Produktbeschreibung
Nietzsche's Beyond Good And Evil is, without, doubt one of the landmark works of modern philosophy. First published in 1886 it contained the author's mature thinking on such topics as truth, God, morality and the Will to Power, and unleashed a radical new philosophical sensibility which was to have an enormous impact on the intellectual and political landscape of the 20th Century. A Beginner's Guide to Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil offers a concise and readable summary of this difficult text, geared toward students embarking on their studies (at A-level, or on undergraduate degree courses) and general readers. Well-illustrated with tables, diagrams, and images, it provides a clear explanation of the ideas, arguments and terminology to be found in Nietzsche's often enigmatic prose, and balances this with critical analysis. It also provides references to further readings, a glossary of difficult terms and relevant biographical and historical information, making A Beginner's Guide to Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil an ideal companion for those new to the study of this challenging and often misunderstood classic.
