Nietzsche referred to his critique of Judeo-Christian moral values as 'philosophizing with the hammer'. "On the Genealogy of Morals" (originally subtitled "A Polemic") is divided into three essays. The first is an investigation into the origins of our moral values, or as Nietzsche calls them 'moral prejudices'. The second essay addresses the concept of guilt and its role in the development of civilization and religion. The third essay considers suffering and its role in human existence. What might be of most value to today's reader is not necessarily Nietzsche's views on particular ethical issues, but rather his encouragement to think independently and to actualize the self.
