Although there is a vast amount of literature on Nietzsche’s philosophy, this is the first study in English that focuses on his ontology. Addis argues that, contrary to what many commentators think, Nietzsche defends both the possibility and the desirability of objectivity in the search for knowledge, including knowledge of the basic features of reality, that is, of ontology. Addis sets out, analyzes, and evaluates the five essential components of Nietzsche’s ontology: constant change, substances and things, minds, causation, and will to power. In each case, Addis contributes an original understanding of the feature under discussion, with more detail than exists in other treatments, and defends with quotes from relevant texts of Nietzsche.
