“That which does not kill us makes us stronger”, Friedrich Nietzsche famously wrote. In this Sprouts special in collaboration with Stephen Hicks, we explore Nietzsche’s division of the world into sheep and wolves, and how our morality, what we consider as good and bad, is the result of brute biological events.
