(p.370) 13 Conclusions
Nietzsche and Contemporary Ethics

Simon Robertson

Oxford University Press

The concluding chapter does three main things. First it recapitulates the book’s main interpretive claims and the progress made on our interpretive puzzles, summarizing how this work adds something new to our understanding of Nietzsche. Next it outlines various ways Nietzsche has something important to contribute, both critically and positively, to ongoing issues and debates in contemporary philosophical ethics. Finally, it suggests that his significance may be wider: although there are certainly overlaps between his concerns and those of many contemporary philosophers, Nietzsche also challenges our usual views of what ethics itself is—and what it, and we, should be doing.
