In this book a new interpretation of Nietzsche's writings weaves together several issues: power, value, nature, sexuality and sexual politics, and religion. This is perhaps the first book to address all these issues, and it offers the reader new possibilities for engaging this amazing thinker. The title of the book, taken from Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, encapsulates his philosophical adventure.
The approach involved the use of mostly primary material, with further elaboration and development. The style, substance and approach to the material are geared to entice the reader into wanting to read Nietzsche for himself or herself.

About the Author

Prof. Rebekah Peery earned her Doctorate in Philosophy at Vanderbilt University; she taught philosophy and religious studies at Radford University for almost two decades. Courses she led included the philosophy of Plato and Aristotle, Hobbes, Kant, Nietzsche and Heidegger, as well as ethics, aesthetics, the Continental Rationalists and British Empiricists, Political Philosophy, and Existentialism.

Her enjoyment of sharing the great thinkers with the general public led her to write the current book, which is intended to help readers take a fresh look at the challenges Nietzsche presents and to grasp the excitement of his philosophical adventure.
