Über den Autor
German philosopher and philologist, Friedrich Nietzsche, was one of the most influential thinkers of our time. His works include critical texts on philosophy, science, cultural norms, religion and morality. His aim was the "truth" as he saw it, no matter how unpalatable, penned in a style characterised by metaphor and aphorism.
Many people who are not students of philosophy know Nietzsche for three little words. God is dead. His influence has had a lasting effect in many areas of study. This book is essential for anyone interested in understanding this man. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher and philologist. His writings covered a wide scope of topics including religion, philosophy, morality, culture, and science. Beyond Good and Evil is a philosophical work that deals with the changing values of man. Arguing that no values are absolute, such concepts as "good" and "evil" must be constantly revised to reflect contemporary thought.
