This paper discusses how in 'Beyond Good and Evil', Friedrich Nietzsche examined the prevailing concept of the individual, which he believed had been derived primarily from the moral teachings of Western philosophy and the prevailing ethics of Christianity. In philosophical terms, Nietzsche was determined to encourage individuals to define themselves and find their own place in the world by using conscience and reason to formulate their own self-guiding principles and chart their own individual journeys through life. According to Nietzsche, when society and all its subsidiaries have been alleviated, all that's left behind is repellent, brazen logic.
