Twilight of the Idols and the Antichrist (04 Edition)by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
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.
