Nietzsche’s Attack on Free Will

The love of fate as an alternative to individualism

It is not uncommon to see Nietzsche’s name counted among the individualist philosophers. Online, the overlap between fans of Nietzsche and the fans of Max Stirner — the infamous egoist-anarchist — is very strong. Even in Academia, Nietzsche is seen as a forerunner of the existentialist movement, whose authors were primarily concerned with the individual coming to comprehend, and define, his or her subjective experience.
