Nietzsche Og Moralens Multiplicitet

Mathias Kjær Probst, Jesper Koch Bro & Mikael Frederik Holst Nørlund

Student thesis: Termpaper


This project, which takes its point of departure in Friedrich Nietzsche's Genealogy of Morals and Thus Spoke Zarathustra, investigates Nietzsche's thoughts on moral philosophy. Our main idea is that behind the seemingly polemical and deconstructing work, lies another rather creative philosophy. Two other philosophers, Immanuel Kant and Gilles Deleuze, both contribute to this project: Kant primarily in the investigation of Nietzsche's critique of morality and Deleuze primarily in the uncovering and understanding of the creative thoughts that lie hidden. Through the paper it will be explored, how Nietzsche deconstructs first morality, then the subject, and finally how he adresses the problems that appear after this. Concepts such as master and slave morality, ressentiment, the ascetic ideal, will to power, active and reactive forces, becoming, multiplicity, the three metamorphoses and the overman will be analysed in a way that opens for the possibility of us becoming fellow creators.
