Twilight of Idols and Anti-Christ by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Book Description"Twilight of the Idols", an attack on all the prevalent ideas of his time, offers a lightning tour of his whole philosophy. It also prepares the way for "The Anti-Christ", a final assault on institutional Christianity. Both works show Nietzsche lashing out at self-deception, astounded at how often morality is based on vengefulness and resentment. Both reveal a profound understanding of human mean-spiritedness which still cannot destroy the underlying optimism of Nietzsche, the supreme affirmer among the great philosophers.

Books By Author Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Aphorisms on Love and Hate, Paperback (February 2015)
Contains a selection of Nietzsche's brilliant and challenging aphorisms, examining the pleasures of revenge, the falsity of pity, and the incompatibility of marriage with the philosophical life.
Birth of Tragedy, Paperback (February 2015)
Argues the importance of the tension between what the author called Apollonian and Dionysian forces. In this title, the author boldly combines aesthetics and psychology in a creative meditation on the sources of artistic inspiration. It also addresses the problem of nihilism in modern culture.
Beyond Good and Evil, Hardback (November 2014)
One of the most iconoclastic philosophers of all time, the author dramatically rejected notions of good and evil, truth and God. With wit and subversive energy, he demands that the individual impose their own 'will to power' upon the world. This book demonstrates that the world is steeped in false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'.
Humano, Demasiado Humano, Paperback / softback (October 2014)» View all books by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
As essential aspects of the work of a German philosopher, it may highlight the struggle for a new idea of culture. They also have a desire for power and to inform the Western culture of values which they deny as forms of morality.
