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.
