this morality concept have forgotten the origin of its value. For strong-will man, the good is powerful while the bad is weak and therefore he value what is in him because it helps him to self-actualize. A good example of master morality is Hilter; he was very powerful but he was not good or noble. Following his values, he exerted the will of power across Germany. On the contrary, slave morality emphasis on values things such as humility strengths, sympathy, rather than strength, pride and nobility. Unlike the sentiment in the master morality, slave morality is founded on devaluing what the masters values. Thus, since the master morality comes from nobility and strong, slaves originates in the weak . Nietzsche believes that this kind of morality is expressed in standard moral system such as Christianity. He therefore argues that the slave morality has taken over the western world and unlike what other philosopher thinks, he argues that the ideas that the slave morality identifies such as equality and democracy is a tragedy for humanity . Nevertheless, his emphasis on master morality shows that it is more evil.

    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.
