    In "The Genealogy of Morals," Friedrich Nietzsche attacks the notion that behind every deed is a doer. He argues, rather, that “there is no ‘being’ behind doing, effecting, becoming; ‘the doer’ is merely a fiction added to the deed.” * At stake in this claim is the question of choice. If we believe there is a doer who performs a deed, it becomes possible to imagine that the doer chose to perform this deed. To accept Nietzsche’s position, on the other hand, is to deny that choice precedes the deed. Do you agree with Nietzsche s argument? Does his position on “the doer” as a fiction preclude the possibility of holding subjects accountable for their behavior? - * Friedrich Nietzsche, “On The Genealogy Of Morals,” On The Genealogy Of Morals and Ecce Homo, ed.

    Nietzsche was a German philosopher, essayist, and cultural critic. His writings on truth, morality, language, aesthetics, cultural theory, history, nihilism , power, consciousness, and the meaning of existence have exerted an enormous influence on Western philosophy and intellectual history.

    Because much of Nietzsche’s philosophical work has to do with the creation of self—or to put it in Nietzschean terms, “becoming what one is”— some scholars exhibit uncommon interest in the biographical anecdotes of Nietzsche’s life. Taking this approach, however, risks confusing aspects of the Nietzsche legend with what is important in his philosophical work, and many commentators are rightly skeptical of readings derived primarily from biographical anecdotes.

    Read paragraph 190 in Beyond Good and Evil. It briefly explains how primitive is every utilitarianism. Nietzsche supposes that good must have higher and more noble basis. It consists in arranging society according to holders of power and the others. Utilitarianism, democracy - nay socialism - are the greatest dangers for man and his good.

    Nietzsche attended a boys'' school and then, later, a private school, where he became friends with Gustav Krug, Rudolf Wagner , and Wilhelm Pinder, all of whom came from highly respected families.

    "Hence the ways of men part: if you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire." [29]

    Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( 15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900 ) was a German philosopher, whose critiques of contemporary culture, religion, and philosophy centered on a basic question regarding the foundation of values and morality.

    Doing the work isn t just writing the essay, it s also coming up with the ideas. Professors don t do their work by just having someone tell them what to say and they write it, they think of it themselves. However, here are some rhetorical questions that might help: What is human nature? How does it flourish? What does Nietzsche say about human nature? Is it in contradiction to what you say? Why is your view right? Why is Nietzsche right? Are there any ways he s wrong? What would someone who disagrees with Nietzsche say? What do you personally believe about his ideas? Remember, you re allowed to disagree, and you re probably encouraged to! Challenge the preconceptions that he puts forth and come up with your own ideas, rather than just supporting him. You ll likely get a better grade.
