In this article, it has been aimed to examine Nietzsche's main critique towards different understandings of morals in his era. With this criticism, it is aimed to integrally understand the opinions - which are articulated directly or metaphorically-towards morals which have been encountered. In here, while keeping in mind the difference between the concepts of immoralism and amoralism, Nietzsche's views are interpreted. Being parallel to that aim mentioned above, it has been investigated if there is a thinking in Nietzsche which can be seen as a kind of understanding of morals (maybe as the understanding of morals without morals) or not. And finally, it has been thought that if Nietzsche's views on morals have any value for the 21st century and upcoming 22nd century human or not, if there's something left to learn for this human from his critiques or not.
