Twilight of the Idols

And, the Anti-Christ

Book - 2003
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Nietzsche's sustained and often vitriolic attack on the morality and beliefs of his time, in particular those of Hegel, Kant and Schopenhauer. Twilight of the idols is a "grand declaration of war" on reason, psychology and theology that combines highly charged personal attacks on his contemporaries with a lightening tour of his own philosophy. It also paves the way for The Anti-Christ, Nietzche's final assault on institutional Christianity.

Brilliant and timeless works! Nietzsche's philosophical observations still stand up (when you get away from idiots who misinterpret them!). Especially great is The Anti-Christ, where he calls Christianity "a form of mortal hostility to reality as yet unsurpassed"! (And it still is!!). The hyphen in the title distinguishes itself from the biblical conception of The Antichrist. A must read for freethinkers everywhere!
