Brad Feld: “Friedrich Nietzsche is the Patron Philosopher of Today’s Entrepreneurs”
Something Ventured -- Silicon Valley Podcast
Brad Feld’s latest book (with David Jilk) is “Entrepreneur’s Weekly Nietzsche (A Book for Disruptors)”. Those familiar with Brad’s “Feld Thoughts” blog, will find the unexpected title – unsurprising. While reading Nietzsche (um, yes) Brad noted that his favorite personality was a “free spirit: An obsessed individual with a vision of the future and the will to make it so, a rebel who creates the future with childlike enthusiasm.” That, thought Brad, sounded a lot like…an entrepreneur. The book is “a modern Art of War, connecting the dots to our high-tech business environment”. Each short chapter takes a quote from Nietzsche and applies it to an area of entrepreneurship. Brad Feld has been a famous venture capitalist for a long time. He has been an early stage investor and entrepreneur since 1987. He currently runs Foundry group, which he co-founded. Before that Brad co-founded Mobius Venture Capital and, prior to that, founded Intensity Ventures. Brad is also a co-founder of Techstars. Brad is a writer and speaker on the topics of venture capital investing and entrepreneurship. He’s written a number of books as part of the Startup Revolution series and writes the blogs “Feld Thoughts” and “Venture Deals”. https://somethingventured.us/ https://feld.com/
I was interested in the morality challenging ideals of this philosopher and i haven't been disappointed. He's an unusual thinker and has lots of interesting thoughts and quotes to learn from. I might not agree with the man but the unusual stuff he has claimed in his literature definitely gets you thinking.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Ayn Rand, and Anton Szandor LaVey
A Satanist Reads the Bible
I find that LaVey’s ideas clearly fall in line with those that were either exclusive to Rand or shared between her and Nietzsche, and this is the thesis that I’ll be defending in this essay.

Close Reed #12: Friedrich Nietzsche - On the Uses and Disadvantages of History for Life
The Reeds Podcast
Three out of four Reeds members discuss Nietzsche's essay on the use and abuse of history. Nietzsche begins by claiming that history studied in and for itself, as objectively as possible, is a dangerous and corrosive enterprise. History ought to 'serve life', to direct cultures, and to be an individual's guide to action. We discuss the three types of history he outlines which serve life (monumental, antiquarian, critical), and the ways in which Nietzsche claims that the objective-scientific history of his day (and ours as well) has weakened modern man's personality, leading to cultural and personal degradation. We also spend some time at the end trying to figure out what Nietzsche means by truth.
In E 54 I try and grapple with re-reading 19th century philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche during lockdown and what we might be able to take from his readings and ideas. An exercise in folly? who knows....could very well be. Is he a heavy metal hero? certainly early 90s metal adopted many of his catch phrases, 'God is Dead' among many! T-shirt slogans abound!

Friedrich Nietzsche on Health, Wellness & Performance (Professor John Kaag - Episode #157)
Health, Wellness & Performance Coaching
What if we could interview Friedrich Nietzsche about health, wellness & performance? The well-known philosopher famous for "That which does not kill us makes us stronger" or "The higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly" or even "He who has a WHY to live can bear almost any HOW." Nietzsche died in the year 1900, but Professor John Kaag has a solid sense of Nietzsche's perspective on all things health, wellness & performance. Professor Kaag wrote a fascinating book "Hiking with Nietzsche", which is about "defeating complacency, balancing sanity and madness, and coming to grips with the unobtainable". In this interview, we dive into philosophical views on what made Nietzsche tick and what that means for us as health & wellness coaches and high performers looking to make the most of their lives.

"God is dead." This is his challenge to the optimism of the 19th century which pretended that religion and metaphysics were real but in fact were killed by science. Europe had lost the guidance which sustained it in past centuries. Higher spiritual values were replaced by the philistine and the mediocre.
