Resumo

Em Nietzsche on Morality (2002), o autor propôs uma leitura sistemática de Nietzsche como um filósofo naturalista, o que atraiu comentários críticos consideráveis, inclusive por parte daqueles que tendem a ser simpáticos a tal leitura. Neste artigo, o autor retoma esta leitura e responde a variadas objeções. Os tópicos abordados incluem o papel da “especulação” no naturalismo de Nietzsche; a diferença entre os “Nietzsches” humeano e terapêutico; o papel da cultura nas explicações causais; o estatuto das alegações sobre a causação no naturalismo de Nietzsche; se a aparente metafísica da vontade de potência é compatível com o naturalismo; e como o naturalismo especulativo de Nietzsche se sai à luz dos subsequentes trabalhos em psicologia empírica.
