Nietzsche on Epistemology and Metaphysics

Tsarina Doyle

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter focuses on Friedrich Nietzsche's mediated engagement with Immanuel Kant through Arthur Schopenhauer. It traces how both Nietzsche's early and late writings engaged with Kant's critical thought and pre-critical writings and examines Nietzsche's thesis that the empirical reality of powers can be secured only by demonstrating both the intrinsicality and relationality of powers. It suggests that Nietzsche believed that the fundamental constituents of reality are powers obtaining at the level of empirical reality rather than things-in-themselves.

Keywords:   Friedrich Nietzsche, Immanuel Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer, powers, critical thought, pre-critical writings
