Nietzsche’s Master

When Nietzsche’s name arises the first thing that comes to mind is his educational background.  A former philosopher, from Germany, and lived around the 19th century.  Since then his findings in religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy, and science have astonished the world.  One of his greatest researches is defined as “Master vs. Slave Morality.”  In his theory, morality derives from a primeval time, which eventually evolved into our own morality today.  Centuries ago there were dominant classes that Nietzsche called “masters”, these “masters”, created a code in which all subordinates of their society had to follow.   These masters did this to basically state “This is who I am, and you must follow me”, an affirmed state of being.  With this in mind, they also enforced their views among every subordinate in their society, creating a known dominance, when they are in the presence of “he.”  The master does realize that there are other non-masters, and these people are looked down upon and viewed as despicable, for he, views himself as the good or right in a matter and the non-masters as the bad, or the wrong.  The non-masters may follow this code of morality and subject themselves to the master knowing that they are the despicable person, and that they are not as great.  Furthermore the masters do not think outside of the normal, and are considered to not be free spirited.  They also believe that who they have created is the supreme being, and are not willing to obtain more knowledge over a period of time that may change their point of view.  Masters are close minded and they are not free spirited, which opposes Nietzsche’s views.
