Das Wort der "Genialität der Gerechtigkeit" stammt von Nietzsche selbst, der bekannte, dass er diese shape der Genialität mindestens ebenso hoch schätze wie alle übrigen. Dessen ungeachtethat die Rechtsphilosophie Nietzsche in erstaunlicher Weise vernachlässigt, obwohl er selbst sie als besondere Herausforderung begriff. In den Gesamtdarstellungen wird er zumeist nur mit den Schlagworten des Übermenschen und des Willens zur Macht bedacht. Mit nichts ist er im rechtsphilosophischen Schrifttum so wenig in Verbindung gebracht worden wie mit dem Begriff der Gerechtigkeit, der ihm jedoch erklärtermaßen besonders am Herzen lag. Der Autor untersucht Nietzsches überaus zahlreiche Worte über die Gerechtigkeit von seinen frühesten Schriften über die Aphorismen und den Zarathustra bis zu seinen nachgelassenen Fragmenten und setzt sie ins Verhältnis zu seinen Aussagen über das Recht.
