  • Nietzsche

    An examination of Nietzsche's central views, including the role of tragedy, the place of science, the eternal recurrence, the will to power, and the primacy of the individual. We will also examine Nietzsche's ambiguous attitude toward philosophy and his influence on literature and criticism.
  • Philosophy of Art: Aesthetic Values in Art and Life

    Plato's argument against 'art' in the "Republic" is not about 'art' at all. The course begins with Plato, examines how the philosophy of art has tried to respond to him anyway, and applies our conclusion to the contemporary situation of the arts and their relation to the rest of life.
