Short Paper #1- Master and Man PHIL 002 Hierarchies exist in every sense of life , in every setting imaginable . From a business , to a football team , and even here at Penn State , in no functional society can every individual person be on the same social or economic level . Diversity among human beings comes naturally , and is necessary for the functioning of society in the world of today . Hierarchy leads to this diversity among human beings and allows them to strive to get to the highest level of happiness possible through perceived success . According to Leo Tolstoy , this highest level could only be achieved “by living for others” . The short story Master and Man , written by Tolstoy in 1893 , is a perfect example of the structure of hierarchy in human life , and his theory about achieving the highest form of happiness . Vasili Andreevich was a wealthy businessman in 1870s Russia . Nikita was his personal assistant . Nikita had served Andreevich with an unrelenting passion for most of his adult life .

    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.
