Twilight of the Idols and the Antichrist (Dover Philosophical Classics)by Friedrich Nietzsche
Synopses & Reviews
Provocative and controversial, these two powerful works were written by Friedrich Nietzsche at the height of his powers as a polemicist. Twilight of the Idols attacks the Platonic legacy in Western philosophy, opposing all universal principles of morality. The Antichrist, a denunciation of institutional Christianity, delivers a brilliant and scathing indictment of 19th-century European culture. Of the latter, critic H. L. Mencken declared, "At bottom it is enormously apt and effective — and on the surface it is undoubtedly a good show."
Written in 1888, while Nietzsche was at the height of his brilliance, these 2 polemics blaze with provocative, inflammatory rhetoric. Nietzsche's "grand declaration of war," Twilight of the Idols examines what we worship and why. In addition to its full-scale attack on Christianity and Jesus Christ, The Antichrist denounces organized religion as a whole.
