Beyond Good and Evil
Beyond Good and Evil | Friedrich Nietzsche
This work dramatically rejects the tradition of Western thought with its notions of truth and God, good and evil. Nietzsche demonstrates 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 imposes their own "will to power" upon the world.

Bailing around the 10% mark. I think philosophy books are just not for me... this is going straight over my head and I just don‘t get anything out of it. I had a similar reaction to Peter Singer‘s One World Now book. For me these books are more suited as text books rather than laymen trying to get some exposure to the ideas.

My fave non-fiction novel. Yes, I admit, its sexist even for the time but that's forgivable if you know the man's history with women. Beyond that its a concise and timely philosophy that encourages one to become their own person. I even prefer it to Thus Spoke Zarathustra (which it summarizes) although the imagery suffers for the sake of brevity.

There might be a #moral or two to be gleaned from these books. Perhaps I'll know once I actually read it 😬

vivastory I've only read tiny bits here and there. So intimidating... 2y
Cinfhen I‘m sure there‘s lot to be garnered but like @vivastory said👆🏽#intimidating 2y
vivastory @Cinfhen Glad I'm not the only one! I do like philosophy, especially aphorisms by Schopenhauer & Cioran. But Nietzsche can be opaque. 2y

batsy @vivastory @Cinfhen I find him very intimidating, too! But proves to be useful for a photo challenge 😁 2y

Cathythoughts Nietzsche 😱. Nice one 👍🏻I remember dipping into him years ago. I think my Nietzsche days are over. I‘m sure he‘s brilliant, but hard going 📖 2y
shawnmooney Good luck finding your Nietzsche in life! 😛😂 2y
batsy @Cathythoughts Thanks 😘I too sometimes feel the time has passed... I keep waiting until I'm smarter to read him but what I do know with each passing year is that I'm not getting smarter 🙃 2y
batsy @shawnmooney oh my gawd Shawn!! Is this the best or worst pun 🤔😂😘 2y
Cathythoughts @shawnmooney 😂😂Love It 2y
REPollock Would it help to know that he was a misogynist douchebag with some interesting ideas? I had to read him with a lot of 🙄 & 🍷 & oh-honey-🤔🤭🤫😬 2y
batsy I've heard about that aspect of him, @REPollock 😣Also that his worldview was rather reactionary. When I read him the 🍷🍷🍷 will definitely be necessary 2y

150 years later and Nietzsche's philosophy is still as insightful and radical as ever.

In the end it must be as it is and always has been: great things remain for the great, abysses for the profound, nuances and shudders for the refined, and, in brief, all that is rare for the rare.

There is no such thing as moral phenomena, but only a moral interpretation of phenomena.

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.

It wasn't what i hoped to expect, the book was about personal views about its time Germany and such. To put simply; it is neither a novel nor story to enjoy or learn from. This kind of book for those who study philosophy's history.

"One loves ultimately one's desires, not the thing desired."
