Beyond Good and Evil - Friedrich Nietzsche - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Beyond Good and Evil:

Friedrich's philosophy of morality and willpower.

My favorite Friedrich Nietzsche quote from the book:

"And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."

Questions to ponder while reading Friedrich Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil:

Do you create your life?

Is good more than a word?

My review of the book Beyond Good and Evil:

Nietzsche is, well, Nietzsche, but you have to know what he actually said because he is quoted all of the time.

Not the easiest read.

I disagree with much but I do think that we need to quit following the masses blindly.  Especially when they come quoting Nietzsche.
