The first component to a good moral system would be humilityhumbleness Nietzsche would beg to differ In his bookThe Genealogy of MoralsNietzsche not only claims humility is a virtue of slave morality but also believes it to be one of the bad beliefs of aesthetic ideals Nietzsches perspective is that slave morality is for the weak and powerless while noble morality is for the strong and good Humility for Nietzsche falls into the slave morality because it shows a sign of weakness of people who cannot see their true values and rather rely on someone elses praises of them Nietzsche also beliefs humility to be a virtue of aesthetic ideals The three great slogans of the ascetic ideal are familiar poverty humility chastity Nietzsche 108 Nietzsche sees these virtues as being life denying developed as a reaction to noble morality as a form of submission to the noble He believes the weak formed these virtues in order to drag down the noble by making the noble feel evil in turn encouraging the noble to take a weaker path the path of slave moralityI believe Nietzsche perspective on humility is incorrect I believe being humble does not make one weak rather it makes one strong It shows one does not need to be prideful or boastful of ones abilities or belongings in order to feel appreciated Humility also shows one knows his self-worth and does not rely on what others think of him to feel good about themselves Humility is also a way of self-reflecting and wanting to improve ones abilities For example a doctor that makes a lot of money but does not feel the need to flaunt it and does not feel the need to show-off the luxuries he can afford is humble one he is also a strong doctor Because the doctor in turn does not need the approval of anyone else to know his self-worth he sees the truth in his abilities
