13/13 Seminar Series

The seminar series that focused on Michel Foucault’s Collège de France lectures and produced the Foucault 13/13 series during the 2015-2016 academic year; the seminar series focused on critical readings of Friedrich Nietzsche that produced the Nietzsche 13/13 series during the 2016-2017 academic year; and the seminar series that will focus on various modalities of disobedience and revolt and will produce the Uprising 13/13 series all follow a similar format. At each session, two or three guests, from different disciplines, are invited to discuss the readings and present on the themes of the seminar, after which there is an open discussion on the presented themes and questions. Each seminar will host specialists from across the disciplines, from Columbia University and from outside campus. It will also frame and interrelate with a Paris Reading Group that will run alongside the seminar. Please also see the Politics in the Present series which this series also falls under: http://heymancenter.org/events/type/13-13-seminar-series/

Nietzsche 13/13: Maurice Blanchot

Thursday, October 13, 2016

This is the third seminar in the Nietzsche 13/13 seminar series. 3/13: Maurice Blanchot. Maurice Blanchot was heavily influenced by Nietzsche early on, and wrote several works that directly and indirectly engaged Nietzsche’s thought. Like Bataille, Blanchot took a holistic approach and often focused on the fragments. This session will explore his relation to Nietzsche and how it influenced subsequent critical thinkers.

Nietzsche 13/13: Martin Heidegger (1/13)

Thursday, September 8, 2016

This is the first seminar in the Nietzsche 13/13 seminar series. 1/13: Heidegger. During the years 1936 to 1939, Martin Heidegger delivered a series of influential lectures on Nietzsche that would be published in a multi-volume book called, simply, Nietzsche. Despite being delivered at the time of his Nazi allegiance, the lectures nevertheless transcend fascism to develop a wide-ranging interpretation of Nietzsche’s philosophical contributions. They have been formative in subsequent readings of Nietzsche.
