? Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil.
Beyond Good and Evil is a collection of essays and aphorisms in which Friedrich Nietzsche expresses his desire for a “transvaluation of all values.” He contends that no human values are absolute; that all value distinctions (such as that between ‘good’ and ‘evil’) are artificial, the result of mere traditional prejudices; and that humanity should discard its old, outmoded values (such as ‘good’ and ‘evil’).
