Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil - Further Reading

The primary aim of this section is to highlight and expand upon some of the central themes of Beyond Good and Evil, and within Nietzsche's philosophy as a whole. In doing this, I hope to draw links between different aspects of Nietzsche's work, and encourage broader comparisons to be made with other philosophers and areas of philosophy. As such, you will find below a steadily growing number of essays (Philosophical Themes), written either by me, or contributed by other philosophers. There is also a list of useful books for Recommended Reading (which are also evaluated in the Reviews section), and a selection of Useful Links. These sections are being gradually added to, so please be patient if they seem thin at first. If you find any books or links that you think should be listed here, then please contact me.

Useful Links

I have organised the links roughly into three sections: Online Texts, Background Information, and Topics and Themes. I don't want to list every site that has anything at all to say about Nietzsche, but only the especially useful and distinctive ones - so, either useful summaries, distinctive resources, or original approaches. I'm aiming to keep the lists relatively small, but I am always on the lookout for good sites, so if you do come across any - or if any of the links are dead - then please contact me.

Online Texts Background Information

Recommended Reading

This is a list of useful books on Nietzsche and Beyond Good and Evil. I will only list here books that I have reviewed on the site, or am intending to review (but which I know are good) - so, if there isn't yet a review, there will be eventually. Reviewed books will have a LAUD rating (see here for more information), and you can click on the title to be taken to the review.

I will add to this list as I come across useful books. If you want to recommend a book, then contact me with the details and I will try to track it down. Or, if you are a publisher who wants to send a book for review, contact me to arrange this.

L = Layperson - This book will appeal to those with no specific knowledge of philosophy (this does not mean that it is 'easy', or 'for dummies', but merely that you don't need to have studied philosophy to find it interesting or enjoyable). A = A-level student (UK)/Freshman (US) - This book will be useful for those studying philosophy. It assumes that you will want a certain level of detail and coverage of the subject, and that you are not just reading it for pleasure. However, it is still an introductory text. U = Undergraduate - Generally, a book of this type will provide more detail and be more challenging than a beginner's guide. So, it will either assume some previous knowledge, or else treat the subject in a way that will be useful for more in-depth study. As such, it will be most suitable for those who have aleady read an introductory text, are fairly familiar with the general nature of the subject, and are looking to develop their understanding further. D = Detailed study at degree level. Books of this type are generally quite hard, and - because of their level of detail and depth of argument - are not suitable for beginners or as introductions to the subject. However, they may still be useful for those who have become familiar with the topic in question, and wish to delve deeper (perhaps in search of advanced criticism or clarification of difficult points).

Philosophical Themes

My intention here is to bring out some of interesting themes in Nietzsche's work, and to provide links to other philosophers and areas of philosophy. As such, whilst they aim to be clear, the essays may present a more challenging read than other introductory material, and will not necessarily cater to beginners. NOTE: Unless stated, you may assume me (Gareth Southwell) to be the author of the essay - though I will be doing my best to invite contributions from other philosophers (in which case, their authorship will be clearly stated).
