Write an essay on Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals.

Consider the following passage from Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals, Essay 1, section 2:
“On the basis of thispathos of distance,–they first arrogated the right to create values, to coin the names of values. What did utility matter to them? The point of view of utility could not be more alien and inappropriate to such a high-temperature outpouring of the highest value-judgments when engaged in the making and breaking of hierarchies: for here feeling is at the opposite end of the scale from the low temperature presupposed by every prudent calculation and utilitarian estimation…. As I said, the pathos of nobility and distance, the enduring, dominating, and fundamental overall feeling of a higher ruling kind in relation to a lower kind, to a ‘below’–that is the origin of the opposition between ‘good’ and ‘bad’…. It follows from this origin that there is from the outset absolutely no necessary connection between the word ‘good’ and ‘unegoistic’ actions, as the superstition of the genealogists of morals would have it.”
For your fourth reading response paper, you must paraphrase the argument in this passage. Paraphrasing it must involve putting it inyour own words.
