When Nietzsche Wept

When Nietzsche Wept / Όταν έκλαψε ο Νίτσε

When Nietzsche Wept is a 1992 novel by Irvin D. Yalom, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University, an existentialist, and psychotherapist.¨

The book takes place mostly in Vienna, Austria in the late 19th century. It starts with Dr. Josef Breuer sitting in a cafe in Venice, Italy waiting for Lou Salome, who was involved with Friedrich Nietzsche. She has written a letter stating that the future of the philosophy of Germany is at stake.

 Yalom's book is fictional but contains many references to history and historical persons: Josef and Mathilde Breuer, Friedrich Nietzsche, Lou Salome, Sigmund Freud, Bertha Pappenheim, Paul Rée as well as mentioning Franz Overbeck, and the composer Richard Wagner.
