Intro to Philosophy Grade 12 Semester 1 Final Mr. Lee Underwood We study Frederick Nietzsche today because his philosophies have stood the test of time. His contributions to the way we perceive power, class, and status are provocative at the very least. He urges us to be honest with ourselves when considering how modern civilizations have emerged and grown into what we know of them today. Pretend you are a graphic designer for a famous book publishing house. Due to the resurgence in interest for the ethical philosophers, you have been chosen to design an updated book jacket that will envelope the newest edition of Frederick Nietzsche’s pivotal work, “Beyond Good and Evil”. Along with the book jacket, your editor has asked you write a sales pitch, a half page piece of persuasive writing, that will attract a new generation of readers to the book. To accomplish this, you must know the needs and wants of your current generation, how moral objectivism and moral non-objectivism play a role in their lives, as well as an explanation of why Nietzsche’s philosophies matter to them. Below you will find a rubric for your success on this project. Please read it carefully before beginning. The Book Jacket: 5 10 15 20 25 Represents a thorough understanding of the major concepts from “Beyond Good and Evil” and the concepts are arranged on the book jacket in creative ways.

The sales pitch will identify the ideal audience, why they need this book, and why Nietzsche’s philosophy matters in today’s world. Good Luck! Your project is due by the end of the testing period.
