Purdue University Friedrich Nietzsche: Beyond Good and Evil essay

Must have the book “Beyond Good & Evil” By Friedrich Nietzsche in a specific edition required. I ask that you purchase the book in this exact translation. I am adding extra funds to the amount paid for the paper to cover the cost of the book which is priced at $13.00. ISBN 978-0-140-44923-5 — Here is a link for the book through amazon: However, local book stores should have the book so that you get the book asap. https://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Good-Evil-Penguin-Cl…

Make sure this is the ONLY version of the book that you use.

The essay topic is a philosophical paper: this will include your own ideas and thoughts but do not expand on your ideas too far. Stay focused on what Nietzsche has to say about the topic you are discussing. The bold writing below will be your essay prompt.

TOPIC: Nietzsche explicitly mentions a “drive to knowledge” in BGE and it seems clear that it constitutes one half of the “magnificent tension of the spirit” mentioned in the preface. But Nietzsche’s language often makes it seem that he denies that we can have any knowledge of the truth (despite having such a drive) and that it does not really matter if our beliefs are false. Using the text, present evidence that could be read as supporting this interpretation and then provide an argument to show why the obvious “surface” reading of the text is misleading, .i.e. show why Nietzsche is in fact not committed to “falsification”.

Neitzsche talks about falsification in part one of the book. It is very important to follow the prompt.

Writing rules: MLA formatting, use in line citations, if you are unsure what this is please use this link. https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/m..

The paper should be 8 pages long double spaced times new roman 12 point font.

Do not use any outside sources. Only answer the prompt above using your own ideas and the book.
