Book Description

Brian Leiter, in his book Moral Psychology with Nietzsche (PDF), defends a number of controversial ideas that Nietzsche proposed, including the following: there is no such thing as objectively correct morality; no one is ever morally responsible; there is no such thing as free will; and our conscious thoughts and reasoning do not play a significant role in determining how our lives progress. Nietzsche’s anti-realism about the value (including epistemic value), Leiter’s account of moral judgment and its association to the emotions, Nietzsche’s skepticism about free will and moral responsibility, Leiter’s conception of the will and agency, Nietzsche’s epiphenomenalism about particular kinds of conscious mental states, and his views about the heritability of psychological traits are all interpreted in a new light by Leiter in this book. Leiter integrates the ideas of philosophers such as Harry Frankfurt, Gary Watson, and T. M. Scanlon, as well as the views of psychologists such as Daniel Wegner, Stanley Milgram, and Benjamin Libet, by mixing exegesis with the argument. Nietzsche emerges not simply as a museum piece from the history of ideas, but rather as a psychologist and philosopher who surpasses David Hume for insight into human nature and the human mind; anticipates later developments in empirical psychology time and time again; and continues to provide sophisticated and unsettling challenges to much conventional wisdom in the fields of psychology and philosophy.
