Modern Philosophy and Theory Reading Group #03

Nietzsche meeting 03

Tuesday, 20 June 2017 6:30-8:30 pm

Modern Philosophy and Theory Reading Group in Association with The Machete Group

The Modern Philosophy and Theory Reading Group convenes roughly every fortnight at the Marginal Utility Gallery to work through salient texts in modern philosophy and contemporary critical theory. It aims to offer a platform for people interested in collectively thinking and discussing literature grounded in the social, political, artistic, existential and economic problematics of modern life.

The next few sessions will focus on Friedrich Nietzsche’s The Genealogy of Morals. The next session will be on Tuesday 20 June @ Marginal Utility Gallery—2nd Floor, 319 N. 11th St. 6:30-8:30pm.

We will be discussing the aphorisms 7-12 of Nietzsche’s book. Please read this text in preparation for the discussion but note that the reading is not required for attendance and participation. Also, please note that we will be using the Oxford University edition and the Cambridge University edition. The latter can be found in full online and is easily downloadable.

No prior knowledge of Nietzsche is required for attendance.

For any questions and if you want to be put onto the mailing list, please contact Hammam Aldouri: hammamaldouri@yahoo.co.uk
