Overview



This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 Ecce Homo-"Behold the man" -were the words Pilate used to refer to Jesus when presenting the masses with a choice between saving him or saving Barabbas. They are also the words Friedrich Nietzsche chose as the title for his literary self-portrait, his statement of how he sees himself and wants others to see him. Ecce Homo constitutes a reflection upon Nietzsche's life and career, but also forcefully repudiates those interpretations of his previous works purporting to find support there for imperialism, anti-Semitism, militarism, and Social Darwinism. It will be of great interest to anyone concerned with ethics, nihilism, psychology, and the meaning and cultural significance of religion.

Meet the Author


Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was born in the village of Röcken 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, then in 1865, 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.
