Sam Robinson 3/3/08 The Good Life Nietzsche Nietzsche adds a different feeling and flavor to his philosophies. He explores many topics, from venturing into the unknown and dangerous, to “lunatics”, to the individuality of every action ever. In entry 290, Nietzsche talks about the differences in the outcomes of certain types of people lives. I find it very insightful how he shows that the person who makes it his goal in life to survey what people like as far as strengths and weaknesses, and then mold himself accordingly to make himself appear to be adored. I have always had problems with people like this for the same reason Nietzsche does: they are puppets of society, and have no real self-identity ever. The small taste of acceptance by society prevented them the never-ending delight of self-acceptance. He goes on to praise those people who have strong self-identities and will go out and get what they want in life.

Unformatted text preview: They set nature free. The third case, which Nietzsche called the contrast of number two, is the person who has a weak self image and lacks power over themselves can end up rejecting the world who in their opinion has rejected them first by being free nature. He makes a final point that really hit the argument home, that human beings ATTAIN satisfaction with themselvesfor only then can one stand to look at (other) human beings. In entry 355, Nietzsche talks abut how every single action is completely unique. He basically challenges conformity and the norm mentality, which I agree with wholeheartedly. I like this argument because it eliminates the rankings we put on actions, like great, noble, etc. Nietzsche just wants things to be as they are. Nothing more, nothing less....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
