Description

1 Zamosc W 5:30pm to 8:20pm In this course, we will examine the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche through some of his most important and influential works. Some of the texts we will read include: The Birth of Tragedy, The Untimely Meditations, Beyond Good and Evil, and The Genealogy of Morals. One explicit aim of the class will be to explore whether and how Nietzsche’s thought changed during the course of his intellectual development. Another goal will be to try to understand not just Nietzsche’s various criticisms of the philosophical tradition but his positive contributions to it as well: that is, the ideals and values he sought to promote.
