Estudios Nietzsche: Revista de la Sociedad Española de Estudios;2013, Vol. 13, p39
The article discusses the way in which Nietzsche assumes the classic Socratic question on «how to live» in his middle work. It tries to show how the renunciation of morals does not contradict the aspiration to form a rational life. Thus, we will consider implications that involve the modern loss of all compulsory regulations. Moreover, we will examine the link between «free spirit», detached from certainties, and «taste», understood as a tool to remove abstract moral pretensions.
