Beyond Good and Evil confirmed Nietzsche's position as the towering European philosopher of his age. The work dramatically rejects the traditional of Western thought with its notions of truth and God, good and evil. Nietzsche seeks to demonstrate that the Christian world is steeped in a false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. With wit and energy, he turns from this critique to a philosophy that celebrates the present and demands that the individual impose their own 'will to power' upon the world. This edition includes a commentary on the text by the translator and Michael Tanner's introduction, which explains some of the more abstract passages in Beyond Good and Evil .

I understand completely why readers dislike Nietzsche, but it is important to recognize this book not as an aberration but almost a prophecy of the changes that were to come about in the world very soon thereafter. Nietzsche methodically reduces a great deal of historical thinking to dust, all the while insisting that his new world requires new thinking and new inventions by which to create great things.
