＂Origins (ἀρχή)＂ has been the very first and last question raised by humans. As the beginning of Western philosophy, it already appeared as early in the ancient Greek mythology, while also in Nietzsche's thinking in the late 19th century. However, by way of exploring the relation between Hesiod's Theogony and Nietzsche's ＂will to power＂, this study would like to reveal the different possibility of understanding the meaning of ＂origins＂. The present study attempts to demonstrate that the concept of ＂origins＂ in Hesiod's Theogony has not only led the development of Metaphysics in Western philosophy over the past two thousand years, but also influenced Nietzsche's idea of multiple origins. Facing the predicament of Metaphysics in the 19th century, Nietzsche put forward ＂will to power＂ as the world's origin by way of genealogy, and developed the concept of multiple origin connoted in ancient Greek mythology, opening up new directions in the 20th century's philosophy.
