Friedrich Nietzsche is perhaps the most challenging—and controversial—philosopher of the 19th century, and beyond. This lecture course will explore some of the basic themes of his thought from his first book, The Birth of Tragedy, to some of the last works of his career. Topics will include the nature of art and the artist, the critique of Christianity, the ideas of history and truth, Nietzsche’s philosophical anthropology, and the concept of the Übermensch.
