THE MAIN ROOM

Dead Philosophers’ Club

The Dead Philosophers’ Club brings the wisdom of philosophy’s history alive. Philosophy addresses life’s great and profound questions and asks us to question ourselves. The Club is a space for everyone who is captured and amazed by the question, what it means to be. By consulting the great thinkers of the past we can see what matters for us today. What we can learn from philosophers is how to live the good life – and that includes the questions on how to die well and how to be in the world as it is.

The first Club meeting will focus on Nietzsche’s insight into the nihilism of modernity. Nietzsche understood modernity as the age of nihilism, but rather than despairing he aimed to provide tragic responses to the challenges ahead. The talk will outline Nietzsche’s historical understanding of nihilism and point out his responses to it: Amor Fati and the Eternal Recurrence of the Same. After the talk, there will be plenty of time to discuss Nietzsche’s ideas in depth. 

As a gift, you will receive a PDF of the talk. 

On your host: Johannes Achill Niederhauser holds a PhD from the University of Warwick. He read philosophy at King’s College London and studied PPE at the Free University of Bolzano in Italy and at the University of Washington. Johannes currently teaches philosophy at Birkbeck College and will soon publish his first book on Heidegger’s theory of death.
