Beyond Good and Evil, one of Nietzsche’s four «late period» works, is a philosophical treatise organized into nine parts and 296 short individual sections. In it he explores the concept of morality as taken for granted by contemporary philosophers, and whether «good» and «evil» should be considered just two sides of the same coin.

🔮Hidden Depths

He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.
Philo­soph­ers are ac­cus­tomed to speak of the will as though it were the best-known thing in the world; in­deed, Schopen­hauer has given us to un­der­stand that the will alone is really known to us, ab­so­lutely and com­pletely known, without de­duc­tion or ad­di­tion. But it again and again seems to me that in this case Schopen­hauer also only did what philo­soph­ers are in the habit of do­ing—he seems to have ad­op­ted a pop­u­lar pre­ju­dice and ex­ag­ger­ated it. Willing seems to me to be above all some­thing com­plic­ated, some­thing that is a unity only in name—and it is pre­cisely in a name that pop­u­lar pre­ju­dice lurks, which has got the mas­tery over the in­ad­equate pre­cau­tions of philo­soph­ers in all ages.
