This article critiques three aspects of Clark and Dudrick’s book. First, I question Clark and Dudrick’s claim that Nietzsche recognizes a distinct will to value. Second, I argue that Clark and Dudrick’s analysis of Nietzschean drives is philosophically and textually problematic. Third, I investigate their claim that Nietzsche understands the self as a “normative ordering” of drives, which they distinguish from a “causal ordering.” I raise some doubts about the cogency of this distinction.
