GENEALOGY OF MORALS:THE ASCETIC IDEAL ON KNOWLEDGE AND TRUTH

etnicismo

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ascetic ideal is a seemingly self-denying force characterized by “poverty, humility, chastity” (3:8, 108) [1]. It is piety embodied, sensuality restrained. That such an ideology has flourished and recurred (as Nietzsche references with India) throughout societal development is a seeming paradox: the dominant ideal of humanity is a life-denying one. How, or rather why, then, has the ascetic ideal triumphed? Where does it come from? One easy answer is that there were no competing ideals.

SLAVE REVOLT IN MORALITY

RISENTIMENTO 2

 

 

 

 

In Friedrich Nietzsche’s Genealogy of Morals, he states the “the slave revolt in morality begins when ressentiment itself becomes creative and gives birth to values” (GM Essay 1; 10). This idea of ressentiment is prevalent in Nietzsche’s philosophy because it corresponds to the idea of master and slave morality and, most importantly, explains how the lower slaves are able to overcome the higher masters and change the dominant morality to the slave morality.

ETHICAL TRANSVALUATION AND CONSEQUENTIALISM

TRANVALUATION

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As secularized accounts of morality’s social origins, the theories of Italian Renaissance political thinker Niccolo Machiavelli and the 19th century German continental philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche call for a transvaluation of morality. 

If we analyze their systems of thought through the distorting, reductive lens of conventional modern connotations, we see the repugnancy of Nietzsche’s sexism or anti-Semitism or the cold, calculating, seemingly self-interested tactics of Machiavelli; as a consequence, we fail to delve deeper into the complexity of these works. 

This dismissive approach needs to be unlearned and replaced with a more detailed examination of how these figures redefine the notions of good and evil as the foundations of their philosophy and political theory, respectively.

DISSEZIONE DELLA MORALE

 

I Dissertazione  

La tesi che l’origine del concetto di buono sia da attribuirsi ai Signori, ai violenti, ai sopraffattori ai plasmatori-creatori di valori appunto, è sostenuta principalmente mediante argomentazioni etimologiche.

UTILITARISMO ETICO:ÉTICA ANIMAL

etnicismo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Se denomina ética animal, la rama de la ética aplicada que se propone el estudio sobre el estatus moral de los animales no-humanos, en tanto que pueden ser considerados agentes morales, es decir, en cuanto pueden ser origen de bienestar, felicidad y utilidad para todos quienes viven en el planeta Tierra (humanos o no-humanos) y en tanto que pueden sufrir malestar o maltrato. En tal sentido, la ética animal es una extensión del derecho a la felicidad que se reconoce a todos los seres vivos.

DESARROLLO DE LA MALA CONCIENCIA:EL SACERDOTE CRISTIANO

RISENTIMENTO

 

 

 

 

Interiorización de la fuerza, después interiorización del propio dolor: el paso del primer al segundo momento de la mala conciencia no es más automático de lo que era el encadenamiento de los dos aspectos del resentimiento. Una vez más se requiere la intervención del sacerdote.

WHY WE ARE MORAL

stirner 7

 

 

 

 

 

 

ALTHOUGH ÷ and as we have many times explained÷morals are modes of conduct which have become customary, and the intent of the passionate rage in support of the moral is to shield these customs from anything which may cause them to vary, this exposition does not explain why these modes, primarily special and particular, adapted to serve the interests not of All but of a Few should have become customary for All: so much so in fact that the guardianship of morals is in the safest hands when it is left to the fierce partisan feelings of the “Crowd.”
