In 11 new essays, top philosophers target either to strengthen philosophical realizing of Nietzsche's moral views-his normative and meta-ethics, his ethical psychology, his perspectives on unfastened will and the character of the self-and to make Nietzsche a reside player in modern debates in ethics and cognate fields.

He mentions two such properties, one internal to a goal and the other a matter of its relation to other goals. The ﬁrst property is the goal’s extent, both in time and in the number of objects or persons it involves. This property naturally connects with ideas about power, since someone who achieves a more extended goal transforms more of the world and so exercises greater power over it. Nietzsche is especially interested in a goal’s extent in time. In The Genealogy of Morals he sees the chief value of promising as its expressing a ‘protracted and unbreakable will,’ one through which a person ﬁxes his future behaviour and so makes himself more valuable than ‘all more short-willed and unreliable creatures’ (GM II: 2).
I see nothing in Nietzsche’s talk of unity that restricts it to this speciﬁcally narrative form. At the same time, the analogy with literary characters is in another respect too permissive. ³⁹ For further remarks about the unity of goals see Z I: 22; BGE: 19, 208; GM, Preface: 2; WP: 334, 387. ⁴⁰ See also Z II: 20; BGE: 205; GM III: 23; A: 57; WP: 390, 881. ⁴¹ MacIntyre, After Virtue, ch. 15; Nehamas, Nietzsche, ch. 6.

Kaufmann (1974: 213–16). ⁴ Richardson (1996), esp. pp. 28–35. ). ), develop different versions of this metaethical view and its implications for Nietzsche’s substantive ethical proposals. See also Larmore (1996: ch. 4). 34 / Bernard Reginster A third and ﬁnal strategy proposes to meet this interpretative challenge by developing an account of Nietzsche’s new values that does not depend on the concept of will to power at all. Although this strategy is given various ofﬁcial justiﬁcations (the concept of will to power is too vague to be the foundation of a substantive ethics; it does not play an essential role in Nietzsche’s ethical thought anyway; it is a parody of traditional forms of ethical naturalism, not intended to be taken seriously; it is merely rhetorical bombast designed to scare away the weak-minded; and so on), it remains often unofﬁcially motivated by the concern to avoid the embarrassment I described earlier.
