Adorno on Nietzsche

“Nietzsche failed to recognize that the so-called slave morality that he excoriates is in truth always a master morality, namely the morality imposed on the oppressed by the rulers. If his critique had been consistent as it ought to have been, but isn’t—because he was too in thrall to existing social conditions, because he was able to get to the bottom of what people had become, but was not able to get to the bottom of the society that made them what they are—-it should have turned its gaze to the conditions that determine human beings and make them and each of us into what we are.”
