Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most influential thinkers of the past 150 years and On the Genealogy of Morality (1887) is his most important work on ethics and politics. A polemical contribution to moral and political theory, it offers a critique of moral values and traces the historical evolution of concepts such as guilt, conscience, responsibility, law and justice. This is a revised and updated 2006 edition of one of the most successful volumes to appear in Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought. Keith Ansell-Pearson modified his introduction to Nietzsche's classic text, and Carol Diethe incorporated a number of changes to the translation itself, reflecting the considerable advances in our understanding of Nietzsche. In this guise the Cambridge Texts edition of Nietzsche's Genealogy should continue to enjoy widespread adoption, at both undergraduate and graduate level.

Excerpt from Zur Genealogie der Moral: Eine Streitschrift Meine Gedanken uber die Herkunft unserer moralischen Vorurtheile denn um sie handelt es sich in dieser Streitschrift haben ihren ersten, sparsamen und irorläufigen Ausdruck in jener aphorismen-samm lung erhalten, die den Titel trägt "menschliches, Allzu menschliches. Ein Buch für freie Geister, und deren Niederschrift in Sorrent begonnen wurde, wahrend eines Winters, welcher es mir erlaubte, Halt zu machen wie ein Wandrer Halt macht und das weite und gefährliche Land zu überschauen, durch das mein Geist bis dahin gewandert war. Dies geschah im Winter 1876 - 77; die Gedanken selbst sind älter. Es waren in der Haupt sache schon die gleichen Gedanken, die ich in den vor liegenden Abhandlungen wieder aufnehme hoffen wir, dass die lange Zwischenzeit ihnen gut gethan hat, dass sie reifer, heller, stärker, vollkommner geworden sind! Dass ich aber heute noch an ihnen festhalte, dass sie sich selber inzwischen immer fester an einander gehalten haben, ja in einander gewachsen und verwach sen sind, das stärkt in mir die frohe Zuversichtlichkeit.

Max Weber zählt neben Karl Marx zu den weltbekannten Gelehrten im Bereich der Sozialwissenschaften. Dieser aus einer interdisziplinären Tagung anlässlich des 150. Geburtstags von Weber hervorgegangene Band folgt den Spuren seines Werkes und dessen Wirkung anhand von drei Hauptaspekten: Sein Verständnis von Politik stellte den nationalen Machtstaat sowie den Kampf um ideelle und materielle Interessen ins Zentrum. Webers Konzept von Theorie kreiste wesentlich um Begriffe wie (okzidentale) Rationalisierung und Bürokratisierung. Als Weggefährten werden, außer seiner wissenschaftlich tätigen Ehefrau Marianne und dem als Kultursoziologe hervorgetretenen Bruder Alfred, zwei unterschiedliche Zeitgenossen betrachtet: der Publizist und Politiker Friedrich Naumann und der mit Max Webers Sicht der Moderne wohl am ehesten vergleichbare Theologe Ernst Troeltsch. Weitere ausgewählte Vergleichsperspektiven zum facettenreichen Gesamtwerk runden den Band thematisch ab.
