Nature and Politics in Ecce Homo and Antichrist
Ecce Homo and Antichrist, the two books Nietzsche prepared for the press but did not live to see into publication himself, deals with the interrelated questions of what a philosopher is and what a philosophical life might be. Heinrich Meier positions the two books as Nietzsche’s most significant late work, taking the place of the discredited Will to Power.
In the two companion works, Nietzsche demands a ‘re-evaluation of all values’ in order to render life the highest form of affirmation; at the same time, the books that complete his oeuvre are on the side of a decided negation. On the one hand, the books offer the most radical philosophical critique of Christianity ever written, with the author as the self-styled revolutionary who shatters human history for a new beginning. On the other hand, the books’ principal focus is on the nature of the philosopher. How yes and no, nature and politics go together in Nietzsche’s Janus-faced philosophy is the subject of Heinrich Meier’s long-awaited work. In his analysis, readers will find a fresh approach to Nietzsche’s work overall.
