The Hither Side of Good and Evil: Desire and the Will to Power

  • Author / Creator

  • The following is an analysis of the affinity between the accounts of value of Nietzsche and Levinas—two philosophers commonly thought to be antithetical. I propose an account of value, derived from the aforementioned authors, according to which an enigmatic phenomenon beyond or hither from being orients one toward an invisible good. The analysis suggests that despite the fundamental role of value in philosophy and thought, value necessarily remains obscure.
