The worst book on ethics I have ever read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future (Classics) (Mass Market Paperback)
I bought this book for my daughter for her nineteeth birthday. She is busy at present studying the joys of philosophy, so I decided that this book - on the topics of good and evil - would be an excellent addition to her bookshelf. Was I mistaken. Luckily I had the chance to read the volume before giving it to her. Best left unread.

Your poor daughter, not allowed to develop her own opinion due to your belief you know what is best.

A good point well made - in fact i think we should find this Nietzsche character and give him a good talking to. Anyone know where he lives? Sounds suspiciously like a foreigner to me...

E Grant - in response to your comment - I could not help but feel the same - It's like your mum and dad forbidding you from reading "mein kampf" out of fear of you becoming a nazi... Or rather; Hitler forbidding you from reading "the communist manifesto"... well done mum.... you fascist ;)

I pray to Dionysus that the language of this comment is ironic
