Nietzsche uber die frühgriechische Kultur / Nietzsche on early antiquity
Internationaler und interdisziplinärer Workshop, TU-Berlin, 4.-6. November 2011
Before Friedrich Nietzsche became one of the prominent philosophers of the 19th century and perhaps the most influential philosopher for the 20th, he was a classical philologist. He was famously granted a doctorate from the University of Leipzig without examination and appointed professor of philology at Basel University at the age of twenty-five. While a student, he studied under the preeminent classicists Otto Jahn and Frierdich Ritschl, and, as the only student to publish in the latter's Reinisches Museum für Philologie, produced a series of important articles and lectures on early Ancient society, poetry, and culture.
The workshop will host international scholars such as Glenn Most, Babette Babich, Thomas Brobjer and Joachim Latacz.
