Description

Virtue Beyond Morality is unique in being a study of Nietzsche's ethics, that is both well-grounded in Nietzsche studies and draws on a broad knowledge of ethical theory, both historical and contemporary. The book makes Nietzsche's thought accessible to Anglo-American moral philosophers, and draws on historical and contemporary ethics in a way that illuminates Nietzsche's concerns.show more
