Bear in mind that mensch translate
s better as "person
" than as "man
" anyway. This can only be intentional
- if Nietsche
had wanted to write Mann und Ubermann
there wouldn't have been anything to stop him from doing so.
For all his faults, and he had many, Nietsche was no-one's theoretical misogynist or even Nazi. He believed in transcending religion, rather than slaughtering people.
