  1. On The Genealogy of Morals is made up of three essays, all of which question and critique the value of our moral judgments based on a genealogical method whereby Nietzsche examines the origins and meanings of our different moral concepts.The first essay, Good and Evil, Good and Bad contrasts what Nietzsche calls master morality and slave morality Master morality was developed by the strong, healthy, and free, who saw their own happiness as good and named it thus By contrast, they saw those who w [...]

  4. Imagine that you are in a nameless suburb, say California for example, and you stumble home drunk on bad whiskey and stoned off of cheap weed This is purely hypothetical You hover over the toilet and puke up the bad whiskey and some nameless food substance The next morning you sit on the toilet reading this book You read the lines the complete and definitive victory of atheism might free mankind of this whole feeling of guilty indebtedness towards its origin, its causa prima Atheism and a kind o [...]



  5. This treatise stands as the most sustained criticism of Judaeo Christian values, or rather, the origin of said values Nietzsche redefines them as the products of the brutal conditioning of our animal instincts over the centuries The failure to retaliate became goodness , fear into humility , submission to those who one hates obedience and cowardice into patience Discarding the methods of his contemporaries, Nietzsche comes up with a theory, which delineates how morals come to evolve within cultu [...]


  6. For all his brilliance, Nietzsche was not one for exposition or systematic investigation He writes in impassioned bursts rather than extended thoughts a style in keeping with his abhorrence for all things stale, academic, and English This quality is evident right from the preface, which is divided into several shorter prefaces These frequent breaks are maintained throughout the book, each essay being divided into chunks too short for subchapters, but too long for aphorisms.On one level, this is [...]




  7. It s difficult to identify what is most drudging about Nietzsche s Genealogy of Morals There is so much to choose from the incessant implicit boasting of how the author transcends the puerile morality of the masses or the juvenile tirades against democracy and egalitarianism or the unmistakable misogyny rife in his other writings as well or the flimsily concealed antisemitism Nietzsche s denunciations of blatant antisemitism notwithstanding or the brutish exaltation of violence and conquest or t [...]


  8. When I was an undergraduate, I tried some Nietzsche I read BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL, THE GAY SCIENCE and THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY This was reading that I did on my own and not as part of a class I don t remember how I chose those books, but I can report now with no embarassment that my reading was superficial and that I did not genuinely understand much, if any, of it More surprisingly, I did not like Nietzsche He is too much work He uses words in idiosyncratic ways that are confusing and force multiple [...]


  9. A truly delightful intellectual romp that is both entertaining and disturbing It is entertaining because Nietzsche is an outrageously brilliant writer who expresses his complex philosophical ideas in a creative way, and who makes even the most cynical ideas sound beautiful Nietzsche is truly blessed for having the analytical brain of a philosopher as well as masterful skill in sculpting beautiful phrases, like a poet It is disturbing because of Nietzsche s tremendous cynicism, which can often ma [...]






  10. Three essays each coherent This is Nietzsche s best work Almost all of his major ideas lurk within this book I would recommend the audio version There s just something about Nietzsche that when he s read aloud you just feel the contempt and frustration you know he has for mankind and even the reader of his book He ll say the world needs artist and poets He feels his truths and the reader feels them too There s good and there s bad with Nietzsche He has special dislike for women and feminism whic [...]


  11. I think it will be useful for future readers that I point out a few of Nietzsche s highly problematic ideas in this book this book is not one of my favorite Nietzsche books, but it s still full of great ideas 1 Nietzsche goes a little too far in his attack of dirtiness when he states that we should segregate the sick from the healthy, he suggests that the healthy and happy men should, keep clear of the madhouses and hospitals Didn t Nietzsche spend quite a lot of time in a madhouse 2 He also por [...]


  12. Very readable, once I got into it I would recommend to anyone wanted to make a start with Nietzsche, and it s really short too He was obviously a very troubled man as well as a bit of a psychologist I m pretty sure he wouldn t give a second thought to my opinion though I m definitely one of the sick From a history of ideas point of view, his take up of ideas about degeneration and frequent health and illness related metaphors are particularly useful And good to read in conjunction with Foucault [...]





  13. detailed and extensive account on the history of ethics and how religion and idealism has changed and shaped human morality over time It was incredibly interesting, well written and definitely worth reading.



  14. I feel like I ve been reading this book all my life, but I ve never done it carefully and cover to cover before I first tried it when I was too young to understand 18 or 19 a crack spined copy purchased at a now defunct occult shop on the South Side of Pittsburgh , then again in the summer of 2003, when I did understand a bit, than I wanted it put me off Nietzsche for a while the description of the beast of prey, performing murder, rape, and arson like a schoolboy playing a prank, sounded entir [...]


  15. One has got to be thankful they have everything unabridged on audiobook now I could never read him, because frankly his writing style is pompous, arrogant and on the whole insufferable He thinks he is terribly clever and he rubs your nose in it Well of course he is, but the style obscures what could have been a pleasant read When someone else is reading him though, one can sit through it I am glad I finally got around to him as the content was really wonderful and original Will definitely be ge [...]


  16. Oh Nietzsche You have such great insights, such valid points It s just such a shame that I have to struggle through so much blah to get to them.
