  • Descrição: Max Nordau's book Degeneration (1892) chronicles the nerve-shattering advance of modernity, addressing degeneration as symbolized in art & literature. His best known period was his Zionist advocacy phase, in which he called for regenerating the Jew's dignity & encouraging the emergence of the "New Jew" from the debris of the Eastern European diaspora. Roughly parallel with early twentieth-century concepts of nationalism in Europe, Nordau's New Jew epitomizes middle-class manliness in response to prevailing degenerate trends. Nordau was a prominent liberal, pragmatist, & practitioner of the scientific method. Tending toward the right-wing, his approach to Zionism was sober & practical, in comparison to that of Theodor Herzl. He believed in a native soil & in the struggle for existence. After WWI, his discourse became more militant, calling for a Jewish majority in Palestine.
