We saw in Chapter 3 and Chapter 6 that ressentiment can hinder the attainment of justice to others as well as interpersonal justice. In the following, I will be mostly concerned with the obverse of this negative conclusion, namely, with what Nietzsche thinks is positively required for the attainment of justice—thus, not with how ressentiment impedes justice, but with how justice involves overcoming ressentiment. If ressentiment can stand in the way of justice, then it must be restrained and curbed if justice is to be attained: the man of justice stands in opposition to the man of ressentiment. In order fully to understand this relation of justice to ressentiment, Nietzsche’s understanding of the capacity to be just has to be fleshed out in detail.
