  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Truth; Knowledge; Instrumentalism; Fictionalism; Nietzsche.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, theorists developed approaches to Nietzsche's philosophy that provided an alternative to the received view, some of them suggesting that his view of truth may be his most important and original contribution. It has further been argued that Vaihinger's fictionalism is the paradigm within which Nietzsche's view can be properly contextualized. As will be shown, this idea is both viable and fruitful for solving certain interpretive issues raised in recent Nietzsche scholarship.
