Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil A Reader's Guide by Christa Davis Acampora, Keith Ansell-Pearson

This book presents a student-friendly introduction to one of Nietzsche's most widely-read and studied texts. Beyond Good and Evil contains Nietzsche's mature philosophy of the free spirit. Although it is one of his most widely read texts, it is a notoriously difficult piece of philosophical writing. The authors demonstrate in clear and precise terms why it is to be regarded as Nietzsche's philosophical masterpiece and the work of a revolutionary genius. This Reader's Guide is the ideal companion to study, offering guidance on: philosophical and historical context, key themes, reading the text, reception and influence and further reading. Continuum Reader's Guides are clear, concise and accessible introductions to key texts in literature and philosophy. Each book explores the themes, context, criticism and influence of key works, providing a practical introduction to close reading, guiding students towards a thorough understanding of the text. They provide an essential, up-to-date resource, ideal for undergraduate students.


The genius of this book is that it manages to be philosophically deep and contextually rich even while fulfilling the most basic explanatory tasks - this is a splendid introduction Foucault Studies, issue 18

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
