Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Walter Arnold Kaufmann (July 1, 1921 - September 4, 1980 Princeton, New Jersey) was an American philosopher, translator, and poet. A prolific author, he wrote extensively on a broad range of subjects, such as authenticity and death, moral philosophy and existentialism, theism and atheism, Christianity and Judaism, and philosophy and literature.

He is particularly renowned as a scholar and translator of Nietzsche. Kaufmann's clear, witty English was quite unlike the writings of many of the theologians and philosophers whom he discussed.
