Publisher's Summary

In Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of 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 favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the contextual nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.This is a major work by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, whose writings have been deeply influential on subsequent generations of philosophers.

one of the best.

Wether or not you agree with the topic is not what I am rating. Some of Freds ideas are violently original. What I will say is that the narrator has a great pace and his voice is easy to listen too. The author does the topics justice and explains some philosophical ideas well without over simplification. This is not philosophy for dummies but at the same time its not Being and Time. Nice middle ground. If your a fan of the Freddy N. then yo will enjoy.
