Though it was Thus Spake Zarathustra that claimed the spot of Nietzsche's favorite, it is The Genealogy of Morals that many scholars and critics call his greatest work. In it, Nietzsche constructs a framework from which to analyze the origins of our code of ethics, specifically as they relate to—or are inspired by—Judeo-Christian morality.
For the majority of his career, Nietzsche seemed especially interested in taking apart the dualistic mindset of his predecessors. The Genealogy of Morals is a masterstroke in a conversation he'd crafted over fifteen years in the making.
