Moral Psychology with Nietzsche presents a new interpretation of Nietzsche's radical ideas: there is no objectively true morality, there is no free will, no one is ever morally responsible, and our conscious thoughts and reasoning play almost no significant role in our actions and how our lives unfold. Brian Leiter defends these ideas on the philosophical merits and also enlists extensive evidence from empirical psychology that confirms many of Nietzsche's claims. From this analysis, Nietzsche emerges as a prescient psychologist, as well as a philosopher of the first rank, posing fundamental challenges to the conventional canon in philosophy from Plato to Kant.

Brian Leiter draws on empirical psychology to defend a set of radical ideas from Nietzsche: there is no objectively true morality, there is no free will, no one is ever morally responsible, and our conscious thoughts play almost no significant role in our actions. Nietzsche emerges as not just a great philosopher but a prescient psychologist.
