Amazon.com description: Product Description: Many people who are not students of philosophy know Nietzsche for three little words. God is dead. His influence has had a lasting effect in many areas of study. This book is essential for anyone interested in understanding this man. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher and philologist. His writings covered a wide scope of topics including religion, philosophy, morality, culture, and science. His influence is felt strongly in existentialism and postmodernism. In The Antichrist the author attacks Christianity. Nietzsche states ""We should not deck out and embellish Christianity: it has waged a war to the death against this higher type of man, it has put all the deepest instincts of this type under its ban, it has developed its concept of evil, of the Evil One himself, out of these instincts-the strong man as the typical reprobate, the 'outcast among men.' Christianity has taken the part of all the weak, the low, the botched; it has made an ideal out of antagonism to all the self-preservative instincts of sound life; it has corrupted even the faculties of those natures that are intellectually most vigorous, by representing the highest intellectual values as sinful, as misleading, as full of temptation. The most lamentable example: the corruption of Pascal, who believed that his intellect had been destroyed by original sin, whereas it was actually destroyed by Christianity!"
