Summer of 1881, Sils Maria, Switzerland: Friedrich Nietzsche prepares to go on a walk on which something momentous will occur. With lightness and humour, Thomas Hürlimann tells the story of that walk; and Nietzsche’s footsteps lead us into the mountainous terrain of Western philosophy and into the abysses and wonders of human existence. Amongst the cast of historical characters are Nietzsche’s red umbrella and a stray cat from whom one can learn a great deal. A beautiful, moving text which shows us how alive philosophy, and how philosophical – that is, astonishing – our life can be.
