note on the titles of beyond good and evil

            Now we are ready to place Beyond Good and Evil.

            The book would be more accurately titled, Willing Interpretation. Every particle of this work is mere parable, somewhat direct deception, to seduce us of us who could be so seducted to be the new philosopher, the exacting philoligist, the fellow reader Nietzsche sought. No fact in this book matters at all, no racism or criticism matters in itself.

            This book is of the three central branches of Nietzsche’s work, growing from the soil of years of aphoristic books (human, all too human, the dawn the gay science) and sprouting into Beyond Good and Evil, or the will of interpretation, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, or the mythopoeticism of higher philosophy, and Geneology of Morals, which is an illustration of the interpretive art told in parable here. The final fruits include the antichrist, which grows from the branch of good and evil, ecce homo, which grows from Beyond Good and Evil, and Twilight of the Idols, which grows from Zarathustra.

            Let us therefore write alternative titles to the table of contents.

Beyond Good and Evil or Will Interpreting

On the Prejudices of Philosophers or differentiating text from interpretation

The Free Spirit or independence in interpreting

What Is Religious or the counterexample to the free spirit

Epigrams and Interludes or riddles of preparation

Natural History of Marlas

We Scholars

Our Virtues

Peoples And Fatherlands

What is Noble





Take care, Caretaker!

Your innermost is the sacred!
