These annotations really help with understanding the book, since Nietzsche uses a lot of obscure terms (he was a Philologist, after all) and references a lot of ideas that are most likely foreign to readers, (such as constructs of Stirnian Nihilism and Schopenhaur's writings) and the annotations all help guide the reader to a new plateau of understanding. This version of 'Beyond Good And Evil,' as well as some of his other writings can all be found translated into English and annotated in the volume "Basic Writings Of Nietzsche."(less)

I can think of few instances where an author's reputation is more different from the reality of who he was, what he believed, and what he wrote--perhaps only Machiavelli has been as profoundly misunderstood by history. Today, Nietzsche tends to be thought of as a depressive nihilist, a man who believed in nothing, and an apologist for the atrocities of fascism--but no description could be further from the truth.

There probably are not many men who had more reason than Nietzsche to feel resentful

I recommend, but with a warning. The vast majority of people will not get much out of this book. Filtering through these reviews, I see a lot of people who are clearly not meant for Nietzsche's writing. They tend to fall under a couple of categories
1) Easily Offended: when Nietzsche says something they find offensive, they are turned off reading the book. Nietzsche will offend you. However...

For those of you who are unfamiliar with him, Friedrich Nietzsche was an angry little man who protected himself from the Mean Old World by swaddling himself in an exaggerated ego (and an even more exaggerated moustache).

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!

290. Every deep thinker is more afraid of being understood than of being misunderstood.

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:

A bit of well-meaning advice right at the start: don't read Nietzsche for moral insight or you'll drive yourself insane with rage, or else inhale some of the poison gas here. Read him instead for his insights into the nature of value, truth and knowledge. Nietzsche angers us most when he most successfully shows us how naked we humans are without our most cherished faiths - whether it be in human nature, natural law, the power of reason, or in a transcendent being to ground our incomplete, finite ...more

Nietzsche definitely had the Will to Power. The Power to Argue Logically, Employing Thoroughly Supported, Well-Developed Premises and Reaching Incisive, Cogent Conclusions…not so much. Still, I did find quite a few of his wittily-phrased sass attacks pretty entertaining. Mostly.

Why exactly, should I strive to be kind, and not cruel? Why am I being taught to be fair and not selfish all my life? Why should I subscribe to equal rights, non discrimination, egalitarianism and freedom of speech?

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

I enjoyed the writings of this philosopher. The author was a strong thinker of the eighteen hundreds. His philosophy goes strongly against the western thought of Christianity. Instead of the slave morality that Christianity imbrases, his philosophy celebrates living in the moment.
I recommend this book to all.
Enjoy and Be Blessed.

Beyond Good and Evil is a profound book about the Power, passion, and love of individuals. Nietzsche offers us in this book a way of life, in which one's Will to Power is the fundamental principle of society, and the individual.

Nietzsche criticizes every philosophy hitherto, as having been deceived by a presupposed moral system, or at least a moral end-goal, therefore not reaching for truth, rather, making truths so as to validate its moral preachings.

Christianity too, fell into the trap of valu

ما وراء الخير والشر هو أهم كتب نيتشه بعد هكذا تكلم زرادشت وأكثرهم صعوبة وإرهاقًا في القراءة، فكانت الكثير من المقاطع بحاجة إلى الإعادة عدة مرّات كي أستطيع فهمها بشكل جيد.
الكتاب نقد للحداثة كما قال نيتشه عنه، فلا يستثنى أي فعل حداثي سياسيًا أو أخلاقيًا أو دينيًا إلا وتحدث عنه، وكان أكثر تركيزًا على عرض مفهوم اللا أخلاقية أكثر من أي نقطة أخرى في فلسفته.
ويظل نيتشه من أقرب الفلاسفة إليَّ وأكثرهم تأثيرًا فيَّ بعد كانط.

As with my review of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the below comprises the notes I jotted down—deciphered as best could be managed against the near hieroglyphic obfuscation of the chicken riot I call handwriting—when this was read some dozen or so years ago. As I failed to consistently make clear what were Nietzsche's words, as set against my own thoughts on the latter, the non-italicized portions may represent one giant act of plagiarizing. Luckily for me, the man seldom presented himself as possessi ...more

What a strange book this is. I’m not sure that I am comfortable labeling it “philosophy.” Thoughtful, yes. Interesting, definitely. Philosophical, sure. But philosophy?

Nietzsche is a powerful and brilliant writer. His prose, swift; his sentences, roving; his tone, pugnacious. But I frequently wished he would decelerate from his brisk allegro to a moderato, to a tempo where he can better express his ideas systematically. But perhaps that’s not the point. After all, Nietzsche was aiming for destru

Although not what I expected, Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil was a more than satisfying meditation on morality. It wasn't what I expected because most of Nietzsche's words were spent prophesying about and discussing the "herd" mentality of democracy's slave culture, which prepares us for his final, magnificent essay, "What is Noble," but the overthrowing of my expectations was never a problem.

Too many pass over Nietzsche because they are pre-offended, missing what is powerful and vital in his

The passage which really summed up this book for me was "Every deep thinker is more afraid of being understood than of being misunderstood." Yep, right there. It's what annoys me about a lot of philosophy - I just want people to be able to write clearly and honestly about what they actually mean. Nietzsche's language is so dense and impenetrable (and clearly deliberately so) that it is frustrating to read. There's definitely a whiff of the emperor's new clothes about this book.

Difficult to rate this. Read as a group read and I'll be the first to admit that reading "philosophy" is not something that I'm usually drawn to.

I will say that the concepts put forward by Nietzsche did make me question. This was my first read of Nietzsche so wasn't too sure what to expect. I did find following his thoughts and arguments difficult to grasp at times so the group read was a massive help.

“Dur Wille zur Macht” (the Will to Power): what Nietzsche saw as the prime motivator in the lives of mankind: ambition, achievement, the struggle to reach as high as possible with one’s life. Often contrasted with Viktor Frankl’s view (Meaning) and Freud’s view (Pleasure).

This was one of my main takeaways from “Beyond Good and Evil” (BGE), my first foray into Nietzsche’s writings. BGE is a series of 9 essays and a concluding poem (“Aftersong”). Each essay is subdivided into smaller, consecutivel

so... God is dead,

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.

The hardest part of this whole process is to declare this book as "read". I'm not done with it. I've reread chapters, flipped back and forth to weave the necessary web to link up the scattered pieces, the clues. I've reread and re-interpreted aphorisms over and over... how can I say I'm "done" when I'm only becoming acquainted?

With a philosopher nothing at all is impersonal.

As an armchair Platonist, I had a personal aversion to Nietzsche, whose whole purpose in life seemed to be to overthrow Platonism. After reading "Beyond Good and Evil", however, my attitude changed from aversion to pity, that is, pity in the Nietzschean sense.

To illustrate my view of Nietzsche and his relation to Plato, let me introduce a Chinese fictional/mythical character, Sun Wukong (孙悟空), also known as the Monkey King. The Monkey King challeng

Nietzsche is for the atheist what Charles Spurgeon was for Christian preachers. He has a creative way of saying things and this book is filled with one liners. He makes me think of a preacher, in that he says extreme things with absolute confidence, but does not back anything up or go into much depth. This book seemed to me not so much about going beyond good and evil, but rather a justification of evil.

Utterly meaningless star rating alert! BGE is really a great book, the best place to start with Nietzsche, I think, because it states his most important ideas in digestible chunks (unlike Zarathustra, which is so over-wrought and self-regarding that I have trouble even flicking through it), and has no aspirations towards unity (and so is unlike Genealogy of Morality, which achieves that unity at the price of being transparently silly). Friedrich works best in paragraphs, and that's what he gives ...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

4.0 stars. It has been a long time since I read this (almost 20 years) and so I do not remember a ton about the subject matter and this is on my list to re-read in the near future. Therefore, without getting into the merits of Nietzsche's arguments, I do remember this being a fascinating philosophical discussion with some interesting ideas on the basis and nature of morality that looked at many of our preconceived ideas in a new light.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844–1900) was a German philosopher of the late 19th century who challenged the foundations of Christianity and traditional morality. He was interested in the enhancement of individual and cultural health, and believed in life, creativity, power, and the realities of the world we live in, rather than those situated in a world beyond.

The term contradicts itself: whatever can be common always has little value.
