Reevaluating Values and the Politics of Difference in Friedrich Nietzsche Belief
Nietzsche is a nihilistic thinker. His nihilism comes down to the deflation of all values. The German thinker thought of himself as a revolutionary in the Germany of that time (1844-1900); thus, he intended to overturn the entire system of values that has existed until then. Nietzsche proposed a re-evaluation of all values. The key concept for his thinking is the will of power, which is the essence of life, manifesting itself in different ways; the central notion of his ethical system (and, implicitly, of his political views, which are tightly connected) is inequality. Thus, the politics of difference are in harmony with his famous notion of freedom: “I am free, ‘he’ must obey”. This kind of politics can only be imposed by a superman who, by his superior will of power, legislates in this direction for all mankind.
