: Thank you very much!
: I already have Godfather of Fascism and
: Ansell-Pearsons Nietzsche as a political
: thinker,both have really helped in my essay.
: ill try to find Babette Babich. Do you know
: of any works by J.P.Stern that may be of any
: Very good question why i compare violence to
: Will to Power. I have tried to show in my
: essay thus far that Nietzsche does not
: necessarily endorse violence, and infact
: only misreadings usually lead to the common
: misconception of power as violence. I focus
: more on exploitation of the Jews, and
: Nazisms general dominance over them, with a
: link to master and slave moralities.
: Thank you for the reference to The Gay
: Science though, I am somewhat of a novice
: when reading Nietzsche, the only text so far
: i have studied in depth is Beyond Good &
: Evil. Aside from that i only have a brief
: understanding or Zarathustra. I hope to add
: more of his works to my bookshelf asap

: Works of seeming necessity for your study:
: Jacomb Golomb and Robert S. Wistrich, eds.,
: Nietzsche, Godfather of Fascism: On the Uses
: and Abuses of Philosophy
: Babette Babich's introduction to Nietzsche,
: Habermas, and Critical Theory ,
: "Habermas, Nietzsche, and the Future of
: Critique: Irrationality, The Will to Power,
: and War."
: There are several other works that address
: these issues; some basic research will yield
: further titles. Other related monographs you
: might wish to consult would be any of the
: volumes written on politics, such as Ansell
: Pearson's and Strong's.
: Why however compare violent actions and the
: will to power? There are numerous
: configurations of power for Nietzsche so
: when you speak of power, what precise
: configuration of the will to power are you
: speaking of? To inflict pain on others as
: Nietzsche explicitly outlines in aphorism 13
: in The Gay Science "is a sign that we
: are still lacking power, or it shows a sense
: of frustration in the face of this poverty.

: I am currently writing a large History essay
: entitled 'How far are the origins of Nazism
: philosophical' and a small part of which
: examines Nietzsche's possible influence on
: the Nazi party. Since doing my reasearch i
: have obviously found that the Nazis were
: infact wrong to cite Nietzsche as an
: I have analysed some similarities between
: Nietzsche's philosophies and the ideology of
: the Nazi party, however i was wondering if
: anybody knew of a history of some sort
: describing Nietzsche's link to Nazi
: ideology. Resources are very hard to find
: that explicitly link Nietzsche to the Nazis
: (as nearly all historians and philosophers
: agree the Nazis misused nietzsche) therefore
: a portion of my essay rests on mere
: comparisons between (for example) the
: violent actions of the nazi party and will
: to power, etc. This sadly is not solid
: enough fact, and if anybody had any

: it would be GREATLY appreciated.
: Thank you very much.
