Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Combining biography and a careful analysis of Nietzsche's writings from 1844-1900, this book explores Nietzsche's critique of Christianity, Judaism, and antisemitism. The first part of the book is concerned with psychological aspects and biographical elements. Part Two focuses on the ethical and political aspects of Nietzsche's views as presented in his mature writings: Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Toward the Genealogy of Morals, and the Antichrist.

"The chronological approach enlightens Nietzsche's developing views toward Jews. The so far neglected subject of Jewish-Christian relations in nineteenth-century Germany in reference to Nietzsche's thought is illuminated and interestingly discussed. The topic is vital for Nietzsche studies and central for understanding the intellectual, political, and historical categories that pre-existed in Germany in the nineteenth century." -- Jacob Golomb, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

"The existential-vital appropriation of Nietzsche's work is an interesting and a refreshing alternative to many contemporary analyses of Nietzsc he. The book traces some of the roots of twentieth-century German philosophical connections with Nazism and responses to Judaism, a topic of much recent interest, especially in relation to Heidegger' s philosophy and politics. With the boom in Nietzsche scholarship over the past decade or so, this book is a most welcome addition to the field." -- James P. Cadello, Regis University
