Nietzsche's Jewish Problem

Between Anti-Semitism and Anti-Judaism

Princeton University Press 2016

purchase at bookshop.org In Nietzsche's Jewish Problem: Between Anti-Semitism and Anti-Judaism (Princeton University Press, 2016), Robert Holub, Ohio Eminent Scholar and Professor of German at Ohio State University, evaluates the debate over whether famed German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was an anti-Semite. Holub distinguishes between political anti-Semitism of nineteenth-century Germany, and more general anti-Jewish prejudice. Utilizing evidence from Nietzsches published and unpublished writings and letters, Holub shows that Nietzsche reveals that he harbored anti-Jewish prejudices throughout his life.
