Editorial Reviews


...offers one of the most comprehensive and compelling interpretations of Nietzsche's critique of morality to date. With its distinctive emphasis on naturalistic themes, it forms a very significant contribution to the study of Nietzsche, and is poised to become a work of reference in the field.
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

...the most important full length study to date of Nietzsche's primary text on the subject...[T]he book sets the standard by which future treatments of this subject matter will be measured and I would expect it to be a primary point of reference for discussions of Nietzsche and ethics for quite some time.
–Peter Poellner, University of Warwick

Leiter's book is both a major contribution to Nietzsche studies and a very helpful guide for students to Nietzsche's Genealogy of Morality.
–Maudemarie Clark, Colgate University

The book is clear, crisply written, and engaging. It operates on a level wholly appropriate to its main intended readership, given that [Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morality] itself is not the stuff of introductory undergraduate courses.
...the book does something novel and important, in seeking to expound Nietzsche's thinking specifically on morality to an undergraduate audience; while offering a highly stimulating reading of that thinking itself.
–Robert Hopkins, University of Sheffield

Leiter maintains a steady focus on important philosophical issues and ignores the trivia and nonphilosophical history of ideas to which so much of the secondary literature on Nietzsche is devoted. This is one of the clearest and best accounts of Nietzsche's moral philosophy and is a rare example of a book of considerable scholarly and philosophical merit that is accessible to a wide audience. Leiter's commentary on the Genealogy is very well done and can be recommended to both students and scholars. Leiter brings much needed rigor and clarity to Nietzsche studies. This is a very good book, and I highly recommend it to a wide audience.
–Tom Carson, Moral Philosopher at Loyola/Chicago
