Friedrich Nietzsche, Fighter for Freedom
GA 5

The enigmatic Friedrich Nietzsche is the subject matter of this book. Nietzsche was seen by Steiner, but was lying in a coma near death. It is Nietzsche's philosophy, however, which receives emphasis here. It receives a scholarly and critical treatment. Nietzsche's philosophy is then related to Nietzsche, the man.

At one point in his life, Rudolf Steiner brought out an edition of some of Nietzsche's writings. In seeing that Nietzsche's ideas received a public exposure, Steiner was not identifying himself as one of Nietzsche's disciples, but rather assuring philosophical readers that this important link in the spiritual development of occidental thought should not be ignored.

This book is a First Edition printing of Friedrich Nietzsche, Fighter for Freedom, by Rudolf Steiner. The book is published in Switzerland under the title Friedrich Nietzsche, Ein Kampfer gegen seine Zeit.

Translated by Margaret Ingram de Ris.
