Nietzsche: A Philosophical Biography is certainly not as groundbreaking as was Safranski's earlier book Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil; nor is it as philosophically interesting and rigorous as Safranski's Schopenhauer and the Wild Years of Philosophy. Still, it gives us a compelling picture of Nietzsche as the ethical self-fashioner--the individual "standing all alone at the shore in front of an immense horizon of sky and sea." As Safranski depicts him, "Nietzsche was the monk at sea. He always had immensity in view and was always prepared to let thinking be submerged in the indeterminable and to reemerge with new attempts at configuration. . . . There is no point of arrival in Nietzsche's philosophy, no outcome, and no end result. There is only the will to an unceasing adventure in thinking" (34950).
