Beyond Good and Evil

Friedrich Nietzsche
R. J. Hollingdale (Translator


In stock

Nietzsche, in Beyond Good and Evil, accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. 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.

Friedrich Nietzsche
The Joyous Science

New to Penguin Classics, The Joyous Science is Nietzsche’s most personal book – and one of his best

The Joyous Science is a liberating voyage of discovery as Nietzsche’s realization that ‘God is dead’ and his critique of morality, the arts and modernity give way to an exhilarating doctrine of self-emancipation and the concept of eternal recurrence. Here is Nietzsche at his most personal and affirmative; in his words, this is a book of ‘exuberance, restlessness, contrariety and April showers’. With its unique voice and style, its playful combination of poetry and prose, and its invigorating quest for self-emancipation, The Joyous Science is a literary tour de force and quite possibly Nietzsche’s best book.
