Nazism did possess a coherent philosophy, as Claudia Coonz argued in her now classic The Nazi Conscience (2005). At the core of this philosophy was a view of politics as biopolitics, and race as the decisive element in history. The Nazis, of course, did not invent these concepts, but they were not insecere in their belief, i.e., as an excuse to commit genocide. To quote Wilhlem Reich, "eugenics is fascism of the gonads." Hitler had a zoological view of existence, wee humans were just part of a continuum of the animal kingdom, nor special in any way. (Hence his love of animals and vegetarianism.) But, in this way, he saw genocide as the application of the laws of nature to the human species: 'The stronger apes always expel the weaker ones."
