Abstract

In Living with Nietzsche, Robert C. Solomon defends the view that Nietzsche is an existentialist avant la lettre, a view that I defend. I concur with Ariela Tubert that her case that Nietzsche is a skeptic about metaphysical freedom supports Solomon’s position, even if he did not necessarily see Nietzsche as holding a skeptical view. I counter Ivan Soll’s arguments against Solomon’s view that Nietzsche was mainly interested in promoting the life of passion, which Soll takes as insufficiently appreciative of the importance of will to power in Nietzsche’s thought. I argue that Solomon’s construal of will to power is defensible and not really so distant from Soll’s own stated interpretation.
