Nietzsche and His Followers (PHI4137.01)

Karen Gover

Postmodernism, for better or worse, is often traced back to the thought of Friedrich Nietzche. But what is postmodernism? Keeping this question in mind, we will ground ourselves in Nietzcheā€™s thought, with an eye to his critique of the Western philosophical tradition. We will then turn to some of the important and influential philosophers of the 20th century as inheritors of the Nietzschean legacy.
