Course Description: Derived from Friedrich Nietzsche is the statement that existence is justified only as aesthetic. In this seminar students read texts by Nietzsche that have had a particular impact on the literature, cultural theory, and aesthetics of the early twentieth century: the first chapters of THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY, ON TRUTH AND LIES IN A NONMORAL SENSE, and UNTIMELY MEDITATIONS, as well as excerpts from THE GAY SCIENCE, such as APHORISM TO THE DEATH OF GOD. Last but not least, another focus of the readings is the extent to which Nietzsche's writing style plays a special role in the effectiveness of his theses.
