Nietzsche and Becoming Who You Are
Friedrich Nietzsche was a fascinating, eccentric, and sometimes controversial philosopher in the Existential and Nihilist tradition. In this lecture, we will look at his literary works and his personal life, as well as the impact of his legacy on the world.
- How can Nietzsche help us live more authentically?
- Who was he and how did this inform his philosophy?
- What is his legacy – in philosophy, to individuals, and in media?
Together we will translate philosophical theory into life practice, always with a critical lens.
