Nietzsche argued that the ideal human being, the Ubermensch, would be able to channel passions creatively instead of suppressing them. Nietzsche's written works include Beyond Good and Evil and Thus Spake Zarathustra. Nietzsche is a major player in the Realm of Existentialism.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, b. Oct. 15, 1844, d. Aug. 25, 1900, was a German philosopher who, together with Soren Kierkegaard, shares the distinction of being a precursor of Existentialism. Nietzsche studied classics at the universities of Bonn and Leipzig, receiving his doctorate from the latter in 1869. Because Nietzsche had already published some philological articles, he was offered the chair of classical philology at the University of Basel in Switzerland before the doctorate was officially conferred on him.

In his first book, The Birth of Tragedy, Nietzsche presented a theory of Greek drama and of the foundations of art that has had profound effects on both literary theory and philosophy. In this book Nietzsche introduced his famous distinction between the Apollonian, or rational, element in human nature and the Dionysian, or passionate, element, as exemplified in the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysus.
