(Written 1895; GA 5 / Bn 5 / CW 5)

Steiner met Nietzsche's work in 1889. At once fascinated by Nietszche's style, and repelled by certain pathological aspects of his consciousness, Steiner recognized Nietzsche's spiritual preeminence as a “fighter for freedom.” Six years later, as a result of meeting Nietzsche's sister, Steiner encountered the dying philosopher himself. Thereafter, he spent several weeks in the Nietzsche archives. The result is this book, an essential stepping stone toward an understanding of anthroposophy.

The main sections of the book are:
    Friedrich Nietzsche, A Fighter Against His Time
    The Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche as a
        Psychopathological Problem
    Friedrich Nietzsche's Personality and Psychotherapy
    The Personality of Friedrich Nietzsche,
        A Memorial Address
