The Biology of Evil: Nietzsche on Degeneration (Entartung) and Jewification (Verjüdung)

The Biology of Evil: Nietzsche on Degeneration (Entartung) and Jewification (Verjüdung) <p>Abstract:</p><p>This article examines Nietzsche&apos;s use of the rhetorics of degeneration (<i>Entartung</i>) and "jewification" (<i>Verjüdung</i>), arguing that he often, though not always, uses them in unconventional ways to undermine his audience&apos;s comfortable assumptions about their values and identity. In doing so, he challenges the idea of health as the isolation of alleged infectious elements and promotes the ideal of a "great health" predicated on the incorporation of such elements into a greater whole.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Nietzsche Studies Penn State University Press
