Abstract

It has been argued in this essay that the thesis proposed by George Morgan, Walter Kaufmann, and Arthur Danto is preferable to the popular view of Nietzshean morality. Contrary to the popular view Nietzsche, in the opinion of these interpreters, did not sanction lust, brutality, and cruelty and did not endorse maste morality. Instead they argue that Nietzsche held that life should consist of both reason and passion, balanced in such a way that neither order nor impulse is emphasized to the exclustion of the other.
