Impotence, Hatred and the Absolute Truth; On the Implications of Nietzsche's Conception of Resentment
Languages of publication
The article is an attempt reconstruct and analyze some of the most striking aspects of Nietzsche's conception of resentment. The author's main purpose is to propose, justify and interconnect essential tenets that guided Nietzsche in his psychological theory of resentment (historical implications of these views have been omitted) in order to show the role that resentment was made to play in the process of the reassessment of values, or better yet, falsification of values. The author is led to believe that resentment was a form of fanaticism, though perhaps one of its benign forms, that was strongly influenced by adamant convictions concerning an absolute superiority of certain set of values.
