A Moment of Calm

A Moment of Calm

“Nietzsche stayed in Sils-Maria during the summers of 1881 and 1883-1888. In Sils itself is Lake Sils, where the Chasté peninsula was a favorite site of Nietzsche’s – he fantasized about building a hermit’s hut.”

Don’t we all, sometimes?

The Bloomsbury Philosophy Blog has posted a few photos by Mark Anderson (Belmont), whose book, Plato and Nietzsche: Their Philosophical Art, has just been published. The above is a view of Lake Sils, which Nietzsche liked to visit. Other images and videos of Nietzsche’s favorite places are here. Photos that Anderson took of the site of Plato’s Academy and other sites around Athens are here. Take a moment and enjoy the views.
