This chapter examines Friedrich Nietzsche's metaphysics by addressing his justification of the will to power. It shows that the attribution of a metaphysics to Nietzsche is both textually and philosophically defensible because the will to power derives from Nietzsche's perspectivism. It discusses Nietzsche's argument that the will to power is a comprehensive perspective that unifies opposing points of view rather than reducing all explanation to one of them.

Keywords:   Friedrich Nietzsche, metaphysics, will to power, perspectivism, justification
