2.00 - 5.00 pm
A Saturday School with John Clarke
Friedrich Nietzsche: the uses and abuses of philosophy.
An investigation into the serial exploitation of his ideas.
I will be talking about his influence (deserved or otherwise) on the Nazis and more recently on the Alt-right in the US, as well as briefly about his influence on existentialism and postmodern thinking. I will be also be talking about Nietzsche’s own misuse of philosophy.
