Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil takes an in-depth look at the major truths of philosophy. However, the unique approach of adding poetry and commentary to these truths makes this work both more interesting and more dynamic than the typical philosophic discussion found in most modern philosophy books. In addition, Nietzche argues that most philosophies are centered on the philosopher's attempt to explain their own bias.
The work offers insight to finding the truths not only about philosophy, but also about the philosophers who wrote these insights. The truths in this book, known as aphorisms, are linked together in a progressive way that allows the listener to slowly build a solid foundation of knowledge.
After criticizing past philosophers, Neitzche explains the concept of a free spirit that is not confined by rules and principles. These future free thinkers the author mentions will hopefully follow all trails of thought until each is fully explored. Currently, philosophers rule out certain truths and ideas very quickly because these new ideas do not always coincide with the philosophers' traditional views. Nietzche uses this argument to point out that most religions suffer this same limited way of thinking, and he urges the use of philosophy as a tool to be utilized to its full extent rather than limited by a person's own reservations and opinions.
