Taking seriously the use that Nietzsche makes of human types, Ridley arranges his book thematically around the six characters who loom largest in that work the slave, the priest, the philosopher, the artist, the scientist, and the noble. By elucidating what the Genealogy says about these figures, he achieves a persuasive new assessment of Nietzsches ethics.Ridleys intellectually supple interpretation reveals Nietzsches ethical position to be deeper and more interesting than is often supposed: the relation, for instance, between Nietzsches ideal of the noble and the ascetic or priestly conscience does not emerge as a stark opposition but as a rich interplay between the tensions inherent in each.

Equally, he shows that certain under-appreciated confusions in Nietzsches thought reveal much about the positive aspects of the philosophers moral vision.The only book devoted entirely to the Genealogy, Nietzsches Conscience offers a sympathetic but tough-minded critical reading of the philosophers most important work. Delivered in clear and vigorous language and employing a broadly analytical approach, Ridleys commentary makes Nietzsches reflections on morality more accessible than they have been hitherto.
