"Nietzsche's will to power in man and society of Uganda".
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis analyzes the will to power of Nietzsche in the context of Uganda. The author wants to examine both social and political conflicts in Uganda in the light of will to power. This means that every conflict that has befallen any society in Uganda is because man wants to dominate others, to have more power, wealth, knowledge, etc than the rest. Nietzsche holds the principle of will to power to be a fundamental concept to which every human action can be reduced and through which it can be understood. However, unlike will to power as postulated by Nietzsche, the investigator wants to chronicle the evolution of will to power. Nietzsche’s will to power was a glorification of the strong over the weak, a form of might is right; and a tenet that was characteristic of his age-where there was no world social-political order as we have it today. This thesis maintains that much as will to power rules every action of man, this will to power has however evolved from the brute will to power of Nietzsche’s time and age to an enlightened will to power of the investigator’s time and age. Analyzes of various conflicts together with some tenets of a few philosophers indicated that there is an underlying principle to every human action. Will to power has posited by Nietzsche is a glorification of the German dictators of his time. It can be likened to Darwinian survival of the fittest. The study reveals another type of will to power: a positive will to power; a will to power of the strong (morally), an ideal will to power which is advocated by Christ. This will to power is will-to-become, according to the investigator. This principle transcends that of Nietzsche; and the researcher calls it will-to-become.
