More About the Author

Roy was born in Liverpool and attended the same school as Paul McCartney and George Harrison but not, it should be stressed, at the same time. He is now a Reader in Philosophy of Religion at the University of Gloucestershire in Cheltenham (not that different from Liverpool really). Roy has previously lectured in Philosophy and Religion at various universities, including Kent, Durham, and King's College London. He has a doctorate from the University of Kent and a PGCE from Roehampton University. He specialises in Philosophy of Religion, Nietzsche, and contemporary Islamic thought in relation to ethics, philosophy and politics and has written a number of books on Nietzsche, Plato, Philosophy of Religion, and Islam. More recently he has published Fifty Key Figures in Islam (Routledge 2006), Nietzsche and Islam (Routledge 2007), Mawdudi and Political Islam (Routledge 2010), and The God of Philosophy: 2nd Edition (Acumen, 2011). As someone who left school at 15 and realised later on the importance of education, Roy writes a number of books that aim to guide the uninitiated into the complex realms of philosophy and religion and he also gives talks at schools and colleges to promote the importance of the subject.

A good overview 20 Jun. 2010
By David Solimano - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read many works of Nietzsche, but I was having some trouble keeping all of the different ideas in my head at once. This book provides a brief discussion of the main points of Nietzsche's life and several varying interpretations for each of his main ideas. It is not a substitute for reading the works themselves by any means, but it is a useful framework and refresher. I would have appreciated some more depth, but then it wouldn't have really been an introductory text anymore.
