Editorial Reviews

Review


"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

7 of 12 people found the following review helpful By R. Albin TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 5, 2009
Format: Paperback
An interesting collection of essays on the moral aspects of Nietzsche's philosophy. While aimed largely at a scholarly audience, several of these essays are readable by general readers. Essays by Hurka on Nietzsche's perfectionism, Clark and Dudrick on moral objectivity in Nietzsche, and Leiter on Nietzsche's pioneering moral psychology are particularly useful for general readers. Most of the remaining essays are mainly of scholarly interest, though written at a high level. There is little here that will change the overall impression of Nietzsche's power as a critic and the rather bizarre nature of his positive ideas.
