Summary
First published in 1886 at Nietzsche's own expense, the book was not initially considered important. In it, Nietzsche denounced what he considered to be the moral vacuity of 19th century thinkers. He attacked philosophers for what he considered to be their lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their considerations of morality and values. Beyond Good and Evil is a comprehensive overview of Nietzsche's mature philosophy.

I imagine letting a narrator who is borderline illiterate, read a book of such importance, in itself, containing its own difficulties of comprehension, that of which of any reader in this era must first overcome, in spite of an obvious alluring tone of voice, is not just confusing, but damaging to anyone genuinely attempting to comprehend meaning in the piece, and counterproductive to anyone attempting to commit the time needed just to brave the length of the excursion itself.

he made 1 or 2 semi convincing points, but I found him to be horribly sexist as well as racist. the narrator changed multiple time throughout the reading.

This narrator is cheesy and terrible. He can hardly read the words himself.

Chauvinism, classism, and racism abound in these “words of wisdom” from the turn of the 20th century. It gets worse as you near the end. Difficult to finish because of it. I would expect more from a philosopher from this era. The recording quality was not the best with some of the narrators.

It's great. Now some of his thoughts are backwards but it's so long ago. You can see in his writing many things people believe and think today. The narration was spotty. One read way too fast. Another had too thick of an accent. But all in all very worthy the time.

A few of the narrators had poor audio quality.
