On the Genealogy of Morals: A Polemic. By way of clarification and supplement to my last book Beyond Good and Evil

    In short, he provides an interesting perspective to an ongoing and incredibly complex problem, that being the story of morality. It's not to be taken as completely right or wrong, so keep that in mind.

    Also, the other reviews are embarrassing... Let's get a couple things cleared up. 1) He is not anti-"semetic." He sees that slave morality derives form Jewish hatred, but that does not mean that he is speaking out against, slave morality, Jews, or even hatred. 2) It is hard to read because in this "book," he is expecting that you have read his other works critically, so there are a lot of references to be missed. Also, he is a philologist... he uses other words and roots from multiple languages to justify and convey his points, giving them validity from an eclectic use of language roots, if you will. 3) It's genius... Come on.

    That's about that. I would highly suggest Nietzsche, just come back to this one when you have a better understanding of him, or you will be disappointed, as Cobalt_TiNor was, which is why the two star rating is not deserved (because of ignorance).

    A polemic indeed

    Strong anti-semetic messages, but overall an interesting read.

    Hard to read

    I don't know if it was just Nietzsche's writing or Horace B. Samuels translation.... but this book was very difficult to read. I understand that it was translated from German or whatever but why is there an entire paragraph in Latin and various sentences and quotes from multiple different languages.

    Other than the difficulty reading it and Nietzsche just being biased, it was an interesting book, not sure if I'm interested in reading more of his stuff but I know I will.

    Genious pulling the Genious out from within us

    This man is a great. I strongly suggest reading his numerous works. His insight on humankind is spectacular. I recommend this to all seeking knowledge and wisom. Philosophy is an eye-opening path of self importance and Nietzsche is the PERFECT religious philosopher for those wishing to explore their options.
