Friedrich Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil, first published in 1886, presents a scathing critique of traditional morality and attacks previous philosophers for their blind acceptance of Christian ideals of virtue. As an alternative to what he viewed as the illogical and irrelevant philosophy of the nineteenth century, Nietzsche argues for the importance of imagination, self-assertion, danger, and originality for genuine philosophy. He furthermore denies the existence of a universal system of morality and instead offers a framework in which social roles and power dynamics dictate what is appropriate.

A culmination of Nietzsche’s mature philosophy, Beyond Good and Evil is a classic of moral thought and one of the foundations of existentialism. This edition is the translation by Helen Zimmern.

    " If only every philosopher were as wildly interesting as this one. "

    " Lots of great ruminations here. He makes you shed your encoding and see things differently. A must for people who think they know everything. Look closer. "

    " It was very well written and thought out with distinction. However I find the first part of most philosophy papers to be a little boring where the whole goal is to point out things that are wrong with other prominent philosophers ideas. The middle 3-4 chapters were really good with a lot of short but insightful paragraphs. However the end droned on with a lot of whining about modern Germany and civilization. So I'd like to just condense this book to the middle 3 or so chapters. "

    " Quite entertaining, even when he's wrong. "
