Nietzsche and the Youth

Updated: Jan 18

Here I discuss the very important--but so often overlooked--aspect of the youth which orients so much of Nietzsche's political project. That is, I discuss Nietzsche's understanding of what philosophy must become if it is to decisively transform culture. The approach I take is a thorough interpretation of Nietzsche's second book: The Untimely Meditations. In particular, I discuss Nietzsche's critique of scientific education and its effect on the youth. Also, I emphasize how it is that hope is an extremely important aspect of Nietzsche's teaching and, in fact, a virtue according to Nietzsche.
