PESSIS GARCIA, Begoña. Nietzsche and Kantian teleological judgment: Overcoming rational optimism. Sig. Fil [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.37, pp.90-119. ISSN 1665-1324.

This article aims to elucidate the central points in the critique of the Kantian notion of teleology set out by young Nietzsche in his unfinished doctoral thesis project of 1868. I will focus on the identification of two issues of Nietzche’s criticism: a theoretical one, pointed at the epistemological and ontological problems of the Kantian theory, and a practical one, which looks at the ethical issues implied in the Kantian doctrine. Basically, the objective is to show that Nietzsche rejects the concept of purposiveness (Zweckmässigkeit) for being a counterfeiting form of intellect -unnecessary for synthesizing experience and with a historical and physiological origin-, which, besides, favors a nihilistic and decadent ethics.

Palabras llave : Nietzsche; Kant; teleological judgment; purposiveness.
