Product Description

Nietzsche is one of the most important and widely read philosophers of all time and his On the Genealogy of Morals is one of the most accessible and frequently studied of all his works---a key text in the study of moral philosophy. This is a hugely important and exciting, yet challenging, piece of philosophical writing.

In Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morals: A Reader's Guide, Daniel Conway explains the philosophical background against which the book was written, the wider context of Western morality in general and the key themes and topics inherent in the text. The book then guides the reader through the four sections of the text to a clear understanding of how they relate to each other and to the text as a whole, before exploring the reception and influence of this classic philosophical work. This is the ideal companion to study of this most influential and challenging of texts.

Endorsements

"Daniel Conway, one of the leading Nietzsche scholars of his generation, has written what may be the best extended commentary on The Geneaology of Morals. Students will not be the sole beneficiaries of Conway’s clearly written and insightful discussion...Highly recommended for anyone interested in what Nietzsche has to say about the origins and future of morality and the ascetic ideal." -Professor Michael Zimmerman, University of Colorado at Boulder

"This is a pedagogical tour de force---I admire the way Daniel Conway has written this introduction to Nietzsche’s classic text with the needs of students uppermost in mind. It should be the first place undergraduates go to as an aid to their study of the text." -Keith Ansell-Pearson, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick
