This book by Abir Taha analyses deeply the influences of Fredrich Nietzsche on the ideology of the Nazis. The book analyses how the Nazis appropriated majority of Nietzsche concepts and ideologies into their own unique ideology. The author also manages to point out the differences between the ideology of Nietzsche and abstruse doctrine of the Nazis. For Example, the author illustrates Cleary the occult character of the ideology of Nazism and the pagan Aryanism nature of the Nietzsche. The book therefore reveals the mysterious nature of the Nazi ideology and how closely it resembles the Nietzsche ideology (Evropa, 2006). This paper explores and analyses’ the themes and ideas presented in the novel about the relationship that exists between the Nietzsche and Nazi ideologies and the differences between the two ideologies.
Abir Taha analyses the Nietzsche’s philosophy and how each of the viewpoints of Nietzsche’s philosophy were radicalized while being included in the ideology of the Nazi doctrine. The author therefore unveils the universal Aryanism nature of the Nietzsche’s ideology and the mysteriousness of the Nazi ideology. The book offers a good comprehension of the ideology of the spiritual nature of Nietzsche’s ideology and the occulted nature of the Nazi regimes and the relationship that exists between the two ideologies. This book Cleary illustrates that the influence of Nietzsche’s on the Nazi ideology was on the mysterious, esoteric and spiritual nature of the Nazi doctrine (Evropa, 2006).
The book therefore refutes the claim that Nietzsche’s universal and spiritual and elitist ideology had nothing to do with the obscure ideology of Nazi philosophy that focused on racial discrimination on the basis of race and a high sense of nationalism. The book presents Nietzsche as the prophet of the Nazis in the sense that his philosophy was the one perverted by the Nazis to form the mysterious Nazi ideology. In the book, the author views Nazism as having two distinct components (Taha, 2005).
The first component is the exoteric nature of Nazism that focuses on an increased sense of German nationalism, biological racism and the anti-Semitic nature of the Nazi ideology. The second component is the esoteric component which was linked closely to occult ideals. These two distinctions have enabled the author to show the superficial nature of the Nietzsche ideology and the influences it had on each of the components (Taha, 2005).
