This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading. Ecce Homo-"Behold the man" -were the words Pilate used to refer to Jesus when presenting the masses with a choice between saving him or saving Barabbas. They are also the words Friedrich Nietzsche chose as the title for his literary self-portrait, his statement of how he sees himself and wants others to see him. Ecce Homo constitutes a reflection upon Nietzsche's life and career, but also forcefully repudiates those interpretations of his previous works purporting to find support there for imperialism, anti-Semitism, militarism, and Social Darwinism. It will be of great interest to anyone concerned with ethics, nihilism, psychology, and the meaning and cultural significance of religion.
