Abstract and Keywords

This article examines Nietzsche’s influence on analytic philosophy, focusing on the field of analytic ethics. It presents some key rationales motivating his re-evaluation of (ethical) values and, in particular, his critique of modern morality. To demonstrate his influence on the work of Charles Taylor, Alasdair Macintyre, and Bernard Williams, the role of Nietzsche’s genealogical method in his re-evaluative project is considered. This is followed by a discussion of Nietzsche’s critique of the value of moral values and its relation to similar objections developed by more recent morality critics.

Keywords: analytic ethics, ethical values, morality, Charles Taylor, Alasdair Macintyre, Bernard Williams, genealogical method, Friedrich Nietzsche
