Nietzsche believed that metaphysicians considered their beliefs to be true and gave their ideas an objective truth. Nietzsche claims that all human values and beliefs, including belief in God, arose from the perspective of the desire for power and in order to preserve and preserve human life and usefulness; Without being able to give an objective existence to these ideas. This is exactly where Nietzsche finds the Western metaphysics vulnerable, because the followers of this knowledge considered the personal truth according to their own interpretation, thus removing the role of preserving life from the attributes of God and turning it against themselves. . Nietzsche, on the other hand, analyzed the pragmatist basis of the idea of God and reconstructed it in the next step. This article tries to show the philosopher's plan for God by analyzing the history of metaphysics in Nietzsche's thought and its relation to the classical idea of God, as well as trying to design another human being in the world to come.
