I know roughly what Nietzsche conceives 'ressentiment' to be, basically the inability to react to (and hence festering of) the feeling of being oppressed and powerless over a long time.
Does anyone know of any good critiques of his account of 'ressentiment'? I'm writing an essay answering the question 'what is 'ressentiment'?' and I'm told to be critical, but I'm not sure what angle to take.
I guess one could be critical of whether his account of 'ressentiment' in the creation of slave morality is plausible.
Also if we say are to say that it is plausible we should seek to understand the mechanism of how 'ressentiment' creates slave morality (i.e. is it conscious/subconscious, how did slave morality come to affect the nobles etc).
These don't seem like proper critiques to me though, more like nit-picking, especially since Nietzsche is not really about 'watertight' philosophical theory.
If anyone has any better takes I'd be glad to hear.
