Nietzsche says, in effect, that between Plato, Augustine, and the Buddhist there’s “not a dime’s worth of difference. ” What features does he see them as having in common? Why does he not share these points of view? Nietzsche viewed our values in life in a different way than most philosophers. He had a different perspective in the meanings behind “good” and “bad.
” Most philosophers defined “good” as the weak and ill ones, by Judgement of ranking and high class to low class. Nietzsche believed that all philosophers lacked the “historical spirit itself.
They all have the common Judgement of determining the concept and judgement of “good. ” Nietzsche talks about how unegoistic actions were always praised as good even when they weren’t naturally good. Nietzsche believes that the judgement in “good” does not stem from those who goodness is rendered. This means those to who goodness was shown weren’t actually good. He believed that the noble and powerful ones, the ones who were ranked as good because of high- ranking, high-minded, and powerful ranked themselves and their doings of “good. The good good is compared to the word truth because the good is the truth and the ruth is the good.
The rich, high ranking, strong, beautiful, brave and powerful are associated with the truth and good. As for the poor, ugly, common and low ranking, they are associated with cowardice and lying. Nietzsche blames the Jews for the views and how people defined “good” and “evil” because the Jews, who were poor, and common, were in Nietzsche words “the most refined hates in human history. ” It is because of the Jews that people view the poor, and wretched as good and the powerful and noble as evil. This brings us to the conclusion that Nietzsche believes hey all have in common in what he calls the slave revolt in morality.
The slave revolt in morality begins when resentment becomes a creative force. It gives birth to new values and causes a battle between power, values, and ranking issues. The slave revolt morality causes the slave to feel much resentment against its master, Resentment that turns into evil. Imaginary revenge builds up within a slave against its master, turning the slave to “bad/evil. ” In the slave revolt morality, the slave see themselves as the good and their masters as the evil ones when in reality it urns into the opposite because of the resentment that builds up inside them against their masters.
The man of resentment allows for hatred to grow in him and having to rely on secrets and scheming, becoming more clever than the noble man. Also, slave morality declines what is different, and not itself. It says “no” to an outside and anything that is different, this is a creative deed. It makes people realize the distinctions between things. This is important because it us a system that helps level everything out instead of promoting greatness. Nietzsche By rosast6
