This exegetically focused chapter outlines the perfectionism I attribute to Nietzsche. It suggests that he is a value-pluralist rather than (power-based) value-monist. It then raises doubts about certain political and ethical readings (though gives a developmental story about his changing ambitions), and instead attributes to him an individualist perfectionism focused on the highest forms of human flourishing and excellence (with strong quasi-aesthetic and anti-theoretic leanings). This gives part of the resolution to the Scope Problem. The chapter then considers how immoral the resulting perfectionism is and examines how it might be justified.
