Nietzsche on/and Style

Workshop of the Lisbon Nietzsche Group. Hybrid Event. October 7th 2022

The concept of style takes on central importance in Nietzsche’s philosophy and finds a multiplicity of applications. The focus of this workshop will be to explore not only Nietzsche’s multifarious uses of language and communicative and rhetorical strategies, but also his peculiar style of thinking and philosophizing.

This is a hybrid event. For those who are not in Lisbon and would like to attend online, free registration is required through this form. The link to the zoom session will be sent a few days before the event.
