Overview

Beyond Good and Evil is a work by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, in which he tackles similar issues from his previous book, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. If the prior work was one of philosophical literature, Beyond Good and Evil is pure philosophy: it's a collection of 296 aphorisms, each only one or two sentences, which are broken up into nine chapters based on common themes. Nietzsche's tenet that philosophers of the past lacked real critical abilities due to their blind acceptance of morality, especially Christian dogma, is here in full force. At the center of Nietzsche's philosophy is the "will to power," which he outlines in full.

Naturally Nietzsche has been labeled an "atheist," but if his line of thought is followed through, an ideal world of the mind and spirit would transcend both "theism" and "atheism," and old Platonic dualities which no longer have any benefit to mankind would be tossed. Thus what we need is a new philosophy and a new kind of philosopher for the coming era. That said, he doesn't give us a new philosophy, he just states that the old ones are bunk. His work is not for everyone, certainly - Nietzsche will offend as many readers as he enlightens. It is immensely creative, powerful, and provocative, and should be read by anyone (albeit slowly) with a passion for the life of the mind. Beyond Good and Evil is dedicated to those who can break free of dogma and cut to the pure and unadulterated essence of the human condition, those "Philosophers of the Future."

    This book is beyond good

    This is a must read. It provides valuable insight into the herd and how the herd manipulates the individual. Nietzsche's analysis of society is courageous and bold. For those that have never read Nietzsche, it may take a while to truly understand this book. He takes controversial stands, not all of which I am in agreement with. But that is why I am reviewing his book and not mine.

    My story pt 1

    Ok so here is the story of my life. I think youll find it boring but oh well. I have no real memory of my child hood untill i was five moons old. I had four brothers and one sister. I canot remember her name or my brothers'. My dad was darkclaw of bloodclan. When we were under attack by revenge clan. Bloodclan did not used to be strong mind that. My dad stayed in the nusery fighting off all cats. i remember one of my brothers left and was never seen ir heard from again. Untill later but read part 2 . Anyway, revengestar walked in. My dad fought him. Revengestar killed him instantly. He started rounding up the kits and my sister was next. I jumped on revengestars ear and it tore so i got a tighter grip. He yowled in pain while the kits ran away. I jumped and ran for my life. He was aboutto get me when... Moonclan renforcements. A warrior named moonfur took me to the safty of moonclan camp. I stayed there hoping there were survivors. Read part 2 for more!
