  • Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Difference Between Crime And Punishment

    Crime and Punishment was the book I enjoyed reading the most. Dostoevsky succeeded to create a real character in which I could mentally align myself with while reading the book; I felt the same emotions as the main character, Raskolnikov. Although Raskolnikov murdered Alyona Ivanonva early on in the book, the rest of the book kept my attention because of Raskolnikov’s punishment. In class, we discussed why Raskolnikov murdered the pawnbroker. There were several reasons thrown out and discussed;…

  • Nietzsche's Genealogy Of Morals

    In his second essay in the Genealogy of Morals, Nietzsche discusses the creditor/debtor relationship, the resulting bad conscience and most importantly the sovereign individual, “liberated again from morality of custom, autonomous and supra moral” (Nietzsche 59). In fact, Nietzsche further emphasizes that a sovereign person has a “power over oneself and over fate” (Nietzsche 60). I find Nietzsche’s description of this superhuman, sovereign state of mind both interesting and perplexing. I…

  • Nietzsche's The Genealogy Of Morals, Good And Bad

    In Essay I of Nietzsche’s The Genealogy of Morals, ‘Good and Evil’, ‘Good and Bad’, Nietzsche attempts to study the origin of contemporary morality by examining the conditions and circumstances by which the values of morals have emerged.

  • Nietzsche's Theory Of Human Transformation

    I am writing about Nietzsche’s ideas on what makes us human in which he explains the over man and the three transformations. I will also discuses Sarte’s belief what the purpose of human life is. Nietzsche is an existentialist that wrote a passage based on the human transformation in three stages. Sarte is also an existentialist that believes existentialism is humanism.

  • Nietzsche Will To Power Analysis

    However, if – as I have discussed above – Nietzsche claims that all of reality is Will to Power, then to show what it means to be in general is to show what it means to be as Will to Power. Of course it could be pointed out that Parkes is talking about human beings and Nietzsche about the overhuman. However, I believe that can be said for the latter is valid for the former. As mentioned above, in EH Nietzsche claims that because of his great health Zarathustra ‘is reality itself’ insofar as he…

In this statement, Nietzsche illustrates our lack of self-questioning and self-knowledge, criticizing man for treating the value of moral values “as given, as factual, beyond all questioning” (Nietzsche 8).

  • The Categorical Imperative In Immanuel Kant's The Stranger

    The categorical imperative, to Immanuel Kant, is an overarching principle of acting towards others the way you would like for them to treat everybody else; a slight furtherance of the ‘Golden Rule’(Where your actions are based upon the way you would like them to treat you). The categorical imperative creates a moral basis based upon one’s understanding of their own individuality coupled with an empathetic understanding of those around them, based upon their precepts that they’ve come to…
