Nietzsche and the Will to Power

A tale told by an idiot… or Three! The Trio give you their take on Nietzsche. Supposedly, there's serious "bank" in the field of Nietzsche scholarship... of which bank the Trio have taken exactly NO part. They try to give Nietzsche's idea of the Will to Power a fair shake. Also featuring: The Will to Knowledge, and the Will to Simplify, with guest appearances by Gilles Deleuze, the Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and C.G. Jung, and Sigmund Freud.

"Jung is the Queen, and Nietzsche and Freud are Rooks. If you misunderstand Nietzsche for me it's like losing a Rook on the chessboard. Same with Freud, but if you misunderstand Jung, it's like losing a Queen… I could theoretically give up Nietzsche under certain circumstances to save Jung."

The show ends with an elegant description of the philosophy of Elitism - it's really profound.
