    Nietzche's criticisms of religion and society come from the relationship to his nonsystematic psychological project, and his forceful and incisive philosophy, as he believes that people should be more open minded instead of living under the shadows of morals and religion blocking that keep humans from seeing the world as it really is.


    Nietzche identifies himself as a psychologist, analyzing human instinctive behaviors and characteristics and incorporates them into philosophy, to develop values with the good of humanity in mind rather than conforming to conventional morals associated with religion; he states that humans are in the twilight of the idols, meaning being stuck in a twilight, and blocked from the truth of life.

    Nietzsche thought that philosophical argument addressing moral speculation, have never reached a rational consensus to serve as a foundational proposition about morality.

    Nietzsche challenges the reader not to agree or disagree, but to grow from his knowledge and readings.
