Publisher's Summary

Continuing where Thus Spoke Zarathustra left off, Nietzsche's controversial work Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most influential philosophical texts of the 19th century and one of the most controversial works of ideology ever written.

Attacking the notion of morality as nothing more than institutionalised weakness, Nietzsche criticises past philosophers for their unquestioning acceptance of moral precepts. Nietzsche tried to formulate what he called "the philosophy of the future".

Alex Jennings reads this new translation by Ian Johnston.

Spectacular

After masterpiece “thus spoke Zarathustra” he found the need for explanation, the details came out as beyond good and evil, master and slave morality explanations. And still he thought need for continuing morality in his next book.

Master morality, you will define good and bad not as slave waiting to be told!

A Pretty Enjoyable Read

Good, but dated in many respects. the different narrators to distinguish the book itself and the interpretation was good.
Very tongue-in-cheek in writing and had an interesting critique of Europe and European thought.

Modern age moral philosophy

This was a great book for moral philosophy. I will be reading it again at some point to let everything sink in and catch things that I missed the first time around.

Like reading his individual thoughts

it's remarkable to see how many things haven't changed since his time. There's still so much to learn from him

Friedrich Nietzsche

So many intellectuals refer to the brilliance of Nietzsche. This may be so however his scepticism is something that is disturbing to me.
