By Walter A. Kaufmann, Stanley Corngold
Originally released in 1959, The religion of a Heretic is the main own assertion of the ideals of Nietzsche biographer and translator Walter Kaufmann. a major thinker in his personal correct, Kaufmann the following presents the fullest account of his perspectives on faith. even if he thought of himself a heretic, he was once now not resistant to the wellsprings and impulses from which faith originates, stating it one of the most important and radical expressions of the human brain. starting with an autobiographical prologue that strains his evolution from spiritual believer to "heretic," the e-book touches on theology, prepared faith, morality, ache, and death--all tested from the viewpoint of a "quest for honesty." Kaufmann additionally matters philosophy's religion honestly, cause, and absolute morality to an identical heretical therapy. The ensuing exploration of the faiths of a nonbeliever in a mundane age is as clean and difficult as whilst it used to be first published.
In a brand new foreword, Stanley Corngold vividly describes the highbrow and biographical milieu of Kaufmann's provocative book.
