Publisher's Summary

Friedrich Nietzsche is perhaps one of the most controversial philosophers in history. His name is perhaps most closely identified with the statement "God is dead". As a result of this inflammatory style, it is more common to have heard of Nietzsche than to have read his work. It has the feel of religious fervor more than that of a classical text on philosophy, and in this respect this work, The Antichrist, was aptly named. It is not so much aimed at the expression of any new perspective or in support of the expansion of knowledge but rather represents an effort to undo the religious interference Nietzsche believed worked against the advancement of culture and knowledge. In many ways he was the mouthpiece for the most unfavorable logical conclusions that rose to the fore in the meeting of the scientific and Christian perspective.

Despite the disagreeable nature of his religious perspective, his views have undeniable power and influenced a host of other philosophers. His name has been synonymous with Nazism, nihilism, materialism, and anti-Semitism, and his ideas have been viewed by some with an almost fanatical regard. Perhaps the most ironic aspect of this posthumous reception is the fact that Nietzsche himself was categorically opposed to all of these perspectives. His poetic and radical style left him poorly understood by those who read him and served to foster many of the approaches he condemned.

The full narration of this text is preceded by a summary that highlights the main points of his work, including a biography of the author , an overview of the subjects covered, and a synopsis and analysis of the work. Also included are an examination of the historical context, criticisms, and the social impact of Nietzsche's writings.

This is one of the most comprehensive reviews of Nietzsche's The Antichrist ever produced and a must-hear for those interested in philosophy, theology, or history.

    "I'm learning Nietzsche I don't need sparkly sounds"

    The narrator was fine, but a peculiar sound repeats persistently between chapters. This is Nietzsche, know your audience.

    Story
    "interesting but a false theory"

    It was very interesting discussion about good and evil and strength and weakness, Nietzsche takes a rather barbaric view of strength and weakness by saying all weakness should be eliminated,, and that the Christians suppress strength. going back to the time in which this was written there was a lot of controversy concerning the Catholic church, which was at the time using it's power over the people to fuel the Pope's war. But simply because corruption abounded in the Catholic church, does not mean that Christ himself was wrong about charity and kindness. I simply wish I could have a discussion with Nietzsche face to face, as I wish of a great many people.
