Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future

HERE, in spite of its name, is one of the most
serious, profound, and original philosophical works.
It offers a feast of good things to the morally and
intellectually fastidious, which will take long to
exhaust. There is really something new in the
book—much that is new! Burke says, in his
“Reflections on the Revolution in France ”(p. 128),
“We [Englishmen] know that we have made no discoveries, and we think that no discoveries are to
be made in morality.”The latter statement, which
still represents the general views of Englishmen, is
now proved to be entirely mistaken. Discoveries
have now been made in the realm of morals, which
are perhaps even more practically important than
all the discoveries in physical science ; and it is to
Nietzsche especially that we are indebted for those
discoveries, which are set forth, in part at least, in
this volume—he very discoveries, in fact, which
Burke himself required, in order to give a satisfactory
answer to the French Revolutionists.

As, however, many who might otherwise appreciate
the book, may stumble over its name
at the threshold, it should perhaps be explained
that the astounding and portentous designation,
“Beyond Good and Evil,”applies to it properly
only from the false point of view of its pseudo moral
opponents ; as, however, it is a very striking
expression, such as is always wanted for the title of
a book, it has been appropriated for the purpose,
notwithstanding the fact that to ordinary minds,
and in ordinary language, it implies the very reverse
of what the book teaches. Of course, there is a
certain amount of truth in the designation, and
therefore a justification for it: Nietzsche’ position
is beyond the spurious “good ”and the spurious
“evil ”of the prevalent slave-morality, which
deteriorates humanity; but he takes a firm stand
on the genuine “good ”and the genuine “bad ”or
master-morality, which promotes the advancement
of the human race.
