Beyond Good and Evil is a philosophical essay written by Friedrich Nietzsche and published in 1886. It is one of the key texts for understanding 19th century philosophy.
Nietzsche exposes in this book his rejection of the moral emptiness of contemporary thinkers, accusing them of lacking from any critical sense and of accepting Judeo-Christian morality without opposition or analysis.
The book deals with all the main points of Nietzsche's philosophical maturity and develops in a more concrete way previous ideas that he had launched in works such as Thus Spake Zarathustra.
The author himself paid the cost of publishing and producing the book. However, it did not have much success or attention at the time of its release, instead it has been gaining popularity over time.
"1. The Will to Truth, which is to tempt us to many a hazardous enterprise, the famous Truthfulness of which all philosophers have hitherto spoken with respect, what questions has this Will to Truth not laid before us! What strange, perplexing, questionable questions! It is already a long story; yet it seems as if it were hardly commenced".
