Abstract: 

This article considers the concept of pastorship and its relation to the denial or creation of subject. Foucault, like Nietzsche, by reducing of pastoral morality to the will to power and exercising of domination, believes that end of this morality is denial of subject and nihilism; an end which is presented through rejection of life and resentment towards powerfulness. The shepherd reduces the Christian subject to a knownable object. He wants to know subjects because he must take care of them. In Foucault’s view, this is dangerous: reducing subjects to dependent and obedient persons who will be unable to create. This article criticizes this narration of Christian morality.
