On This Day



On This Day… A Genius And A Flogged Horse!

Written by: George Chittenden : 26 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 3rd January back in 1889 when the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche broke down at the sight of a horse being flogged. The incident happened in Turin. Nietzsche had left his lodgings in the throes of a manic episode and walked a short distance to a nearby square.

It was in the square where he witnessed the horse being flogged by its owner, and threw himself towards the animal, embracing it. Slumping to the floor in tears Nietzsche was almost arrested for disturbing the peace. Eventually his landlord took him back home. Sadly, the remaining years of Friedrich Nietzsche’s life were spent under care, and in a state of madness. The horse incident marks the definitive moment, between great philosopher and broken mind.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
