This is a Reader's Guide to this classic 'anti-moral' text by an eminent Nietzsche academic. Nietzsche is one of the most important and widely read philosophers of all time and his "On the Genealogy of Morals" is one of the most accessible and frequently studied of all his works - a key text in the study of moral philosophy. This is a hugely important and exciting, yet challenging, piece of philosophical writing. In Nietzsche's "On the Genealogy of Morals: A Reader's Guide", Daniel Conway explains the philosophical background against which the book was written, the wider context of Western morality in general and the key themes and topics inherent in the text. The book then guides the reader through the four sections of the text to a clear understanding of how they relate to each other and to the text as a whole, before exploring the reception and influence of this classic philosophical work. This is the ideal companion to study of this most influential and challenging of texts.
