Overview

Beyond Good and Evil, is a book by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886.

It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction.

In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

I've read this book multiple times! I absolutely enjoy every minute of it. Some very memorable quotes lie with in the pages of Nietzsche and I've highlighted my favorites!

In this book Nietzsche is amazing for having discovered all the flaws that even philosophers like himself make. To get an idea of his true meaning one will have to forget about all prejudices and even all truths for that matter! Once again, Nietzsche includes a fine collection of aphorisms to dispute all others.

The liberal philosophy and the truth in a greatful book. I strongly recommend this book to everyone interested in his life and in his future.

Don't waste your time with this version. It's a scanned copy probably using an antique scanner! Every word with "r n" is automatically converted to "m". Therefore, "born" is converted to "bom" and virtually every "l" is converted to the symbol for British Pound Sterling. Ya, get what you paid for folks....

A lot of misprints, but not so bad that it renders the text unintelligible irritatingly printed but useful if you want to catch up on your nietzsche

Out of the translations K've read, definitely the best. Not dumbed down at all, but still uses language one can understand! Some passages take a couple rereadings, but that's.nietszche for ya.

Don't waste the 99 cents. When I downloaded this it turned out it was a circa 1917 translation, and so pretty much worthless.

The title, Beyond Good & Evil, can make the author seem a bit (perhaps a lot!) crude, but only if the title is to be interpreted (without reading the whole book) at face value. This is precisely what Nietzsche was against: reaching a conclusion that is `certain¿ based on the `name,¿ `idea,¿ or `concept¿ given to things and persons from a bias of superficiality. From this `labeling¿ the `simple man¿ becomes prejudiced, and therefore, locked into his `tradition¿ of thought and language, and as a consequence, cannot rise to a height `beyond¿ this `good & evil¿ man has created for himself. It is Nietzsche¿s task to drive his readers `beyond¿ this `good & evil¿ (where it is possible to create higher values), to shift perspectives, to a height where one cannot look up nor look down. At this height there exists no god, no mask, no prejudice. There is only the ¿great-souled man.¿ There is a lesson to be learned, but to learn it one only has to read Nietzsche in his spirit to find it.
