My Books - A Beginner's Guide to Nietzsche's Beyond Good And Evil

Nietzsche’s Beyond Good And Evil is, without doubt, one of the landmark works of modern philosophy. First published in 1886, it contained the author’s mature thinking on such topics as truth, God, morality and the Will to Power, and unleashed a radical new philosophical sensibility which was to have an enormous impact on the intellectual and political landscape of the 20th century.

A Beginner'S Guide To Nietzsche's 'Beyond Good And Evil' offers a concise and readable summary of this difficult text, geared toward students embarking on their studies (at A-level, or on undergraduate degree courses) and general readers. Highly illustrated, including numerous tables, diagrams and drawings, it provides a clear explanation of the ideas, arguments and terminology to be found in Nietzsche’s often enigmatic prose, and balances this with critical analysis. It also provides references to further readings, a glossary of difficult terms and relevant biographical and historical information, making A Beginner'S Guide To Nietzsche's 'Beyond Good And Evil' an ideal companion for those new to the study of this challenging and often misunderstood classic.


“Anyone teaching Beyond Good And Evil will want to keep a copy of this close to hand. For those who are familiar with the text it will help to reinvigorate their approach, and for those teaching the text for the first time it will provide an excellent guide to the complexities of Nietzsche’s ideas.” George Mcwilliams, Head Of Philosophy And Ethics, Ullswater Community College

“Gareth Southwell’s Beginner’s Guide is an outstanding introduction to Nietzsche’s text: lively and approachable in tone, yet rigorous and insightful in its handling of the material. A comprehensive and well-informed treatment, this book judiciously blends detailed analysis and illuminating explanation with more wide-ranging discussion.” Duncan Large, Swansea University
