  1. Comments on Nietzsche’s Constructivism by Justin Remhof. [REVIEW]Neil Sinhababu - 2021 - Philosophia 49 (2):565-570.

In this paper, I examine Nietzsche’s views about how value is created. For Nietzsche, value is created through valuing, and in section ‘Valuing’, I provide a Nietzschean account of valuing. Specifically, I argue that those who share Nietzsche’s view that there are no objective values can value things by representing them to have relative (...)
