The Antichrist (German: Der Antichrist) (also could be translated as The Anti-Christian) is a book by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, originally published in 1895. Although The Antichrist was written in 1888, its controversial content made Franz Overbeck and Heinrich Köselitz delay its publication, along with Ecce Homo. The German title can be translated into English as both "The Anti-Christ" and "The Anti-Christian." The English word "Christian" is called a weak noun in German and, in the singular nominative case, it is translated as "der Christ." Given the content of the book, the title The Antichrist is likely to imply both connotations (the same way as "Antichristianity" would in English).

The Antichrist by Friedrich Nietzsche: Friedrich Nietzsche claimed in the Foreword to have written the book The Antichrist for a very limited readership. In order to understand the book The Antichrist, Friedrich Nietzsche asserted that the reader "... must be honest in intellectual matters to the point of hardness to so much as endure my seriousness, my passion." The reader should be above politics and nationalism. Also, the usefulness or harmfulness of truth should not be a concern. Characteristics such as "Strength which prefers questions for which no one today is sufficiently daring; courage for the forbidden" are also needed. Friedrich Nietzsche disdained all other readers.

When Friedrich Nietzsche says in the preface, "Let us look one another in the face. We are Hyperboreans...", Friedrich Nietzsche was alluding to a mysterious, occult subject in Greek mythology, which spoke of the Hyperboreans (or Thuleans) as the original civilized and gifted race of mankind (cf. Julius Evola). Friedrich Nietzsche cleverly refers to the Hyperboreans to indirectly extol the heritage of pre-Christian, Indo-European paganism as compared to the deficient "southerliness" of the modern Judeo-Christian, egalitarian tradition...
