Abstract

This article reflects upon the dual and complex character of Nietzsche’s interpretation of metaphysics. It is argued that the philosopher’s criticisms are not directed at metaphysics as such, but rather at its anachronistic and continued presence in the values and institutions of the modern world. The dichotomy between the world of sense experience and a transcendent and superior realm, though of unquestionable value at a certain point in human history, came to be, in the modern era, a fearsome obstacle to the expression of man’s will to power, and, hence, to his very survival.
