Keynote speeches and special session given at the international conference 'Nietzsche on Mind and Nature', held at St. Peter's College, Oxford, 11-13 September 2009, organized by the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford.
|1||The Genealogy of Guilt||Nietzsche's objective is not to challenge the Christian non-naturalistic account of guilt but to show that Christian representation of guilt is a product of the exploitation of human susceptibility to guilt as instrument of self-directed cruelty.||Bernard Reginster||22 Dec 2009|
|2||Nietzsche on Soul in Nature||This keynote speech examines if, according to Nietzsche, experience of nature is inevitably conditioned by some archetypal phantasm or cultural construction process or if unmediated apprehension of nature is possible.||Graham Parkes||22 Dec 2009|
|3||Who is the 'Sovereign Individual?' Nietzsche on Freedom||Nietzsche's Sovereign Individual (SI) argues that 1. Nietzsche denies free will and moral responsibility. 2. SI in no way supports a denial of 1. 3. Nietzsche engages in a 'persuasive definition' of the language of Freedom and Free Will.||Brian Leiter||22 Dec 2009|
|4||Consciousness, Language and Nature: Nietzsche's Philosophy of Mind and Nature||On the triangulation between consciousness, language and nature in Nietzsche's philosophy and contemporary philosophy of mind and proposes a philosophy of signs and interpretation as a basis for a philosophy of mind, language and nature.||Gunter Abel||22 Dec 2009|
|5||Nietzsche's Metaphysics||Nietzsche rejects a persisting self; real distinctions of objects and properties, categorical and dispositional properties, causes and effects; free will. He holds that determinism is true, reality is one and fundamentally experiential.||Galen Strawson||22 Dec 2009|
|6||Nietzsche's Value Monism - Saying Yes to Everything||Lecture on Nietzsche's attack on Value Dualism, as well as the view he offers instead and whether Nietzsche can sustain his Value Monism-the view that everything is good-given the pressures that pull him back into saying no as well as yes.||John Richardson||23 Dec 2009|
|7||Nietzsche Source. Scholarly Nietzsche editions on the web||Introduction to the scholarly editions of Nietzsche Source: the digital critical edition based on Colli/Montinary, the digital edition of the Nietzsche estate including works, manuscripts and letters and the future genetic edition of Nietzsche's works.||Paolo D’Iorio||23 Dec 2009|
