Nietzsche on Reality as Will to Power: Toward an “Organization-Struggle" Model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


The goal of this article is to shed light on Nietzsche's notion of reality through a critical examination of the notions "will to power," "struggle," and "organization." In the first section, I discuss the ontological status of the will to power. I then elaborate this notion on the basis of the (relation among the) concepts "organization" (section 2), "form" (section 3), and struggle (section 4). Although I discuss the concept of form in a separate section, I argue later that organization and form are too interrelated to be conceived as distinct elements. In section 5, I test the "organization–struggle" model that I have developed by applying it to the problem of decadence. I then conclude with a short discussion of the results of this study and also of some problems it raises.
