5.0 out of 5 stars In At The Deep End: The Best Introduction To Nietzsche.
"Beyond Good And Evil" was written immediately after Nietzsche's "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" and contains none of its elaborate metaphors and imagery. "Zarathustra" was literature compared to this book. This is mature Nietzsche, the philosopher, at his most witty, most serious, and most perpetually devastating.
All of the classic...

5.0 out of 5 stars In At The Deep End: The Best Introduction To Nietzsche., 14 April 1999
By A Customer
"Beyond Good And Evil" was written immediately after Nietzsche's "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" and contains none of its elaborate metaphors and imagery. "Zarathustra" was literature compared to this book. This is mature Nietzsche, the philosopher, at his most witty, most serious, and most perpetually devastating.
All of the classic Nietzsche themes are present here; most notably and consummately the Will To Power. Chapter 4 consists of 122 razor-edged aphorisms, each only one or two sentences in length, which slice through the skin of human ulterior motive and the flesh of psychology, right down to the bones of mankind. Other chapters deal with the prejudices of philosophers, history of morals, people and nations, religion and "free-spirits" with the same healthy scepticism.
Nietzsche never entangles the reader in nets of abstract philosophical systems or lengthy and boring dissertation as most philosophers are compelled to do. "Beyond Good And Evil" is always to the point and the density of the language is far outweighed by the prolific content and profundity of thought. What at first glance may seem to be lead is revealed as pure gold with a scratch to the surface. For the uninitiated reader, all it takes is a little patience, (and perhaps, occasionally, a dictionary!) to unlock the books undeniable value for those "philosophers of the future" to whom "Beyond Good And Evil" is dedicated.
Nietzsche went on to outline his philosophy further in other truly great books, but "Beyond Good And Evil" represents a pinnacle in his work and is the best introduction to his philosophy. Nietzsche challenges his readers; he does not command but bids us to take a look through different eyes, and then to view ourselves, our wise men, and the world. And, above all, enquire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the easiest to read, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond Good and Evil (Kindle Edition)
Thought provoking - one doesn't have to necessarily agree with Nietzsche's opinions to learn from what he writes. A lot of people may take issue with what he says but I think it's worth a read even though he does, at times, sound more like an angry teenager than one of the most respected philosophers the world has seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars free version of this book, 19 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Beyond Good and Evil (Kindle Edition)
if youre reading this it is probably because you are interested to know of this free kindly version is readible /dependible

answers: yes and yes. - - the paid version of this book are more easy to read and come with notes and introductions. in this version its just the text in a somewhat very old translation. but nietzsches gaity is so that one can easily read the book and understand it never the less.

the work itself is also a five-star read, incidentally.

5.0 out of 5 stars A free edition with page numbers!, 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond Good and Evil (Kindle Edition)
This is of course one of Nietzsche's fundamental texts. What I like about this free Kindle edition is that it has page numbers - Not often found in a free edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bitter, angry and ingenious, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond Good and Evil (Kindle Edition)
Nietzsche is a polarizing figure in philosophy. This is a work of pure conviction, nietzsche knew and stood by what he believed, and whilst many of his opinions seem unsavoury to a liberal reader like myself, I find this work utterly compelling... even if I disagree with most of his views.

For a basic introduction to philosophy this maybe a bit still but once you've completed a bit of basic research its great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Things, 23 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Beyond Good and Evil (Kindle Edition)
The Basic Thing about Nietzsche is that as long as the existence of God is not proven Mankind have to find Truth and Wisdom on it's own. Which means that even the lowest kind of humanoids are reference to the spy-wisdom for mankind. Nietzsche puts Philosophy to the very private area, where people are alone and worthy of the thoughts they have. Nietzsche is giving back the value of being alive for every human being. Because every human alive is a spy at the very search for truth. Even the non-existence of God is not proven. People are alone. That's Nietzsche.
