Central to Nietzsche’s perfectionism are two ideals: flourishing and excellence. This article offers an original account of what they each involve, including how they differ and connect, plus an axiological picture that makes sense of that. It also suggests that the underlying model of value which emerges––in effect, a model of a good life––is interesting and attractive in its own right, and that it may therefore have wider philosophical appeal.
