Friedrich Nietzsche is the most important philosopher since Plato and has set the course of philosophy and psychology in new directions that will endure for a 1000-years. He understood himself to be �untimely.� During his lifetime no one seemed to understand what he was trying to do. His failure to be understood was a constant disappointment for him. He did have hopes that future generations might be better placed to appreciate his style and his ideas. In September of 1886 while on a short vacation he wrote a letter to a friend,
� I�ve recently sent you a book. Its title is Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future. (Forgive me! It isn�t that you�re supposed to read it, much less give me your opinion of it. People will dare read it, I suppose, some time around the year 2000.)
We are, apparently, somewhat behind schedule.
We read Nietzsche as he wanted his most worthy readers to read him: slowly and carefully, a few pages at a time, and with an eye towards their place in Nietzsche�s continuous development and their immediate relevance to our lives today, and to the future of us all.
It is my intention to work through all of his texts, returning to and re-reading those that seem most important. By the time we finish the complete works, it will be necessary to start over. We will be ready to go deeper and higher.
He saw himself as the “First Psychologist” and with poetic intensity opened the door to the unconscious for Freud and the first generation of psychoanalysts. Freud said of him, “The degree of introspection achieved by Nietzsche had never been achieved by anyone, nor is it likely ever to be reached again.” High praise, indeed, from the founder of Psychoanalysis.
I have acquired some significant Nietzsche memorabilia including a unique life-sized bust from a Berlin museum and an engraved cane given to him by Cosima Wagner. The items include a pair of his glasses, a razor strop, an engraved inkwell, and a pen. Most were acquired through the Antiquitaetshaus Schmitt & Herzog who provided Echtheitszertificaten (Certificates of Authenticity) It is my hope that having these articles, surrounded by his works and a library of secondary literature, and being overseen by the bust will inspire the Nietzsche Reading Group to go higher, deeper, and farther into the future.
Limited chairs are available by application only. Anyone with a serious interest and a meaningful familiarity with Nietzsche is welcome to apply. I am interested in attracting the widest variety of perspectives on Nietzsche. He would expect nothing less. He expected worthy readers to be able to find their own meaning in his work and wrote to confound the unworthy. It is not surprising then that over the last 100 years of Nietzsche scholarship there has been little agreement on what he meant in any of his books. He wrote primarily in aphorisms that were at once creative, literary, harshly critical, and always evocative. As a psychotherapist it seems to me that his writings may fairly be described as a giant projective test: your interpretation of Nietzsche says more about you than it does about Nietzsche. His purpose was to induce self-overcoming and cultural renewal. We are really quite behind schedule so come join us.

The ideas and methods of Friedrich Nietzsche are the ideas and methods of modern thought. His is, arguably, the first philosophical voice of modernity: the first to truly face the world without presupposition, the first to question everything that we have believed and that has enabled us to live for millennia. God, truth, "the good," morality, equality, democracy, reason itself: all are cast before the cold - or not so cold - eye of his scrutiny and none emerges the same � some must die, some must humble themselves, some must run in fright - but none escapes examination. Nietzsche revolutionized both the lexicon and the style of philosophical thought. As magnificent as the writing of the Pre-Socratics, of Plato, of the philosophes, of Hume, Kant, Hegel and Schopenhauer can be, nothing prepared the world for the writing of Nietzsche; and no one preceded him in opening up the scope of philosophical inquiry to the entire range of human experience. In the eyes of Freud, he is the first psychoanalyst; he thematized the primacy of language long before Saussure and Wittgenstein; the idea of "perspective," which revolutionized the study of man, is his; he created the method of immanent critique. The man who "philosophized with a hammer," who exhorted the "free spirits of Europe" to "smash the old tables of value," who wrote the obituary of God, has in some way himself, expectedly if against his will, been raised onto a pedestal, as is the way with all real greatness in the hands of helpless acolytes. For "a people is but a detour of nature to produce five or six men... and then, yes, to get beyond them as well." Nietzsche's work has the impact of an injudiciously opened fire door - perhaps the door to hell itself. And one is easily lost among the hundreds of rhetorically magnificent experiments in thought which Nietzsche has outlined - almost any one of them is enough to deeply shake the world of any one of us. To find firm ground is the work of a lifetime, but perhaps a misguided effort. Even as one begins to locate the inklings of structure in his work, the work itself undermines them.
One hundred years after his death, and in spite of world fame on an order that must strike any fastidious reader as absurd, Nietzsche's is still a voice in the wilderness. Soren Kierkegaard dedicated his works, perhaps not all that hopefully, to "the one;" Nietzsche's most famous book Also Sprach Zarathustra is subtitled, "A Book for Everyone and No One." With his preternatural insight into the human psyche, Nietzsche recognized that, in some fundamental way, regardless of how many might encounter his thought, his insights and discoveries were his alone, and that the way of the disciple can never ultimately be the way of the thinker. As he said, "He but poorly repays his teacher who always remains a pupil."
And yet the fact remains that Nietzsche's effect on western history and culture has been profound, astonishingly widespread and enduring. It would be impossible to identify another thinker who has so fundamentally altering the outlook of intellectual possibility for a new age - and there was perhaps no more delightful prospect to Nietzsche than to maximize human possibility. Instead of a coterie of timid magistri preening in the cloak of the master - of the sort left by other seminal thinkers like Kant or Hegel - Nietzsche revealed unsuspected paths for the likes of the greatest creative spirits of modern times, artists and philosophers like Mann, Wittgenstein, Husserl, Heidegger, Musil, Hesse, Camus, Mahler, Di Chirico, Sartre, Kafka, Rilke, Freud, Unamuno, Eeo Strauss, Bataille, Bely, Shestov, Foucault, German Expressionism, Italian Futurism, the New York School and dozens of others, distressingly including Rosenberg, Goebbels and Ayn Rand. Recent scholarship has even credited the influence of Nietzsche with a significant part in both the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the eventual, and gradual, "counter-revolution" that toppled that system. For anyone who takes the Nietzschean philosophy seriously, the vast range of his influences, and the even vaster applicability of his thought, must be a source of real disquiet. At the same time, it suggests that Nietzsche sounds the depth of the human spirit � any human spirit. One can find in Nietzsche what it had never before been possible to find in a thinker: oneself. (And this, of course, means "kicking away the ladder," to borrow a phrase from Wittgenstein.)
One often wonders, fresh from a session in Nietzsche's world, how the bigger world can continue on as if nothing had happened, when all of its idols have been smashed and all of its prejudices exposed. The fact is that it does not, that it has changed, and it has changed profoundly - but that Nietzsche cannot be the support for a systemic change. The questionable beliefs and laws and compromises by which we live are, for all that, necessary - not in detail, but in the structure of social life. What has changed is within some of us, and perhaps eventually social consequences beyond the creations of some individual spirits ensue. We are a world profoundly different from the world in which Hegel lived; whether Nietzsche merely gave voice to an inevitable Zeitgeist - magnificent an achievement as that might be - or wrenched the very viscera of a world whose self-satisfaction was the seed of its decay, remains an open question. Nonetheless, the idea itself of an open question came into being only in the work of Nietzsche.

The bibliography below represents 25 years of study and exploration. I am particularly interested in the convergence of Nietzsche, psychoanalysis, and the pre-Socratic praxis of philosophy. Suggestions concerning important texts that I am missing will always be greatly appreciated. This bibliography, of course, is a work of becoming never to be seen as an achievement.
