In this eighth installment of our quarterly series, Philosophers in the Midst of History, I discuss the life, thought, and importance of Friedrich Nietzsche in his historical context. Nietzsche is known for a host of works, ranging from the Birth of Tragedy through the Genealogy of Morals to the posthumously published Will To Power In this lecture, we discuss Nietzsche's diagnosis of nihilism as the key problem for western culture - and indeed for the world - in the two centuries ahead of him, the 20th and 21st centuries. Nihilism represents a "devaluation of the highest values", and leads to the search for some way of refounding values in the late modern age We also discuss Nietzsche's views of morality and valuation, including his distinction between master morality - focused on good and bad - and slave morality - focused on good and evil. The topic of the Ubermench or Superman, came up as well. Other talks in the series focused upon Plato, Aristotle, Boethius, Anselm of Canterbury, Rene Descartes, Thomas Hobbes, and Hannah Arendt.

The series has been renewed for next year, and we will be discussing Cicero for the ancient period, Augustine of Hippo for the medieval period, John Locke for the early modern period, and Albert Camus for the late modern period.
