Abstract

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 of the development of morality as a whole, and one which shows the beginnings of a normative teaching. /// A obra A Genealogia da Moral é normalmente considerada como o cume do projecto crítico de Nietzsche. A verdade, porém, é que muitos dos aspectos positivos da Genealogia são frequentemente ignorados, pela simples razao de que são difíceis de explicar. O presente artigo pretende dar uma interpretação do segundo ensaio da Genealogia em termos do conceito nietzschiano da vontade de poder. Neste sentido, o segundo ensaio revela ser algo mais do que uma mera narrativa acerca do desenvolvimento da moralidade no seu conjunto, explicação essa que põe a descoberto os inicios de uma doutrina normativa.
