'I am not a man, I am dynamite.'

Ecce Homo is an autobiography like no other. Deliberately provocative, Nietzsche subverts the conventions of the genre and pushes his philosophical positions to combative extremes, constructing a genius-hero whose life is a chronicle of incessant self-overcoming.

Written in 1888, a few weeks before his descent into madness, the book sub-titled 'How To Become What You Are' passes under review all Nietzsche's previous works so that we, his 'posthumous' readers, can finally understand him aright, on his own terms. He reaches final reckonings with his many enemies - Richard Wagner, German nationalism, 'modern men' in general - and above all Christianity, proclaiming himself the Antichrist. Ecce Homo is the summation of an extraordinary philosophical career, a last great testament to Nietzsche's will. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900), was a nineteenth-century German philosopher and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morailty, contemporary culture, philosophy, and science, using a distinctive German language style and displaying a fondness for metaphor andaphorism.
