Stephen N Williams explores Nietzsche's critique of Christianity by seeking to uncover the reasons and background behind the critique.
Friedrich Nietzsche was a German philosopher and cultural critic. In his prolific writings he was fiercely critical of social morality and religion. He advocated a hermeneutic of suspicion against traditional values and asceticism, suggesting that they were not only groundless, but positively harmful and contrary to individual freedom and flourishing.
