Question: The German philosopher Herder argued against war as a legitimate course of action and criticized the age-old justifications for the use of military force and subjugation of one nation by another.
What should replace the glorification of military achievement, heroism?
Answer: Nothing. A hero is someone who can prevail over himself, over his egoism. The hero is the one who defeats himself. By this he is glorified.
