When I picked up this series I thought it would concentrate on intensively on the various interpretation of the work of Friedrich Nietzsche but his course is actually more of comparison of a various philosopher ideas to Nietzsche ideas. This makes it an excellent general philosophy course rather than a course about Nietzsche.

the lecturer are more into presenting Nietzsche as superior philosopher and defending him of any clam that color his picture in bad way. There intense defense of him sometime result in contradicting argument about him.

The lecturer are not objective to the various interpretation for Nietzsche works and seem to think that there interpretation are the only true one.

None the less to be fair to them the course contain huge amount of philosophy about a different other philosopher and they give a decent back ground about the life of Friedrich Nietzsche

The performance of lecture style of presentation is generally good but it bit slow and lack a pit on the emotional side

In conclusion this course is good and deserves 3 out of 5
