Summary

Rejects the tradition of Western thought with its notions of truth and God, good and evil. This work demonstrates that the Christian world is steeped in a false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. It promotes a philosophy that celebrates the present and demands that the individual imposes their own 'will to power' upon the world.

Beyond Good and Evil Summary

Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche

'One of the greatest books of a very great thinker' Michael Tanner

Beyond Good and Evil confirmed Nietzsche's position as the towering European philosopher of his age. The work dramatically rejects traditional Western thought with its notions of truth and God, good and evil. Nietzsche seeks to demonstrate 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 impose their own 'will to power' upon the world.

Translated by R. J. HOLLINGDALE With an Introduction by MICHAEL TANNER
