Publisher's Summary

In Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their consideration of morality. 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 contextual nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

This is a major work by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, whose writings have been deeply influential on subsequent generations of philosophers.

one of the best.

Wether or not you agree with the topic is not what I am rating. Some of Freds ideas are violently original. What I will say is that the narrator has a great pace and his voice is easy to listen too. The author does the topics justice and explains some philosophical ideas well without over simplification. This is not philosophy for dummies but at the same time its not Being and Time. Nice middle ground. If your a fan of the Freddy N. then yo will enjoy.

Misogyny and Madness?

Ol' Friedrich was a man of his times, and often he reads as an jilted misanthrope doing his best to remain misunderstood.

But, please, don't have this stop you from reading Beyond Good and Evil. Yhe language is often sublime and it holds wisdom, insights and questions of deep relevance to our modern, technological, infected lives and our struggles with our world. With what do we replace the lie of Christian morality? Nihilism? What are the mechanics and nature of Will? What is the value of Truth?

Sometimes there's even inklings of answers.

Intelligence murders innocence...

It was always the liking of an individual that was the best part. After attaining and perhaps living/loving with the individual of once consumed affection, the once volatile liking stage had more weight..... Before the fish was caught, the passion of the worm ensnared those not careful enough.....

Nietzsche doesn’t resonate with me like he did

There are still some gems in here but there is also a lot of crotchety old man shaking his fists at the clouds. I have read all of his books and had considered him my favorite author for many years. He still has insights and a style that are second to none, but there is a lot of crazy on here. It was narrated well and especially pronouncing all the foreign words. Nietzsche was a philologist and used many other languages to craft the perfect thought.

beautifully written dreck

it's hard to find such a beautifully written example of antiquated sexism that further seeks to empower the white male. its literally jaw dropping views towards women is so confounding and distracting from any positive message otherwise described. how the narrorator did such a great job reading this book, and presumably still face his own mother, i will never know.

Ignorant and insightful

I liked it. Though as I listened I tried to pinpoint Friedrich and my own grouping according to the book.

Will found both...

Definitely worth the listen though some thing's are spot on some are way of the mark and more shows Nietzsched personal opinion on thing's more than a good thought through response.

He haven't escaped his ego in this one.

Abstract and challenging

A very interesting read and robust way of sharing perspective of good and evil. a hard task
