Noble Men
Explanation:
The lecture he gave is translated into English as ‘Upward to the Realm of Noble Men’:
He turned deliberately to pacifism and wrote several books about the raising of humans from "evil" to "good". His friendship with the artist Sascha Schneider lead to new symbolistic covers for the Fehsenfeld edition. May experienced approval on 22 March 1912 and was invited by the Academic Society for Literature and Music in Vienna to hold a talk, Empor ins Reich der Edelmenschen ("Upward to the Realm of Noble Men")

Obviously, you have entered the term in the singular and I have answered in the plural of the title.

agree  philgoddard: Though I would leave it in German, with an explanation if necessary. The same goes for Nietzsche's Übermensch.

  -> Thanks, Phil. The title definitely should remain in German, with an English translation in brackets. I guess it is up to the author whether the term is then repeated in German or English. I would probably go for German, but it depends on the audience.
