Abstract

Abstract:

Nietzsche's 1886 prefaces, in which he reorients his earlier work toward his future project of the revaluation of values, are pervaded by the theme of health, and more specifically, Nietzsche's own health. In On the Genealogy of Morals, health is not a topic in its own right, but it recedes into the background as an evaluative criterion by which to judge Christian morality. In this article, I use Nietzsche's discussion of health in the 1886 prefaces to shed light on the role of health in his project of revaluation. Specifically, I will claim that in attending to health, Nietzsche experiments with an evaluation that twists free of a faith in opposite values.
