WE are unknown, we knowers, ourselves to ourselves: this has its own good reason. We have never searched for ourselves-how should it then come to pass, that we should ever find ourselves? Rightly has it been said: "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Our treasure is there, where stand the hives of our knowledge. It is to those hives that we are always striving; as born creatures of flight, and as the honey-gatherers of the spirit, we care really in our hearts only for one thing-to bring something "home to the hive " As far as the rest of life with its so-called "experiences" is concerned, which of us has even sufficient serious interest? or sufficient time? In our dealings with such points of life, we are, I fear, never properly to the point; to be precise, our heart is not there, and certainly not our ear. Rather like one who, delighting in a divine distraction, or sunken in the seas of his own soul, in whose ear the clock has just thundered with all its force its twelve strokes of noon, suddenly wakes up, and asks himself, "What has in point of fact just struck?" so do we at times rub after-wards, as it were, our puzzled ears, and ask in complete astonishment and complete embarrassment, "Through what have we in point of fact just lived?" further, "Who are we in point of fact?" and count, after they have struck, as I have explained, all the twelve throbbing beats of the clock of our experience, of our life, of our being-ah -and count wrong in the endeavour. Of necessity we remain strangers to ourselves, we understand ourselves not, in ourselves we are bound to be mistaken, for of us holds good to all eternity the motto, "Each one is the farthest away from himself"-as far as ourselves are concerned we are not "knowers."

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Written in response to a book on the origins of morality by his erstwhile friend Paul Ree, the three essays comprising "The Genealogy of Morals" all three advancing the critique of Christian morality set forth in "Beyond Good and Evil" are among Nietzsche's most sustained and cohesive work.
In the first essay starting from a linguistic analysis of words such as "good," "bad," and "evil" Nietzsche sets up a contrast between what he calls "master" morality and "slave" morality and shows how strength and action have often been replaced by passivity and nihilism. The next essay, looking into the origins of guilt and punishment, shows how the concept of justice was born and how internalization of this concept led to the development of what people called "the soul." In the third essay, Nietzsche dissects the meaning of ascetic ideals.
It is not Nietzsche's intention to reject ascetic ideals, "slave" morality, or internalized values out of hand; his main concern is to show that culture and morality, rather than being eternal verities, are human-made. Whether or not you agree with all of his conclusions, his writing is of such clarity and brilliance that you will find reading "The Genealogy of Morals" nothing short of exhilarating."

Notă biografică

German philosopher and philologist, Friedrich Nietzsche, was one of the most influential thinkers of our time. His works include critical texts on philosophy, science, cultural norms, religion and morality. His aim was the "truth" as he saw it, no matter how unpalatable, penned in a style characterised by metaphor and aphorism.
