Evidence

[Muir undertook "intense study of Nietzsche"] ""I tried, when I came to Nietzsche"s last works, "The Twilight of the Idols" and "Ecce Homo", to ignore the fact that they were tinged with madness... I adopted the watchword of "intellectual honesty", and in its name committed every conceivable sin against honesty of feeling and honesty in the mere perception of the world... my Nietzscheanism was what psychologists call a "compensation". I ccould not face my life as it was, and so I took refuge in the fantasy of the Superman""."
