Description

In this book, David Owen offers a reflective and insightful analysis of Nietzsche's text

In this book, David Owen offers a reflective and insightful analysis of Nietzsche's text. Owen argues that there is a specific development of Nietzsche's work from his earlier "Daybreak" (1881) and that in "Genealogy of Morality", Nietzsche is developing a critique of modes of agency and that this constitutes the most fundamental aspect of his demand for a revaluation of values. The book is a distinctive and significant contribution to our understanding of Nietzsche's great text.

On the Genealogy of Morality: A Polemic (German: Zur Genealogie der Moral: Eine Streitschrift) is an 1887 book by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche

On the Genealogy of Morality: A Polemic (German: Zur Genealogie der Moral: Eine Streitschrift) is an 1887 book by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It consists of a preface and three interrelated treatises ('Abhandlungen' in German) that expand and follow through on concepts Nietzsche sketched out in Beyond Good and Evil (1886). The three treatises trace episodes in the evolution of moral concepts with a view to confronting "moral prejudices", specifically those of Christianity and Judaism.

On the Genealogy of Morality

On the Genealogy of Morality. Cambridge texts in the. History of political thought. When I rst heard about a book by Nietzsche called Zur Genealogie der Moral, I assumed the translation would be On the Genealogy of Morality, since for me, die Moral meant ethics as a formal doctrine, in other words, morality in a grand and abstract sense which naturally comprised morals. I am more relaxed on the matter now, but still feel that to talk about morality as a singular entity and phenomenon is truer to Nietzsche’s meaning.

Combining philosophical acuity, psychological insight, and a remarkably powerful prose style, Nietzsche's Genealogy of Morality remains an incisive attack on European morality. David Owen provides a detailed analysis of the Genealogy, situating it in the context of the development of Nietzsche's philosophy as a whole, as well as providing a lucid account of Nietzsche's reasons for adopting a genealogical investigation of moral values. Highlighting the key features of Nietzsche's critique of morality and his call for a re-evaluation of values, Owen shows how the arguments and rhetoric of the Genealogy combine to undermine our modern understanding of moral agency.
