The "good European" is a rich and important topic in Nietzsche. It is first related to Nietzsche's early reflections on European culture, and during the 1880's it gains philosophical value, being strictly connected with the purposes of Nietzsche's mature thought. The aim of this paper is to track the genesis and development of the notion of "good European", from Human, all too Human I to Nietzsche's writings from the years 1885-1887. That investigation shall particularly show the meaning and value that Nietzsche attributes to the good Europeans; as for him, they are in fact the leaders of the spiritual development that follows the overcoming of Christian morality.
