Abstract: This paper argues that the Nietzschean method of “genealogy” had its origins, not in British philosophy, as has sometimes been held, but mainly in a German tradition that included Herder and Hegel before culminating in Nietzsche himself. The lecture then explains the method’s – primarily explanatory rather than evaluative – functions in light of that tradition. The lecture next considers three applications of the method to different aspects of modern morality (to its form, its content, and its scope), which the author considers successful. Two of these genealogies (those concerned with form and content) are due to that tradition itself, a third (concerning scope) is due to the author. Finally, the lecture considers the difficult question of the bearing of genealogy on the evaluation of moral outlooks, arguing for a middle course between the view that it discredits them and the view that it leaves their value quite untouched.
