Nietzsche (Philology) 1. Where did our values come from? 2. Why do many people seem to value poverty, hard work, meekness etc instead of wealth, leisure and power? Farmers Masters “haves” Good life (valuables), luxuries, free time, good food. Vs Slaves “have nots” Bad life (w/o value), Working all the time barely scraping by. Envy… Slaves share values of Masters… Power, Wealth, Leisure time, Freedom Fantasy…telling stories, dreaming, thinking (these elaborate into stories of revenge)
