Preface

Nietzsche begins by criticizing traditional philosophical approaches for lacking a "Historical sense," meaning they fail to account for the origins and development of moral concepts over time. He introduces the concept of genealogy as a method to trace the evolution of morals back to their beginnings. Nietzsche aims to challenge established moral values and their supposed objectivity, Suggesting they are rooted in subjective human experiences and power dynamics. This sets the stage for his critique of morality and exploration of its underlying motives and effects.
