Nietzsche's fundamental concern throughout his life was to plot the relationship between suffering and culture, or cultures. ‘Morality and its Discontents’ shows that correlative with this preoccupation with how one regards suffering is Nietzsche's interest in greatness rather than goodness. All Nietzsche's later works will be devoted to exploring the profound difference between greatness and goodness. Extracts from his books Daybreak, The Gay Science, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, and Beyond Good and Evil are provided. In Daybreak Nietzsche presents his first, by no means tentative, analyses of the mechanisms of morality, and of the kind of authority it invokes.
