Anti-Education new translation

Book

The New York Review of Books publishes a translation of Nietzsche’s Anti-Education. Translated by Searls, the book consists of five lectures given by Nietzsche to the Basel Museum in 1872. Searls seeks to strip away the revisionism of Nietzsche’s works imposed by his virulently anti-Semitic sister, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzche, who had custody of him during the later years of his life. In On Education, Nietzsche argues that the educational system of his time does not instruct students in independent thinking but resorts to “the ubiquitous encouragement of everyone’s so-called ‘individual personality.” The editors go on to describe Nietzsche as the “anti-academic.”
