Beyond Good and Evil demonstrates that the world is steeped
in false piety and infected with a 'slave morality'. With wit and
subversive energy, Nietzsche demands that the individual impose
their own 'will to power' upon the world.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) published, among other titles, Human, All Too Human and The Dawn. He divorced himself from public life and, in 1889, became insane, remaining in a condition of mental and physical paralysis until his death. R. J. Hollingdale translated eleven of Nietzsche's books and published two books about him. Michael Tanner is a Fellow of Corpus Christi College.
