    Abstract

    Book synopsis: The essays in this anthology are versions of papers originally presented at the ‘Friedrich Nietzsche and Ethics’ Conference conveyed by the Nietzsche Society in 2004 at the University of Sussex, Brighton, UK. Contributors are respected Nietzsche scholars from around the globe and their essays cover the full range of Nietzsche’s moral thinking. They include papers on evolution and development, eudaemonia, art and morality, agon and transvaluation, will to power, as well as free will and genuine selfhood, immoralism, equality, sexual ethics, and the value of pity and compassion. These topics reflect the continuing and ever increasing interest in and relevance of Nietzsche’s moral thinking and confirm Nietzsche’s status as a moral philosopher of great importance.
