'there are
no moral phenomena at all, 
only a moral interpretation of phenomena'

F. Nietzsche

1. freedom
2. guiltinessless
3. what makes you feel better?
4. what do you really want?


  1. thank you for your pretty cool blog, I'm always following it! but I'm wondering, do you read and repeat to comments that people post here?
    go on the way you go now Xenia, great job!

  2. I'm asking myself if Nietzsche was christian and this question is a cultural thing in general? Didn't Nietzsche said once 'god was dead' as well..?

    I found something from shakespeare concernig this issue:
    Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil; With them forgive yourself. - William Shakespeare

  3. Well the question is, if what he said is really true? He also said “Fear is the mother of morality”. But is that really true? Aren’t there people who do something, not because they fear the consequences, but, for example, want to make other people happy? Sure, you can argue, what is happy? Who tells us what makes us happy? Is it the morality? If we fulfill what it tells us, does it make us happy? Probably yes. BUT there are things which you cannot question like that. Pain, Hunger, love or a full stomach. Pain is something bad. Even if we have no morality, it is still bad. It’s the same with hunger. And is morality really involved in love? And are there any consequences if we don’t give hungry people something to eat?


  4. Hello,

    If I may respond to the previous message, or more exactly to the first question.
    I think we can not say what Nietzsche said is true or not.
    On the one hand, have we the right and ability to do that? ... And on the other hand, I think that would be challenging some of his perceptions ..

    And to complete the message of Xenia, I would add:
    Morality is a variable concept which derives from the specific culture of an individual (Schopenhauer)

    Morality is something personal and specific to each one because we all have a different point of view.

    Best regards.
