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."

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.

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!
