Summary
Contends that Nazism was a unique rebellion against the Judaeo-Christian tradition which views man as separate from nature and exalts a transcendent God. Nazism hoped to create a new man, living in accordance with the fixed laws of nature, and was thus essentially anti-Jewish. Ch. 5 (p. 117-136) shows that, for social and cultural reasons, Jews were not considered part of the natural world but were described as parasites, making a war to exterminate them logically and ethically inevitable. The widespread "abstract" dislike of Jews reported by historians was part of a "bourgeois group fantasy" in which the Jew was cast as the "Other". This view was accepted by the Churches, which alone might have protested successfully against antisemitic measures.
