Abstract

In this paper, I argue that despite various differences in his philosophical thinking from early to late, Nietzsche’s reflections on the relationship between art and science forms a thread of continuity in his thought, which sees him ultimately committed to the possibility of truth and knowledge. Moreover, I argue that although he is not committed to it throughout his writings, consideration of the continuous character of Nietzsche’s thinking on the relation between art and science from an epistemic point of view helps us to make sense of the specific methodology that informs his proposal of the metaphysics of the will to power.
