Nietzsche is one of the most important and controversial thinkers in the history of philosophy. His writings on moral philosophy are amongst the most widely read works, both by philosophers and non-philosophers. Many of the ideas raised are both startling and disturbing, and have been the source of great contention.

On the Genealogy of Morality is Nietzsche's most sustained and important contribution to moral philosophy, featuring many of the ideas for which he is best known, including the slave revolt in morals; will to power; genealogy; and perspectivism.

The Routledge Philosophy GuideBook to Nietzsche on Morality introduces the reader to these and other important Nietzschean themes patiently and clearly. It is the first book to examine the work in such a way, and will be a vital point of reference for any Nietzsche scholar, and essential reading for students coming to Nietzsche for the first time.

Review quote

'The most important full length study to date of Nietzsche's primary text on the subject. The books sets the standard by which future treatments of this subject matter will be measured and I expect it to be a primary point of reference for discussions of Nietzsche and ethics for some time.' - Peter Poellner, University of Warwick; 'Leiter's book is both a major contribution to Nietzsche studies and a very helpful guide for students to Nietzsche's Genealogy of Morality'-Maudemarie Clark, Colgate University, USA
