Event description

Description

Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, first published in 1886, is a landmark work of post-Enlightenment philosophy that has been profoundly influential on existential and postmodern writers of the twentieth century. The work dramatically rejects what it takes to be the tradition of Western culture and thought, unleashing a radical new philosophical sensibility in which neither truth nor morality are absolutes, and where good and evil are not opposites but counterparts stemming from the same elemental desires. Nietzsche then turns from his critique of philosophy to what he regards as an affirmative approach to life that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and demands that the individual imposes his own will to power upon the world.
