Nietzsche’s Urbanised Icon by Gaynor Evelyn Sweeney and Tony Knox.
Sweeney and Knox through their independents research of genetic intervention of the body and the concept of the post modern hero respectively will collaboratively explore in a contemporary socio-urban context the fundamental philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche. Nietzsche is famous for his rejection of what he calls “slave morality” (which he felt reflected the inverse of the “will to power” and a perversion of useful altruism); his attacks on Christianity (a character in one of his works declared that “God is dead”); his origination of the Übermensch concept (translated as “Overman” or “Superman”) in only one of his books; his embrace of a sort of a-rationalism; and something he called “the Will to Power” (Wille zur Macht).
