Description - The Antichrist (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) by Friedrich Nietzsche

Presents a criticism against modern values and beliefs. In this title, the author seethes with contempt for Christianity's imposition, upon humanity, of its perverse and unnatural vision. It contends that values offered by Christianity are created by people who are not qualified to create such values and ideals.

The Antichrist is the most powerful criticism ever offered against modern values and beliefs. In earlier books Nietzsche had announced, "God is dead," and in The Antichrist he seethes with contempt for Christianity's imposition, upon humanity, of its perverse and unnatural vision.

Nietzsche contends that values offered by Christianity are created by people who are not qualified to create such values and ideals. These meanings and goals are unnatural distortions of reality provided by people who are themselves divorced from reality, and who seek to instill in others the same dissatisfaction with this world which infects them.

Author Biography - Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was born in the village of Rocken in Saxony on October 15, 1844. Nietzsche, whose father was a Lutheran pastor, spent a year as a theology student at the University of Bonn, before studying classical philology at the University of Leipzig. Despite poor health and desperate loneliness, Nietzsche managed to produce a book (or a book-length supplement to an earlier publication) every year from 1878 to 1887. In early January 1889, he collapsed in the street in Turin, Italy, confused and incoherent. He spent the last eleven years of his life institutionalized or under the care of his family.
