Friedrich Nietzsche

Fighter for Freedom

By Rudolf Steiner

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 published in Switzerland under the title Friedrich Nietzsche, Ein Kampfer gegen seine Zeit. We present an authorized translation for the Western Hemisphere by agreement with the Rudolf Steiner-Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
