Event description


This course will undertake a reading of Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals, which put forward a scathing and highly influential attack on the ‘conventional’ morality of the time which still resonates to this day. Nietzsche’s criticisms are taken very seriously by contemporary philosophers such as Bernard Williams and Alasdair MacIntyre. After completing the Genealogy, we will go on to look at some commentaries on Nietzsche’s ethics by more contemporary philosophers, according to the interests of the group. This is a live online course, so participants will need to have access to a computer, microphone and headphones, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This course follows a lecture+ seminar format; the first hour will be a live lecture given by Dr Sam Fremantle, the second hour will be a seminar discussion on questions arising from the lecture and reading.
