The Antichrist (Paperback)
A refute of dogmatic Christianity, said best in his own words: "An action demanded by the instinct of life is proven correct by the pleasure that accompanies it; yet Christian dogma considers pleasure an objection. What could destroy us more quickly than working, thinking, and feeling without any inner necessity, without any deeply personal choice, without pleasure as an automaton of duty?" Nietzsche challenges the ethical-moral value system that the West has so deeply inherited from the belief and practice of Christianity, maintaining that the Christian emphasis on sympathy and pity multiplies the experience of suffering, which has weakened, rather than strengthened its followers. Readers are invited to embrace questions and topics, otherwise off-limits in mainstream society.
