The main purpose of the article is to show Nietzsche's philosophy as a reflection on man, life and morality; a reflection which does not aspire to devise a new philosophical system but rather to sketch an existential specificity of humanity. Three models of morality discussed by Nietzsche are pointed out: Dionysian-Appolinian morality, slave morality, and superman morality. Nietzsche's diagnosis of fall of man, of crisis in moral, existential and spiritual spheres can be treated not only as criticism of European culture, but also as a foundation of positive program of surmounting meager condition of man - only a man with the will to power, a man who overcomes the state of nihilism discovers who he is and aims at creative self-fulfillment, achieving dignified morality.
