Description

This book demonstrates how Hugues Rebell was able to form an original understanding and interpretation of Nietzschean thought. Hugues Rebell, the pen-name of Georges Grassal (1867-1905), was a descendent of aristocrats and grands bourgeois in Nantes. Rebell took up in writing the rebellion that his pen name signified, a rebellion against the socio-political systems that germinated in the French Revolution and later bloomed in the Third Republic: egalitarianism, and its expression in democracy, socialism, and Christianity.
