FNS 2023: ‘Reading Zarathustra as a dramatization of the philosophy of the free spirit series’
Really happy to be delivering my paper ‘Reading Zarathustra as a dramatization of the philosophy of the free spirit series’ at the International Conference of the Friedrich Nietzsche Society 2023.
The title of the conference is ‘Nietzsche and the Lyric / Nietzsche und das Lyrische’ and is at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, 14-16 September 2023.
My paper explores how Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883-5) dramatizes the philosopher’s preceding free spirit series: Human, All Too Human (1878-80), Dawn (1881), and the original edition of The Gay Science (1882).
This is to say, concepts from and the trajectory of the philosophy of the free spirit series are selected and interpreted through the images, the poetry, the lyrical milieu of Zarathustra.
