempts to understand why, at the age of forty-four, he went mad. This book includes a selection of over thirty photographs of Nietzsche, his friends and his work sites, as well as a CD containing seventeen of the philosopher's musical compositions, which are key to a deeper understanding of his intellectual project.

His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
