Nietzsche's influence on modern thinking beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism, nihilism and postmodernism. His style and radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth have resulted in much commentary and interpretation. His key ideas include the death of God, perspectivism, the ubermensch, amor fati, the eternal recurrence, and the will to power. In 1889, Nietzsche suffered a mental collapse. Nietzsche suffered at least two strokes, which partially paralysed him and left him unable to speak or walk. After contracting pneumonia in 1900 he had another stroke and died.
