By studying some of Nietzsche’s texts, the aim is to introduce the student into one of the most important thoughts of the coeval world, him being the philosopher who stands up to the Western philosophical tradition at the level of the development of its own knowledge. With Nietzsche, a doubt comes into play into the way the West has posed and built its knowledge, apparently free of all suspicion. The course will mainly deal with the text Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The book itself represents something completely new. The skillful classical text interpreter, who knows well how much sense can be made of every detail in them, attempts by himself to write a classic. And, from the beginning, he fills it with the equivocality with which classics come to be throughout the centuries.
