Different is the meaning of Nietzsche's work
At the end of the XIX cent., when the memory of Parisian Commune is still alive and german ruling classes quake in front of the rise of socialist masses. Some year later the ambitions of a self-confident and quicky growing Germany move the cares of intellectuals and politicians from inner class struggle to the international clash between the european great powers. In 1919 then a ruinous defeat and a revolutionary change of regim showd how fragile was Germany's unity. In each of this moment the interpretation of Nietzsche's thought changes in Arthur Moeller van den Bruck's lecture.
