Nietzche

HideShow resource information

He believes that religion has corrupted morality (like Dawkins)

Basic information:

  • Founder of post-modernism: truth is relative
  • Denial of absolutes - Critique of Christianity (could look at the decalogue)
  • Famous for his quote: 'God is dead' - revealing that the hold religion has on society has weakened
  • Morality has changed because it is not absolute

Nietzches believes morality has been influenced by religion negatively, and it is now a 'slave-morality' rather than 'master-morality'.
