Beyond Good Evil Book Description:

Philosophy Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most remarkable and influential books of the nineteenth century. Like Thus Spoke Zarathustra, which had immediately preceded it, Beyond Good and Evil represents Nietzsche's attempt to sum up his philosophy—but in less flamboyant and more systematic form. The nine parts of the book are designed to give the reader a comprehensive idea of Nietzsche’s thought and style: they span "The Prejudices of Philosophers," "The Free Spirit," religion, morals, scholarship, "Our Virtues," "Peoples and Fatherlands," and "What is Noble," as well as chapter of epigrams and a concluding poem. This translation by Walter Kaufmann—the first ever to be made in English by a philosopher—has become the standard one, for accuracy and fidelity to the eccentricities and grace of style of the original. Unlike other editions, in English or German, this volume offers an inclusive index of subjects and persons referred to in the book. Professor Kaufmann, the distinguished Nietzsche scholar, has also provided a running footnote commentary on the text.

Beyond Good and Evil Book Description:

A deluxe, high-quality edition of Friedrich Nietzsche’s seminal work Beyond Good and Evil is one of the final books by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. This landmark work continues to be one of the most well-known and influential explorations of moral and ethical philosophy ever conceived. Expanding on the concepts from his previous work Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Nietzsche adopts a polemic approach to past philosophers who, in his view, lacked critical sense in accepting flawed premises in their consideration of morality. The metaphysics of morality, Nietzsche argues, should not assume that a good man is simply the opposite of an evil man, rather merely different expression of humanity’s common basic impulses. Controversial in its time, as well as hotly debated in the present, Nietzsche’s work moves beyond conventional ethics to suggest that a universal morality for all human beings in non-existent – perception, reason and experience are not static, but change according to an individual’s perspective and interpretation. The work further argues that philosophic traditions such as “truth,” “self-consciousness” and “free will” are merely inventions of Western morality and that the “will to power” is the real driving force of all human behaviour. This volume: Critiques the belief that actions, including domination or injury to the weak, can be universally objectionable Explores themes of religion and “master and slave” morality Includes a collection of stunning aphorisms and observations of the human condition Part of the bestselling Capstone Classics Series edited by Tom Butler-Bowdon,this collectible, hard-back edition of Beyond Good and Evil provides an accessible and insightful Introduction by leading Nietzsche authority Dr Christopher Janaway. This deluxe volume is perfect for anyone with interest in philosophy, psychology, science, history and literature.

Wagner Beyond Good and Evil Book Description:

John Deathridge presents a different and critical view of Richard Wagner based on recent research that does not shy away from some unpalatable truths about this most controversial of composers in the canon of Western music. Deathridge writes authoritatively on what Wagner did, said, and wrote, drawing from abundant material already well known but also from less familiar sources, including hitherto seldom discussed letters and diaries and previously unpublished musical sketches. At the same time, Deathridge suggests that a true estimation of Wagner does not lie in an all too easy condemnation of his many provocative actions and ideas. Rather, it is to be found in the questions about the modern world and our place in it posed by the best of his stage works, among them Tristan und Isolde and Der Ring des Nibelungen. Controversy about Wagner is unlikely to go away, but rather than taking the line of least resistance by regarding him blandly as a "classic" in the Western art tradition, Deathridge suggests that we need to confront the debates that have raged about him and reach beyond them, toward a fresh and engaging assessment of what he ultimately achieved.

Shakespeare Book Description:

All of Shakespeare's plays reveal an interesting view of morality. I will focus on three works. In Richard III, Othello, and King Lear Shakespeare presents us with sympathetic villains. Richard, Iago, and Edmund, all the contemporary anti-heroes that most contemporary Elizabethans and Jacobeans would have hissed at, are full of life-- they are tools Shakespeare uses in order to explore his view of morality. The fact that there seems to be latent sympathy for the three master-villains of the Elizabethan stage is one that has been noticed by critics. Richard III charms the audience at the beginning of the play with a memorable soliloquy. Iago is thought, in more than one instance, to overshadow Othello. Even Edmund, despite his position in the subplot, is given important and majestic lines. The underlying sympathy for the anti-heroes suggests an unorthodox approach towards drama. The very fact that the villains have flashes of emotions, human weaknesses and valid justifications leads to ambivalence on the part of the audience. This ambivalence demands that the critic probe into the reasons for Shakespeare's sympathetic portrayal of the "villain." Equipped with distinct motives and human emotions, facing gross injustice^ these characters become no different than the "heroes1' they endeavor to defeat. By pointing out just how fine the line between "hero" and "villain" is, Shakespeare puts the entire conventional moral formula into question. Therefore, in an amoral world vision, Richard, Iago and Edmund emerge as the true tragic heroes of their respective plays.

Mr Robot and Philosophy Book Description:

Mr. Robot has been hailed, not only as one of the most haunting and unnerving dramas ever to appear on television, but also as the first accurate popular presentation of how computer hacking and cyberterrorism actually work. Mr. Robot and Philosophy is aimed at thoughtful fans of this addictive show who will welcome the opportunity to explore Elliot Alderson's world from a philosophical perspective. The developing story of Mr. Robot constantly raises ethical and metaphysical issues. What happens to our personal identity when it’s extended into cyberspace and an array of electronic devices? Are we in control of our online lives or are we being controlled? What does our right to privacy mean in a world where millions of people can observe what we’re doing and saying? Is a virtual currency true money and could it replace traditional money? Can there be healthy forms of drug addiction? Can some types of so-called mental illness be useful and beneficial? Does it make any sense to unleash destruction upon the existing corporate economic structures, and can we expect something better to emerge from the ruins of a digital meltdown?

Beyond Good and Evil Book Description:

In this volume, writers and scholars from the region examine subjects ranging from the Japanese 'evil' of the Second World War to the appropriation of indigenous cultures and the ethics of biographical writing. Although diverse, the essays share an interest in the conflicts between relativism and fundamentalism, between uncertainty and sureness, that are so much with us in this fast developing region of the world.
