Zarathustra claims that the world revolves around the creators of values. Who are the creators of values and why does Zarathustra believe the world revolves around them?
Nietzsche sees the human being as a creator because he did not only believe that God is dead, but structured his philosophy to reflect that fact. When everything was based on the belief in God, all values were believed to come from him. One’s goal in life then would be to do the will of God.
In other words, the purpose of one’s life was already pre-determined. But with the death of God, Nietzsche argues that there is no pre-determined goal or purpose in life. But this does not mean that one cannot set a purpose for one’s life. As he rightly said in an 1873 note, published in Walter Kaufmann’s
