Description

Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886.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 favour 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 back of the book literally says it was printed on February 27, 2020. The flow of the text is everywhere, and totally incoherent. There is another book printed in the middle of it. there is a massive low-quality .jpeg image of Nietzsche on the front of it.

i feel strangely let down by this design and i''m not sure why. i think i expected the red banner to be PART of the book and not just a sleeve?
it was wrinkled on the inside and it also wasn''t folded correctly so the sleeve was sticking out at weird angles, but that wasn''t the end of the world.
i think what gets to me is that it''s the annoying sort of texture that will leave a smear/scratch behind when anything brushes across it no matter how lightly. i''ll probably just take the whole thing off and let the book live in it''s darkened glory.
the book by itself is pure black, including the spine, you won''t be able to tell what it is when it''s on your bookshelf unless you know what you''re looking for and reading the title is an effort unless you''re fairly up close and personal.
which works out better for me because it''s less likely that i have to explain to my mom that i''m not integrating myself into a shadow society of lunatics, i just really want anyone who comes over and sees that i own this book to think i''m really open minded and intellectual.

stupid commentary aside, he really is a brilliant writer. what an eloquent dude. what an amazing moustache. absolute legend.

ps. pages are indeed as thin as everyone says but it wasn''t really something i noticed while i was reading

Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil is best read with a brief preface. I’ll try to supply some words which could help.

Since the Renaissance and Enlightenment, European intellectuals had oft abandoned belief in the Biblical God. From the American founders to Edward Gibbon, it was fashionable to regard miracles, prophecies and divine intervention as so much superstition.

When Nietzsche proclaimed the death of God he meant something different. He meant there are no laws of nature undergirding the universe, no immutable logic for all rational beings to conform to and, most notoriously, no morality. This is why he speaks so much against Spinoza and Voltaire. They each recognized some form of the deity which either was one with the universe or stood above it and provided the philosophical support the Enlightenment movement needed.

Contrast Nietzsche, for whom each philosopher creates his own truth, each artist his own world, each man his own values. He is beyond God, or as he put it, beyond good and evil.

Nietzsche saw that Western civilization, even in the nineteenth century, would topple like a Jenga tower if the essential deity piece was removed. Why follow Victorian virtue if man is just another animal? Why create art that mimics nature if there are no objective laws for this nature? Why even trust in reason if it is nothing but another way of obtaining nourishment and reproduction?

And so Nietzsche doesn’t just criticize the believers but also the artists, the intellectuals and anyone who continued to persist in recognizing an external, rational order in nature. And, of course, Nietzsche was later to fall into severe vertigo after this vision. Perhaps it was simply too high for one man to maintain.

Regardless of his biography, Beyond Good and Evil is arguably the last work Nietzsche wrote while sane and thus highly recommended as the final thoughts of this problematic yet great thinker.

The quality of this copy is very poor and is only HALF the book. I''ve accidentally purchased multiple books recently from this publisher, ''CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform''. On some of the books they don''t even list the publisher name. But in the back it says they all come from Copeland, Texas. I asked Amazon customer service to confirm that they are the publisher.

I would not recommend them. The quality of their prints are very low. these aren''t even books, they are PDFs slapped together in a haphazard fashion.

I bought this version of the book because it’s a hardcover. Wish i’d known that the sleeve only covers half of its height though. I’ll probably just take it off since it looks so awkward on the book.

Underneath the sleeve, the title is pressed into the hardcover but Nietzsche’s name isn’t, which is kind of important.

The margins are also way too short. It feels weird putting my thumbs over the words to hold the book, and the whole thing feels generally too thin in my hands.

I’m only rating this 1/5 stars so people see this and know this before buying lol

Good for the price The paper is decent (softness) however you can see through it onto the next page a little bit. Does not interfere with my reading at all but if you look for it you will see it.

Hands down probably the most aesthetic and low-key edgy design you can find of Nietzsche''s Beyond Good and Evil in 2020, but the text inside is seriously packing some glaring typos, missing punctuations, and serious misspellings of Latin/French/German words. It''s a shame that every time I had trouble digesting what Nietzsche is saying it''s due to bad editing and not due to the actual content of his expression. Searching online for other versions of the same paragraph is just annoying when reading.

This is not what you''re looking for.

Poorly crafted, cheaply printed ebook with lots of typographical errors. Spells "copyright" wrong on the inside cover. Was printed the day I ordered it. I really should have read some of the reviews before purchasing this item. So incredibly disappointed with this purchase.

I knew this wouldn''t be an easy read, but I thought I''d understand at least half of it! I''ve read a few of the philosophy classics in the past and am not one to shy away from difficult literature, but my God this was difficult. I made it about two-thirds of the way through and gave up! I''d say I understood about 10 - 20% of it. That being said, it is poorly written. People tend to hero-worship intellectual colossi like Nietsche, but this is not a way to write if you want to communicate ideas, regardless of who you are. It just seemed to be rambling with very badly constructed sentences. Of course, that could be the translation, but I can only go by what''s in the book. I would say that it''s a much better option to read a guide to Nietzschean philosophy and have the concepts summarised in a more accessible way.
