Despite I hardly know deep about Nietzsche’s work, in Hong Kong he was one of the most well-known philosopher, because of the Canton-Chinese pronunance is “nei choi” (尼采).
His most famous theories was “God is dead”, this idea to many is 1 of the most important general knowledge, no matter whether you known his idea in depth or not.
The first time I began to google him properly, was when I found out he shared the same birthday (not same year, but the date) with my favorite scholar, Michel Foucault. They were both known as genius and able to handle knowledge in multiple places such as art; prison; power & god. They both also shared a strong exclusion from the world nature, which led them to different paths that would bring them tragedy or troubles.
