ID : 1553   
« back to classes page

This new study group will be an exciting and challenging adventure in music, philosophy, and history as we trace the origins of contemporary thought back through the patterns of late nineteenth century German culture and late twentieth century French philosophy. Within the labyrinth of Nietzsche's thoughts are the origins of many later developments, from the Nazis to the post-modern thinkers Derrida and Foucault. Post truth begins with Nietzsche and his heirs. Readings will include Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy (Penguin Classics, 1993) and Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Penguin Classics, 1961) as well as short primary and secondary sources on Heidegger, Foucault, and Derrida.
