Reading Nietzsche: An Analysis of  Beyond Good and Evil


Add your own review!

Overview

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.

Reviews

An engaging, detailed and lucid guide to one of Nietzsche's most important works. Reading Nietzsche brings out the exciting and vibrant nature of Nietzsche's writing. A great introduction to Nietzsche and a sophisticated commentary on Beyond Good and Evil. - Claire Colebrook, University of Edinburgh No one can expect to win a war of wits with Nietzsche. What Reading Nietzsche offers is a commentary that is reflective, expansive, judicious and accurate. First-time readers of Nietzsche will benefit from having this book by their side as a guide, whilst readers more familiar with Beyond Good and Evil will benefit from the reflective passages on particularly knotty sections. - Rex Welshon, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs
