(p.viii) (p.1) Introduction
Nietzsche on Epistemology and Metaphysics

Tsarina Doyle

Edinburgh University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about Friedrich Nietzsche's view on epistemology and metaphysics. This volume explores the Kantian background to Nietzsche's reconciliation of self and world. This is examined in two parts and the book addresses both his perspectival epistemology and his metaphysics of the will to power. The first part examines Nietzsche's appropriation and modification of Immanuel Kant's epistemology and the second part investigates his view that reality is ordered intrinsically independently of human minds in his will to power thesis.

Keywords:   Friedrich Nietzsche, epistemology, metaphysics, will to power, Immanuel Kant, human mind, power thesis
