Nietzsche and World War One (Sewanee Review, 1920)

In this 1920 article the theologian George Burman Foster (1858 - 1918), examined the writings of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) and surmised how that philosopher might have understood the First World War, with all of it's scientific and industrial power.

"War constitutes one of of those dangerous 'experiments' undertaken by the wise man to further the progress of life, to test the value of an idea, of life.

However, his fertile mind was not entirely devoid of any religious conviction but rather his views on theology were totally undigested and lacking in order and consistency. It is an interesting piece about one of America's most fascinating Presidents concerning a topic that keeps coming up again and again.

"'Jefferson's Bible' is one of the 'curiosities of literature'. This book, called by him, 'The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth' was published by congress in 1904."

(The article can be printed: which is good because the pages are out of order; sorry for the inconvenience.)

The historian Henry Steele Commager ranked Thomas Jefferson at number 14 insofar as his impact on the American mind was concerned - click here to understand his reasoning...
