Free Download: Friedrich Nietzsche, “Beyond Good and Evil”
"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become
a monster. And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."
“In ‘Beyond Good and Evil’, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.”
