In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche lays into rival philosophers for what he characterised as their lack of critical sense and unthinking acceptance of Judaeo-Christian premises in their considerations of morality.
The work examines the realm beyond good and evil, in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.
This tome should also be read with the foreknowledge that comes with the role that Nietzsche's work played in giving the illusion of intellectual substance to the dark history of Germany in the 1930s and 1940s and the destruction that was to be worked, partly in the name of the nihilist ideas which he espoused.
As a philosopher, and oft-quoted, Nietzsche still polarises opinion.
