"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. Nietzsche demonstrates that the Christian world is steeped in a false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. With wit and energy, he turns from this critique to a philosophy that celebrates the present and demands that the individual imposes their own 'will to power' upon the world.
About the Author
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) published, among other titles, Human, All Too Human and The Dawn. He divorced himself from public life and, in 1889, became insane, remaining in a condition of mental and physical paralysis until his death. R J Hollingdale translated eleven of Nietzsche's books and published two books about him. Michael Tanner is a Fellow of Corpus Christi College.

The book itself, the structure of paragraphs is digestible and original (as far as my knowledge goes) in a number format. This makes it easy to find the specific subtitle for citation purposes or for a re read. Very interesting insights into man's problem and what man should accept as their problem as nature (and to their fault). Nietzsche holds views which is often amusing to his berating (and rightly so) with the subjects of contention. It reminds me of another contrarian, Hitchens. Although I think is more masterful with his language. A great dismantled of philosophers and should be seen to be read by them, as the criticism put forth is worth reading about.
