Hitler's Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress

Hitler's Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress

Richard Weikart

Language: English

Pages: 269

ISBN: B019NE3LNQ

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


In this book, Weikart helps unlock the mystery of Hitler’s evil by vividly demonstrating the surprising conclusion that Hitler’s immorality flowed from a coherent ethic. Hitler was inspired by evolutionary ethics to pursue the utopian project of biologically improving the human race. This ethic underlay or influenced almost every major feature of Nazi policy: eugenics (i.e., measures to improve human heredity, including compulsory sterilization), euthanasia, racism, population expansion, offensive warfare, and racial extermination.
