Abstract

Notes 1. The volume itself takes its name from a conference held at the University of Southampton in July 2008; it is hoped that it will be the first of three edited collections also named after eponymous conferences (the second and third of which have been provisionally titled Nietzsche and Traditions in Ethics and Nietzsche's Postmoralism). 2. Interestingly, historically minded scholars such as Christa Davis Acampora and strong naturalists such as Brian Leiter find some common ground on this point. Acampora urges us to deflate the importance of the sovereign individual passage in The Genealogy of Morals on the basis of textual evidence in the Nachlass, while Leiter argues that it is incompatible with Nietzsche's overtly naturalistic commitments. An informative overview of this literature is given by Matthew Rukgaber in "The `Sovereign Individual' and the `Ascetic Ideal': On a Perennial Misreading of the Second Essay of Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morality," Journal of Nietzsche Studies 43.2 (2012): 213­39. Thanks to Keith Ansell-Pearson for drawing my attention to this. 3.
