Beyond Good and Evil

#ad
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform #ad - Beyond good and evil: prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886. 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 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.

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.

Beyond Good and Evil #ad - It draws on and expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but with a more critical and polemical approach.

The Genealogy of Morals Dover Thrift Editions

#ad
Dover Publications #ad - The next essay, looking into the origins of guilt and punishment, shows how the concept of justice was born — and how internalization of this concept led to the development of what people called "the soul. In the third essay, Nietzsche dissects the meaning of ascetic ideals. It is not nietzsche's intention to reject ascetic ideals, "slave" morality, rather than being eternal verities, or internalized values out of hand; his main concern is to show that culture and morality, are human-made.

Written in response to a book on the origins of morality by his erstwhile friend Paul Rée, the three essays comprising The Genealogy of Morals — all three advancing the critique of Christian morality set forth in Beyond Good and Evil — are among Nietzsche's most sustained and cohesive work. In the first essay — starting from a linguistic analysis of words such as "good, " "bad, " and "evil" — Nietzsche sets up a contrast between what he calls "master" morality and "slave" morality and shows how strength and action have often been replaced by passivity and nihilism.

The Genealogy of Morals Dover Thrift Editions #ad - Dover Publications. Whether or not you agree with all of his conclusions, his writing is of such clarity and brilliance that you will find reading The Genealogy of Morals nothing short of exhilarating.

The Republic Dover Thrift Editions

#ad
Dover Publications #ad - Dover Publications. It appears here in the fine translation by the English classicist Benjamin Jowett. Contemplates the elements of an ideal state, serving as the forerunner for such other classics of political thought as Cicero's De Republica, St. Augustine's city of God, and Thomas More's Utopia. Written in the form of a dialog in which socrates questions his students and fellow citizens, The Republic concerns itself chiefly with the question, "What is justice?" as well as Plato's theory of ideas and his conception of the philosopher's role in society.

To explore the latter, he invents the allegory of the cave to illustrate his notion that ordinary men are like prisoners in a cave, while philosophers are those who venture outside the cave and see things as they really are, observing only the shadows of things, and whose task it is to return to the cave and tell the truth about what they have seen.

The Republic Dover Thrift Editions #ad - Crime and Punishment. The will to Power. Harper Perennial. Often ranked as the greatest of Plato's many remarkable writings, this celebrated philosophical work of the fourth century B. C. This dynamic metaphor expresses at once the eternal conflict between the world of the senses the cave and the world of ideas the world outside the cave, and the philosopher's role as mediator between the two.

High school and college students, as well as lovers of classical literature and philosophy, will welcome this handsome and inexpensive edition of an immortal work.
