Overview

Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche

Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most remarkable and influential books of the nineteenth century.

Like Thus Spoke Zarathustra, which had immediately preceded it, Beyond Good and Evil represents Nietzsche's attempt to sum up his philosophy--but in less flamboyant and more organized form.

Beyond Good and Evil confirmed Nietzsche's position as the towering European philosopher of his age.

The work dramatically rejects the tradition of Western thought with its notions of Truth and God, Good and Evil.

Instead, Nietzsche argues that the Christian world is steeped in false piety and infected with a slave morality --that demands that the individual imposes his or her own 'will to power' upon the world.

The nine sections of Beyond Good and Evil are designed to give the reader a wide-ranging impression of Nietzsche's thought and style: they span "The Prejudices of Philosophers," "The Free Spirit," religion, morals, scholarship, "Our Virtues," "Peoples and Fatherlands," and "What is Noble," as well as a chapter of epigrams and a concluding poem.

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.
