Summary/Abstract: This article is about the notion of the will to power in Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy. In the philosophy of the author of Beyond Good and Evil, this idea shows up as crucial. Moreover, it appears in Nietzsche’s philosophy in many quite different contexts. Of these, three would seem to be most important: metaphysics, anthropology and ethics. The will to power occupies a privileged place in each of these. In this paper, the author attempts to show the differences separating the various presentations of the concept of the will to power in Nietzsche’s philosophy. The author also tries to resolve the difficulties arising from the ambiguous character of the notion itself.
