Nietzsche's Jewish Problem: Between Anti-Semitism and Anti-Judaism
Philosophy and Religion
Ostensibly, Robert Holub’s provocative new work seeks to find middle ground between those who assert that Nietzsche is an anti-Semite and a forerunner to National Socialism and those who intransigently defend Nietzsche against such charges, arguing that he was in fact free from anti-Jewish prejudice. However, while much of Holub’s well-researched text suggests that a more nuanced approach is necessary to appreciate Nietzsche’s complicated relationship with Jews and Judaism, the case advanced ultimately boarders on an outright prosecution against Nietzsche and his purported anti--Semitism.
