  2. Politics

Managers resolve even the most complex issues with a two-by-two matrix or simple lists of steps. Most management books simplify the complicated world of business by providing attractive solutions with a high level of […]

Why is Nietzsche’s philosophy so cool? Well, first of all, it is quite controversial. Nietzsche applied himself to such topics as morality, ethics, religion, psychology, and social criticism.
