: Throughout history several attempts have been made to discover pierced holes in the curtain of the Christian moral system. One of these efforts was performed by Friedrich Nietzsche. Nietzsche exhorts his readers to expatiate above and beyond any moral system (primarily the Christian moral system which in his book the 'Anti-Christ' he considers to be the most pernicious one) and thereby emancipate themselves from the fetters that these systems emanate. In this book this type of exhortation is challenged along with the accusations that it hosts (consequences to such exhortation are exposed). As a guide to Nietzsche's ideology this book focuses on the main arguments offered by Nietzsche in his book the "Anti-Christ."

Nietzsche: The Anti-Christ, Ecce Homo, Twilight of the Idols

And Other Writings

Nietzsche's late works are brilliant and uncompromising, and stand as monuments to his lucidity, rigour, and style. This volume combines, for the first time in English, five of these works: The Antichrist, Ecce Homo, Twilight of the Idols, Nietzsche contra Wagner, and The Case of Wagner. Here, Nietzsche takes on some of his greatest adversaries: traditional religion, contemporary culture, and above all his one-time hero, the composer Richard Wagner. His writing is simultaneously critical and creative, putting into practice his alternative philosophical vision, which, after more than a hundred years, still retains its startling novelty and audacity. These new translations aim to capture something of the style and rhythm of the original German, so that the reader can get a sense of Nietzsche as not just a philosopher but also a consummate artist, capable of 'dancing with his pen', and as untimely as he claims to be.

"In The Shadow of the Antichrist, Williams fills a significant gap in the scholarly literature by examining Nietzsche's critique of Christianity and his continuing influence. Williams begins with a basic question - What was it about Christianity that caused Nietzsche's agitation? He aims to answer that question not with a systematic survey of Nietzsche's thought but rather through a careful examination of themes that emerge in his ruminations on religion."--BOOK JACKET.

Nietzsche and The Antichrist

Religion, Politics, and Culture in Late Modernity

This collection both reflects and contributes to the recent surge of philosophical interest in The Antichrist and represents a major contribution to Nietzsche studies. Nietzsche regarded The Antichrist, along with Zarathustra, as his most important work. In it he outlined many epoch-defining ideas, including his dawning realisation of the 'death of God' and the inception of a new, post-moral epoch in Western history. He called the work 'a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed'. One certainly need not share Nietzsche's estimation of his achievement in The Antichrist to conclude that there is something significant going on in this work. Indeed, even if Nietzsche overestimated its transformative power, it would be valuable nonetheless to have a clearer sense of why he thought so highly of this particular book, which is something of an outlier in his oeuvre. Until now, there has been no book that attempts to account with philosophical precision for the multiple themes addressed in this difficult and complex work.

Twilight of Idols and Anti-Christ

In these two devastating late works, Nietzsche offers a powerful attack on the morality and the beliefs of his time Nietzsche's Twilight of the Idols is a 'grand declaration of war' on reason, psychology and theology, which combines highly charged personal attacks on his contemporaries (in particular Hegel, Kant and Schopenhauer) with a lightning tour of his own philosophy. It also paves the way for The Anti-Christ, Nietzsche's final assault on institutional Christianity, in which he identifies himself with the 'Dionysian' artist and confronts Christ: the only opponent he feels worthy of him.

In The Legend of the Anti-Christ, Stephen Vicchio offers a concise and historical approach to the history of the idea of the Anti-Christ, including precursors to the idea, the development of the idea in the New Testament, as well as the understandings of the legend of the Anti-Christ in the history of Christianity. Vicchio also raises the question of why there is so much emphasis in the modern world about the idea.
