Now, this is the sort of thing I'd like to see on Sky's History Channel, AKA, the WWII channel. (Where would the History Channel be without Hitler?) What I'm talking about is Stephen Hicks' superb video presentation Nietzsche & the Nazis.
How did one of the most educated nations in Europe turn into a Nazi dictatorship? How philosophical were the National Socialists? How socialist were they? What influence did heavyweight intellectuals such as Martin Heidegger, Carl Schmitt, and Oswald Spengler have? And to what extent was Nietzsche a forerunner of the Nazis? All these questions and more are asked and thoroughly answered in Hicks' film.
