The Twilight of the Idols and the Anti-Christ : Or How to Philosophize with a Hammer
by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche and R. J. Hollingdale and Michael Tanner




Overview -
'One must be superior to mankind in force, in loftiness of soul--in contempt'

In these two devastating works, Nietzsche offers a sustained and often vitriolic attack on the morality and the beliefs of his time, in particular those of Hegel, Kant and Schopenhaur. Twilight of the Idols is a 'grand declaration of war' on reason, psychology and theology that combines highly charged personal attacks on his contemporaries with a lightning tour of his own philosophy. It also paves the way for The Anti-Christ, Nietzche's final assault on institutional Christianity, in which he identifies himself with the 'Dionysian' artist and confronts Christ; the only opponent he feels worthy of him.

In his introduction Michael Tanner discussed the themes of Nietzche's argument and places the works in their historical and philosophical context.
