Summary/Abstract: F. Nietzsche by using the term „ genealogy" decleared the new science. Fie had a doubt about ,,allowed" morality and in his thesis ,,About genealogy of morality" he tries to investigate the origin of morality, to show it's genealogy. His all attention applies to the term: ,,prosper" and ,,harm" and their historical analysis and evolve. Step by step we come to the origin of morality, using the investigation of these terms. By confronting historical analysis about the ,,prosper" and ,,harm" F. Nietzsche is quoting on the principle of the,,power of the will". Nietzsche oppossites the valuable contrast, which comes from the difference of qualified dominating forces, with the traditional moral ,,prosper/harm" valuable possition. That is the way of the valuable outlook of ,,prosper/ harm". F. Nietzsche varies two ways of moralities of evaluation: the first one- primeval, aristocracy morality of knights, which decleares, that everyting, what is weak is ,,harm". The second one comes from the subjects, which aspirate authority from morality of slaves. This morality grows from ressentiment full of jealous and evaluates the weak ones as prosper" and the strong ones are called ,,harm". Setted oppossite of ,,prosper / harm" marks the supreme of Christian morality and its created ascetics ideals in the history of the world.
