Madness According To Nietzsche

Madness was a subjective and relative term according to the German philosopher.

He wrote about madness being found in prayer, love and a personal response towards life. A madhouse or asylum, according to him, was filled with people who were not really mad, but just like himself, different from what the society deems as normal.
