Nietzsche on Ethics and Politics

This chapter explores Nietzsche’s works during his early, middle, and final periods. Nietzsche began his philosophical career as a devotee of Schopenhauer’s two-world metaphysics, but he is better known for the criticism of metaphysics he began developing in the works of his middle or “positivistic” period. The works in his final period show significant changes in his analysis of two-world metaphysics. To begin with, he no longer claims that “there might be a metaphysical world,” evidently recognizing the problem with the metaphor that led him to this conclusion in Human, All Too Human.

Keywords:   two-world metaphysics, early period, positivistic period, final period
