> Otto Weininger's only book, *Sex & Character,* is a misogynist,
> anti-Semitic screed masquerading as philosophy. Yet it was enormously
> influential in fin-de-siècle Vienna and was an intellectual inspiration to
> what would later become the Nazi Party.

> How did Weininger, who killed himself at 23, and his almost indecipherable
> book come to influence such leading thinkers as Ludwig Wittgenstein, the
> composers Alban Berg and Arnold Schoenberg, and even James Joyce?
