  • Nietzsche's Views On Beyond Good And Evil

    After comprehensively examining one of the writings of well-known German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, titled, “Beyond Good and Evil,” I was able to perceive several elements that characterize his work to be knowledgeable, thought-provoking, and obscure. Although difficult to decipher because of his abundance of knowledge, it became evident through his reading that he detested ideas of nationalism; relatively alike, the indication of commonwealth principles, too. Despite the fact that nationalist activities were flourishing in this era, and commonwealth doctrines were supplicating to be practiced, Nietzsche unequivocally expresses his views in a way that shines light and institutes the viewpoints of nation-states and commonwealths to be frowned upon.

  • Nietzsche's Beyond Good And Evil

    In chapter four of Nietzsche’s book Beyond Good and Evil (Epigrams and Interludes), Nietzsche focuses on many themes and the chapter is broken down into many one liners that all focus on the philosophical thought of an individual rather than pertaining to many people.

  • Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good And Evil

    During the reading of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil, I was often shocked by how misogynistic Nietzsche appeared. His declarations and defamations of women caused a great amount of discomfort while reading as I am a strong feminist and Nietzsche was apparently my nemesis. Throughout Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche offers several witty aphorisms pertaining to women such as “compare man and woman on the whole, one may say: woman would not have the genius for finery if she did not have…

In this, genealogy’s positive aspect emerges, as we can appreciate how Nietzsche’s work is driven by the desire of presenting these men of knowledge with their lack of self-awareness, as well as with the tool to overcome it. In this respect, my understanding is that the “beehives of our knowledge” are an image and…
