In these two devastating late works, Nietzsche offers a powerful attack on the morality and the beliefs of his time

Nietzsche’s Twilight of the Idols is a ‘grand declaration of war’ on reason, psychology and theology, which combines highly charged personal attacks on his contemporaries (in particular Hegel, Kant and Schopenhauer) with a lightning tour of his own philosophy. It also paves the way for The Anti-Christ, Nietzsche’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.
