In a four page paper, reflect on the following points:
- What is the value of giving a critique of moral values like that of Nietzsche’s?
- What are the problems in his analysis? Where can you find prejudices in his views that are problematic for a contemporary audience?
- Explain whether or not you think the problematic views that Nietzsche presents should invalidate his work overall. Should we throw out the theories of philosophers who might present provocative and useful ideas but nonetheless might have other beliefs or values that we consider unappealing or even harmful, or is it better to retain what is helpful in a philosopher’s work while critiquing and moving beyond his or her weak points?
