Review

"An engaging, bold, and insightful book that should stand above much recent Nietzsche scholarship for its attention to Nietzsche's purposes and its care with Nietzsche's text." Paul Kirkland, Review of Metaphysics"

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Thomas on August 25, 2010
Format: Paperback
Since I was reading Beyond Good and Evil on my own, I ordered both Lampert's commentary and Douglas Burnham's Reading Nietzsche: An Analysis of Beyond Good and Evil They are both very well written. From Lampert I learned the importance of Darwinian theories for Nietzsche (which led me to Richardson's book Nietzsche's New Darwinism ). I found Burnham's notes on Nietzsche's eugenics in the text very helpful (although this is not a very palatable part of Nietzsche's thought), and that this aspect is not really dealt with clearly by Lampert. Both commentaries are great, but if I had to buy just one, maybe I would choose Burnham's.

By Tom Merrill on July 4, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Professor Lampert's book about Beyond Good and Evil (BGE) is a great starting point for supplementing Nietzsche's text. It's an affirmative philosophy for those of us that believe we are a part of this world and not pinning our hopes on a 'transcendental' heaven after we endure our time on earth as a 'sinful' creature. Amor Fati!
