Description

Nietzsche was surprisingly neglected by most English-language moral philosophers until recently. This volume capitalizes on a growth of interest in Nietzsche's work on morality from two sides - from scholars of the history of philosophy and from contributors to current debates on ethical theory. In eleven new essays, leading philosophers aim both to advance philosophical understanding of Nietzsche's ethical views - his normative and meta-ethics, his moral psychology,
his views on free will and the nature of the self - and to make Nietzsche a live participant in contemporary debates in ethics and cognate fields.

Review quote

...this book will be illuminating not only for those interested in Nietzsche, but also for anyone with an interest in moral philosophy...This volume constitutes a significant advance in the Nietzsche literature. It is among a handful of volumes that anyone with a serious interest in Nietzsche simply must read. It will also be rewarding for anyone who is interested in the way in which moral psychology and action theory bear on ethics. * Paul Katsafanas MIND * Nietzsche has a tendency to throw out themes and leave us the task of seeing how they cohere. Many of the essays in this book try tie up apparent loose ends, and make him say what he should have said if he had followed his insights through. We are entering a new era of Nietzsche studies. * Roger Caldwell Philosophy Now * This collection of essays contains some of the best recent work on Nietzsche and moral philosophy. The editors state that their aim is to present work that advances the understanding of Nietzsche's ethical views and demonstrates the relevance of those views to contemporary debates in normative ethics, metaethics, and moral psychology. In relation to these two ends, the collection is clearly a success. It presents very good historical scholarship as well as some
first-rate work in moral philosophy that engages with the issues that concerned Nietzsche...The collection will certainly be of interest to moral philosophers and to those interested in the history of modern philosophy, and many of the essays should be regarded as essential reading for anyone interested
in Nietzsche's engagement with morality. * Scott Jenkins, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
