Perhaps German pessimism still has one last step to take? Perhaps it has once again to set beside one another in fearful fashion its credo and its absurdum? And if this book is pessimistic even into the realm of morality, even to the point of going beyond faith in morality - should it not for this very reason be a German book?

Too often paired with Human, All Too Human, Daybreak has been too little appreciated as the real beginning of Nietzsche 's own path on the topic of morality. Human, All Too Human shadow of Schopenhauer's values; only in lies too much under the Daybreak does Nietzsche break free and begin to raise his characteristic questions about the value of the unegoistic and, ultimately, of morality. The means he found to do so, his naturalized Kantian interpretation of the morality of custom, did not in fact satisfy him for long (see GM II, 1-3 for his later account) , and it is worth trying to figure out why as one reads Daybreak.
