    Samoans Have a Word for “Will”—Loto—but Anthropologists Have Not Always Translated It Thusly, Which Puzzled Me When I First Began Doing Ethnography in American Sāmoa in the 1980s. I Was Taking a Language Class Kindly Offered to Stateside Teachers by a High-Ranking Member of the Government. He Decided to Teach Us a Love Song, Chanting the Language Into Our Heads.

  4. Nietzsche's Will to Power as Naturalist Critical Ontology.Donovan Miyasaki - 2013 - History of Philosophy Quarterly 30 (3):251-69.
    In this paper, I argue that Nietzsche’s published works contain a substantial, although implicit, argument for the will to power as ontology—a critical and descriptive, rather than positive and explanatory, theory of reality. Further, I suggest this ontology is entirely consistent with a naturalist methodology. The will to power ontology follows directly from Nietzsche’s naturalist rejection of three metaphysical presuppositions: substance, efficient causality, and final causality. I show that a number of interpretations, including those of Clark, (...)

    The Secret of Life: Explorations of Nietzsche's Conception of Life as Will to Power.William McNeill - 2013 - Research in Phenomenology 43 (2):177-192.
    The essay presents a series of explorations of Nietzsche’s conception of life as will to power, relying extensively on fragments from Nietzsche’s later notebooks, but also commenting on key selections from Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, and On the Genealogy of Morality. I argue that Nietzsche understands himself to be engaged in a unique kind of phenomenology of the body, and that will to power, as the primal force of life, should be understood not (...)

    Will to Power.Joseph Tham - 2012 - The New Bioethics 18 (2):115-132.
    This paper analyzes the underlying tendencies and attitudes toward reproductive medicine borrowing the Nietzschean concepts of nihilism: “death of God” with secularization; “will to power” with reproductive liberty and technological power; and the race of “supermen” with transhumanism. Medical science has advanced in leaps and bounds. In some way, technical innovations have given us unprecedented power to manipulate the way we reproduce. The indiscriminant use of medical technology is backed by a warped notion of human freedom. (...)

    Olympism, The Values Of Sport, and the Will to Power: De Coubertin And Nietzsche Meet Eugenio Monti.Léa Cléret & Mike McNamee - 2012 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 6 (2):183-194.
    The ?values of sport? is a concept that is often used to justify actions and policies by a range of agents and agencies from coaches and teachers to governing bodies and educational institutions. From a philosophical point of view, these values deserve to be analysed with great care to make sure we understand their nature and reach. The aim of this paper is to critically examine the values carried by the educational conception of sport that Pierre de Coubertin developed and (...)

    The Thousand Goals and the One Goal: Morality and Will to Power in Nietzsche's Zarathustra.J. Keeping - 2012 - European Journal of Philosophy 20 (S1):e73-e85.
    Nietzsche's critical stance toward morality appears to support some version of moral relativism. Yet he praises some actions and attributes while condemning others. Are these evaluations expressions of his moral prejudices, or is there a basis for them in his thought? Through a close reading of key passages from ThusSpokeZarathustra, I attempt to demonstrate that morality for Nietzsche is the historically situated working-out of will to power and therefore subject to critique on that basis.

    Nietzsche, Normativity, And Will To Power.Peter Sedgwick - 2007 - Nietzsche-Studien 36:214-242.
    The paper argues for a normative rather than psychological interpretation of Nietzsche's conceptions of power and will - and hence will to power. It does so with a view to rethinking the questions of Nietzsche's relationship to Enlightenment thought. Jürgen Habermas's view of Nietzsche's philosophy of power as epitomizing a counter-Enlightenment instrumentalism is contrasted with Maudmarie Clark's attempt to divest it of its power aspect in order to place him within the tradition of Enlightenment.

    Nietzsche's Will to Power: Biology, Naturalism, and Normativity.Christian J. Emden - 2016 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 47 (1):30-60.
    There can be little doubt that the “will to power” remains one of Nietzsche’s most controversial philosophical concepts. Leaving aside its colorful and controversial political history in the first half of the twentieth century, the will to power poses considerable problems for any serious reconstruction of Nietzsche’s project. This is particularly the case for analytic reconstructions, which view Nietzsche’s philosophical naturalism largely through the lens of metaethical concerns that are themselves grounded in a psychological reading of (...)

    On Parasitism and Overflow in Nietzsche's Doctrine of Will to Power.Dill Matt - 2017 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 48 (2):190-218.
    In his notebooks, Nietzsche depicts the will to power as the basic “principle” that informs his evaluations of beings, values, actions, and so on.1 It is his “objective measure of value,” he writes. In his published writings, he refers to the will to power in a similar manner: “What is good? Everything that heightens the feeling of power in man, the will to power, power itself. What is bad? Everything that is born (...)

    Will to Power and Sexuality in Nietzsche’s Account of the Ascetic Ideal.Maudemarie Clark - 2017 - Inquiry : An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 60 (1-2):96-134.
    This paper challenges a near universal assumption regarding the third treatise of Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morality : that its main concern is to explain the attraction or power of the ascetic ideal. I argue that GM III’s main concern is normative rather than descriptive-explanatory. An earlier paper argues that GM III’s leading question – What is the meaning of the ascetic ideal? – is equivalent to the question: What is the value of the ascetic ideal? In the (...)

    Nietzche\'s Philosophy of the Will to Power a Kind of Elan Vital and Creative Expression.Hope K. Fitz - 2005 - Dialogue and Universalism 15 (5-6):43-54.
    In this paper I argue that, for Nietzsche, the will to power is a kind of élan vital, i.e., vital impulse, force or drive. In living creatures, it is a drive to express their natures. In human beings, it is complex and must be developed in stages. The initial stages include becoming independent and striving for freedom of spirit and expression. Of the few that achieve the last stage, some will become the Übermensch or superior persons who (...)

    Genealogy and Will to Power.James Genone - 2001 - Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia 57 (2):285 - 298.
    Nietzsche's book On the Genealogy of Morals is often taken to be the high point of his critical project. Many of the positive aspects of Genealogy are often ignored, however, because they are difficult to explain. This article attempts to give an interpretation of the second essay of Genealogy in terms of Nietzsche's concept of will to power. On this basis, the second essay shows itself not to be simply an account of "bad conscience", but rather an account (...)

    Nietzsche's Philosophy of Culture: A Paradox in the Will to Power.Frederick Olafson - 1991 - Philosophy and Phenomenological Research 51 (3):557-572.
    I examine Nietzsche's concept of a nihilism of strength\nand the relationship in which it stands to the kind of\nvital self-assertion that he admired in archaic\naristocracies. What is new in Nietzsche's nihilism of\nstrength is a self-awareness that was lacking in the past\nand that would enable a fully autonomous human being to\nrecognize the "being" he imposes on "becoming" as the\nexpression of his own will to power. I show that this idea\nleads to serious incoherencies in Nietzsche's account of\nthis new kind of (...)

    Motivation and the Will to Power: Ethnopsychology and the Return of Thomas Hobbes.Charles W. Nuckolls - 1995 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 25 (3):345-359.
    Like the concept "structure" a generation ago, "power" now figures prominently in the anthropological understanding of human action. This essay attempts to locate the concept of power in the cultural history of Anglo-Saxon political discourse. Discussion focuses on a specific domain of inquiry—"ethnopsychology"— and on one of the texts recognized as exemplary of that domain, Lutz's Unnatural Emotions. In a field largely concerned with matters of cognitive process, of knowledge structures and patterns of inference, the concept of " (...)" is used to supply motivational force; motivation is the will to power. This is intelligible, however, only against the implicit background of Anglo-Saxon political theory, best represented historically in the work of Thomas Hobbes. It is argued that the circumstances of "post-modernity" make the return of Hobbesianism inevitable and that it is this tradition that ethnopsychology unwittingly reproduces in the quest to understand cognition, emotion, and agency.

In _Nietzsche's Sister and the Will to Power,_ Carol Diethe contends that Förster-Nietzsche's own will to power and her desire to place herself--not her brother--at the center of cultural life in Germany are centrally (...)

By providing a new interpretation of the term, Brian Lightbody argues that other aspects of Nietzsche’s philosophy, such as his ontology, epistemology and ethics become clearer and more coherent.

    Power, Liability, and the Free-Will Defence: Reply to Mawson.Wes Morriston - 2005 - Religious Studies 41 (1):71-80.
    Tim Mawson argues that the ability to choose what one knows to be morally wrong is a power for some persons in some circumstances, but that it would be a mere liability for God. The lynchpin of Mawson 's argument is his claim that a power is an ability that it is good to have. In this rejoinder, I challenge this claim of Mawson 's, arguing that choosing a course of action is always an exercise of power, (...)

    Will to Power as Alternative to Causality.Joshua Rayman - 2016 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 30 (3):361-372.

Nietzschean naturalists such as Ken Gemes, Brian Leiter, and John Richardson carry on with their appeals to causal-scientific forms of explanation as if there were no such critique.1 For instance, Leiter claims that Nietzsche is a naturalist in that he sets forth “theories that explain various important human phenomena … [in scientific terms], but are also modeled on science in the sense that they seek to reveal (...)

    Normativity and the Will to Power: Challenges for a Nietzschean Constitutivism.Andrew Huddleston - 2016 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 47 (3):435-456.
    The past decade and a half has seen a considerable flowering of interest in Nietzsche’s metaethics. In this time, Nietzsche has been presented with nearly as wide a range of views in metaethics as there are exegetical options on the table—views ranging from nihilism to subjective realism to expressivism to fictionalism to objective realism to, most recently, constructivism and constitutivism. Interpreters must square Nietzsche’s apparently skeptical remarks about the objectivity of value with his seeming commitment to a certain privileged set (...)

    Nietzsche Disempowered: Reading the Will to Power Out of Nietzsche's Philosophy.Ivan Soll - 2015 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 46 (3):425-450.
    Monistic or monistically reductive theories of human motivation are those theories that claim that all human behavior, despite its great variety, has only one basic and ultimate motivation. The most prevalent among them are psychological eudaimonism, the view that what fundamentally, ultimately, or solely motivates us is a desire to be happy, and psychological hedonism, the view that what fundamentally, ultimately, or solely motivates us is the desire to experience pleasure and avoid pain. Often the two theories are found fused, (...)

    I would like to defend a conception of life that many of us in philosophy practice but few of us preach, and with it a set of virtues that have often been ignored in ethics. In short, I would like to defend what philosopher Sam Keen, among many others, has called the passionate life. It is neither exotic nor unfamiliar. It is a life defined by emotions, by impassioned engagement and belief, by one or more quests, grand projects, embracing affections. (...)

    Nietzsche's philosophy of life-affirmation and perspectivism is often charged with skeptical relativism and a seemingly unsurmountable problem of self-referentiality that necessarily leads to a “performative contradiction” (Habermas). While the charge of skeptical relativism can be easily dismissed, the problem of self-reference is a much more complicated affair. After discussing certain aspects of Nietzsche's perspectivism, and particularly those texts in which he explicitly deals with the issue of self-referentiality, I come to the conclusion that Nietzsche's various judgements and his perspectivism can (...)

    Valuation and the Will to Power: Nietzsche's Ethics with Ontology.Henrik Rydenfelt - 2013 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 44 (2):213-224.
    Nietzsche’s texts invite perplexing questions about the justification and objectivity of his ethical views. 1 On the one hand, Nietzsche often appears to subscribe to strong forms of antirealism or even nihilism about value. This has resulted in some classical readings such as Danto’s suggesting that, when reading Nietzsche, we are being asked “to abandon our meta-ethical beliefs (to use contemporary terms) as to the possibility of justifying whatever moral beliefs we have.” 2 On the other hand, many if not (...)

    Once we get past moral outrage, Aristotle’s notorious discussion of slavery has several ever more disquieting challenges to modern thinking. Not only are slaves in a certain sense “natural,” but so is the master/slave relationship and so is mastery. While he thinks that living the right kind of state and having the right kind of character is a permanent solution to problems of slavishness, problems of mastery, of the despotic cast of mind, are permanent political problems, since the desire to (...)
