Beyond Good and Evil
There probably are not many men who had more reason than Nietzsche to feel resentful and miserable: he g...more

i)I hate Germans and their silly jingoistic sense of self-worth.
ii)Women are fucking stupid and have no depth. 'They're not even shallow.'
"It is with Germans almost as it is with women: one never fathoms their depths; they don't have any, that is all."
iii)No bloody German university or professor spares a thought for my writings. Miserable old fools. I approve of the lone, g...more
If Nietzsche had started here – rather than nearly ending with this thought – he might have been more comprehensible. His readers might have said – ‘oh, right, so that is how it is going to be, is it? We’re dealing with some smart-arse that is going to play games with us – well, play away…’
But, he doesn’t start here – he starts here:
“SUPPOSING that Truth is a woman--what then?”
Now, my lecturer at university go...more
Rather than suggest that you read any or all of his works, I've taken the liberty of creating a "Nietzsche Book Generator" that you can use to construct your very own philosophical tomes, in the comfort of your own home!
Just follow these simple steps:
1) Make one or more completel...more
Nietzsche posits that the above mentioned virtues and aesthetic and or moral imperatives (or indeed any imperatives) are merely legacy, the result of Darwinian (although he does not use this word) qualities which have ensured the survival and prosperity of the ‘issuing’ authority. Goo...more

Nietzsche, Nietzsche, Nietzsche, your alternative position on morality, your 'will to power', your fucking sexism is giving me a headache. I used to think that Nietzsche's 'good means bad and bad means good' was really cool. It was my type of philosophy, I thought. Yes Nietzsche, Art SHOULD make you think and who is to say what is right anyway? I'm down with be...more

no, he never existed, he's another chain or anchor that man put on himself to limit potential, and yet another means of putting a limit on personal freedom. Now that the Judeo-Christian moral code, and other moral codes like it have been laid to rest, we can finally make something of ourselves.
Nietzsche makes the claim that he is here to clear the way for the coming Ubermensch much in the same way that John the Baptist claimed to clear the way for Christ.

Friedrich Nietzsche seems to be a philosophical writer, who to me, has become a bigger legend than his own writing demands. Having read his work I found that I was surprised by both the wordiness and the repetitive nature of his actual writing. In fact to put it flippantly, most of his arguments in this book come down to: 'everything is meaningless and everything is subjective'. Of course that's a gross exaggeration but it is how Nietzsche reads to me. I challenge anyone else to explain to me wh...more

I saw many negative reviews for this work, most of which reflected something similar to "Nietzche is stupid" or "Sexists pig!" or, alas, even "This was too much to handle and therefore it sucks." So, seeing this incredibly biased, instantaneous hardening towards the subject, I felt the need the comment.
First of all, if the only thing one can say after reading a philosophical treatise is "That is entirely stupid," then one clearly isn't meant for the realm of philosophy, at least at this point in...more

What a load of monkeyfuck.
Nietzsche sounds like a heavily upgraded version of the typical sexually frustrated teenager (it goes without saying that the latter take to Nietzsche's work like cats to tuna). The cornerstone of his hateful "philosophy" is shameless bigotry. He is convinced that there is such a thing as people that are "meant" to be "superior", that it is good for people to oppress each other in fierce master-slave relationships, that women are barel...more

'Beyond Good and Evil' is currently the only work I've read by the famous philosopher, and I've got to admit to being a little baffled as to why it is so popular. Rather than build up particular arguments of philosophy and attempt to convince his reader of its details, Nietzsche seems content to merely gain-say everybody...more
Firstly, this book is not worthless, obscurantist garbage - as i've wanted to say to users of this line of argument for some time: you should expect yourself to read at the authors level not the author to write at your level. This is no...more
Whatsoever (concentration problems aside) I'm not very pleased with this book. I think Nietzsche is just repeating himself again with all the Wagner and Schopenhauer's critic (coff obsession coff). There are some interesting notes about morals and religio...more
His emphasis on truth, that there is nothing good and bad but only truth, is an enlightening idea for me. He even extends to the idea of "brutal truth" that people should be able to accept the brutality of truth. Nietzsche offers a moral deed whether be social and politi...more
Some of what he says is a jumbled mess. Other stuff seem outdated and a bit prejudiced against the most random people like for example his rants against the English about the most...more
