On the Genealogy of Morals

  • Jul 27, 2010

This book is mostly geared towards psychology and/or religion class, as most of it is exploring why we see things as "Good" and "Evil", whether its through a religious way (God says so), or a mental way (the community say so).


In order to fully understand this book, you must first understand the Bible, as the author uses many bible quotes in helping us understand his way of thinking. 

Half of this book is him disproving what other philosophers have established, and the second half is establishing his own beliefs.

This is not an easy reader, in order to fully understand and grab onto what he's saying, you need to read each sentence and understand what it means.

This book is a true masterpiece and is recommended to anyone who enjoys challenging your brain and understanding why we think how we think.

Quick Tip by . July 29, 2010
On the Genealogy of Morals is easily the most accessible of Nietzsche's texts. Still it's a challenging read - that will challenge any reader who takes it seriously.

About this book


On the Genealogy of Morals (1887) is a book about interpretation and the history of ethics which raises profoundly disquieting issues about the violence of both. This is the most sustained of Nietzsche's later works and offers one of the fullest expressions of his characteristic concerns. The introduction places his ideas within the cultural context of his own time and stresses the relevance of his work for a contemporary audience.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
