The Royal Institute of Philosophy presents:

Keith Ansell-Pearson, 'Heroic-Idyllic Philosophizing: On Nietzsche's Middle Period'

Date:Fri 22 Feb 2013
Location:14 Gordon Square, London WC1

Description:The focus of my talk is on the "witty and graceful texts", as Foucault called them, of Nietzsche's neglected middle period (1878-82). I will show that an ethos of Epicurean enlightenment pervades these texts (Human, all too Human, Dawn, The Gay Science), with Epicurus celebrated for his teaching on mortality and the cultivation of modest pleasures. For Nietzsche at this time the teaching of Epicurus can show us how to quieten our being and so help a mind prone to neurosis. The talk will examine how the middle period Nietzsche develops a philosophical therapeutics inspired by Epicurean ideals.
