Verlagsangabe: A year after her brother Friedrich's death, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche published The Will to Power, a hasty compilation of writings the philosopher had never intended for print. Carol Diethe examines how Förster-Nietzsche's own will to power and her desire to supplant her brother at the center of German cultural life played a central role in forming Nietzsche's reputation as a belligerent and proto-Fascist thinker.
As Diethe shows, Förster-Nietzsche consorted with antisemites--ranging from her own husband to Hitler--out of convenience but also a desire for revenge against a brother whose love for her waned after she caused the collapse of his friendship with Lou Salomé. In addition, Diethe delves into their family dynamics, Nietzsche's dismissal of his sister's early writing career, and the effects of limited education on intelligent women. She also details Förster-Nietzsche's brief marriage and subsequent colonial venture in Paraguay, maintaining that Elisabeth’s sporadic antisemitism was, like most things in her life, an expedient tool for cultivating personal success and status.
