perspective of the master-morality “good” and “bad” is analogous with “noble” and “despicable”. Therefore from the master-morality point of view, “bad” means the ruled and those who are despicable because they are different. Masters see themselves as “good” because they are honest, proud, and healthy and are “determiner[s] of values” (275).

    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.
