Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future by Friedrich Nietzsche Summary

The bold genius of Friedrich Nietzsche, the controversial and legendary philosopher whose thought has impacted modern man like no other--shines through here in this classic literary meditation on the failings of past thinkers and intellectuals, men who divided the so-named ""good"" from what they took to be ""evil."" Nietzsche offers here a penetrating reexamination of human values, maintaining that what is taken to be ""evil"" may, in point of fact, be the animalistic virtue of a sentient being imbued with an indomitable ""Will to Power,"" while altruistic values, conversely, are the mark of weak, lowly, or degenerating creatures. A masterful, erudite work of vastly intellectual significance, Beyond Good and Evil (1886) forces the reader into a new awareness of his own values and conditioned presumptions.

Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche,General Press Summary

German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche was one the most controversial figures of the 19th century. His evocative writings on religion, morality, culture, philosophy, and science were often polemic attacks against the established views of his time. 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. As he asserts, the initial form of morality arises from the warrior nature of the ruling castes of ancient civilizations, who viewed themselves as good because of their wealth and power in contrast to the weakness of those that they enslaved.

Wagner Beyond Good and Evil by John Deathridge Summary

John Deathridge presents a different and critical view of Richard Wagner based on recent research that does not shy away from some unpalatable truths about this most controversial of composers in the canon of Western music. Deathridge writes authoritatively on what Wagner did, said, and wrote, drawing from abundant material already well known but also from less familiar sources, including hitherto seldom discussed letters and diaries and previously unpublished musical sketches. At the same time, Deathridge suggests that a true estimation of Wagner does not lie in an all too easy condemnation of his many provocative actions and ideas. Rather, it is to be found in the questions about the modern world and our place in it posed by the best of his stage works, among them Tristan und Isolde and Der Ring des Nibelungen. Controversy about Wagner is unlikely to go away, but rather than taking the line of least resistance by regarding him blandly as a "classic" in the Western art tradition, Deathridge suggests that we need to confront the debates that have raged about him and reach beyond them, toward a fresh and engaging assessment of what he ultimately achieved.

Beyond Good & Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche Summary

Philosophy Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most remarkable and influential books of the nineteenth century. Like Thus Spoke Zarathustra, which had immediately preceded it, Beyond Good and Evil represents Nietzsche's attempt to sum up his philosophy—but in less flamboyant and more systematic form. The nine parts of the book are designed to give the reader a comprehensive idea of Nietzsche’s thought and style: they span "The Prejudices of Philosophers," "The Free Spirit," religion, morals, scholarship, "Our Virtues," "Peoples and Fatherlands," and "What is Noble," as well as chapter of epigrams and a concluding poem. This translation by Walter Kaufmann—the first ever to be made in English by a philosopher—has become the standard one, for accuracy and fidelity to the eccentricities and grace of style of the original. Unlike other editions, in English or German, this volume offers an inclusive index of subjects and persons referred to in the book. Professor Kaufmann, the distinguished Nietzsche scholar, has also provided a running footnote commentary on the text. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche Summary

Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche that expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, with a more critical and polemical approach. It was first published in 1886. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. 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 perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

Beyond Good and Evil by Frederich Nietzche Summary

Beyond Good and Evil is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It draws on and expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but with a more critical and polemical approach. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. 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 perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. Of the four "late-period" writings of Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil most closely resembles the aphoristic style of his middle period. In it he exposes the deficiencies of those usually called "philosophers" and identifies the qualities of the "new philosophers": imagination, self-assertion, danger, originality, and the "creation of values". He then contests some of the key presuppositions of the old philosophic tradition like "self-consciousness," "knowledge," "truth," and "free will", explaining them as inventions of the moral consciousness. In their place he offers the "will to power" as an explanation of all behavior; this ties into his "perspective of life", which he regards as "beyond good and evil", denying a universal morality for all human beings. Religion and the master and slave moralities feature prominently as Nietzsche re-evaluates deeply held humanistic beliefs, portraying even domination, appropriation and injury to the weak as not universally objectionable.

The developing story of Mr. Robot constantly raises ethical and metaphysical issues. What happens to our personal identity when it’s extended into cyberspace and an array of electronic devices? Are we in control of our online lives or are we being controlled? What does our right to privacy mean in a world where millions of people can observe what we’re doing and saying? Is a virtual currency true money and could it replace traditional money? Can there be healthy forms of drug addiction? Can some types of so-called mental illness be useful and beneficial?

Beyond Good and Evil (World Classics, Unabridged) by Friedrich Nietzsche Summary

Beyond Good And Evil, originally published in 1886, is a book in which the author shows the weaknesses in the moral premises and prejudices of philosophers. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. 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 perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. The work consists of 296 numbered sections and an "epode" (or "aftersong") entitled "From High Mountains." The sections are organized into nine parts: Part One: On the Prejudices of Philosophers Part Two: The Free Spirit Part Three: The Religious Essence Part Four: Maxims and Interludes Part Five: On the Natural History of Morals Part Six: We Scholars Part Seven: Our Virtues Part Eight: Peoples and Fatherlands Part Nine: What is Noble?

Abraxas: Beyond Good and Evil by Michael Faust Summary

An extraordinary division exists between Western and Eastern religious thinking. No one in the mainstream media ever draws any attention to it. Why is this debate never allowed to happen? One thing is certain: either everyone in the East is going to hell, or the Western “believers” are the most deluded people in history. Was Western religious thinking ever compatible with Eastern religion and, if so, what caused the astonishing divergence of later history? What happened to one of the oldest religions in the world, belonging to the mysterious secret society known as the Illuminati, the first Grand Master of which was the demigod Pythagoras? Is the God of Abraham actually the Devil, as the ancient Gnostics maintained? Is this planet of ours hell, ruled over by the Prince of Darkness masquerading as God? Here is wisdom - the True God is Abraxas. His is the same message as Nietzsche's: we must learn to live beyond good and evil.

Nietzsche's Task by Laurence Lampert Summary

When Nietzsche published Beyond Good and Evil in 1886, he told a friend that it was a book that would not be read properly until “around the year 2000.” Now Laurence Lampert sets out to fulfill this prophecy by providing a section by section interpretation of this philosophical masterpiece that emphasizes its unity and depth as a comprehensive new teaching on nature and humanity. According to Lampert, Nietzsche begins with a critique of philosophy that is ultimately affirmative, because it shows how philosophy can arrive at a defensible ontological account of the way of all beings. Nietzsche next argues that a new post-Christian religion can arise out of the affirmation of the world disclosed to philosophy. Then, turning to the implications of the new ontology for morality and politics, Nietzsche argues that these can be reconstituted on the fundamental insights of the new philosophy. Nietzsche’s comprehensive depiction of this anti-Platonic philosophy ends with a chapter on nobility, in which he contends that what can now be publicly celebrated as noble in our species are its highest achievements of mind and spirit.

Reading Nietzsche by Douglas Burnham Summary

"Beyond Good and Evil" is a concise and comprehensive statement of Nietzsche's mature philosophy and is an ideal entry point into Nietzsche's work as a whole. Pithy, lyrical and densely complex, "Beyond Good and Evil" demands that its readers are already familiar with key Nietzschean concepts - such as the will-to-power, perspectivism or eternal recurrence - and are able to leap with Nietzschean agility from topic to topic, across metaphysics, psychology, religion, morality and politics. "Reading Nietzsche" explains the key concepts, the range of Nietzsche's concerns, and highlights Nietzsche's writing strategies that are the key to understanding his work and processes of thought. In its close analysis of the text, "Reading Nietzsche" reassesses this most creative of philosophers and presents a significant contribution to the study of his thought. In setting this analysis within a comprehensive survey of Nietzsche's ideas, the book is a guide both to this key work and to Nietzsche's philosophy more generally.

Par-delà le bien et le mal by Friedrich Nietzsche Summary

Edition enrichie (introduction, notes, chronologie et bibliographie) Le problème de la valeur du vrai s'est présenté à nous, - ou bien est-ce nous qui nous sommes présentés à ce problème ? Qui de nous ici est Oedipe ? Qui la Sphinx ? C'est, comme il semble, un véritable rendez-vous de problèmes et de questions. - Et, le croirait-on ? Il me semble, en fin de compte, que le problème n'a jamais été posé jusqu'ici, que nous avons été les premiers à l'apercevoir, à l'envisager, à prendre le risque de le traiter. Car il y a des risques à courir, et peut-être n'en est-il pas de plus grands. Friedrich Nietzsche. C'est d'abord à une radicale remise en question de la vérité que procède Nietzsche dans Par-delà le bien et le mal (1886). Ce texte d'une écriture étincelante, férocement critique, met en effet au jour, comme un problème majeur jusque-là occulté, inaperçu, celui de la valeur. Il y destitue les positions philosophiques passées et présentes (autant de croyances), et stigmatise, en les analysant un à un, l'ensemble des préjugés moraux qui sous-tendent notre civilisation. L'entreprise, pourtant, n'est pas uniquement négative : elle débouche sur l'annonce, dans le prolongement d'Ainsi parlait Zarathoustra, de « nouveaux philosophes » - « philosophes d'un dangereux peut-être » qui devront désormais assumer l'inflexible hypothèse de la vie comme « volonté de puissance ».
