A RAMBLE - IS NIETZSCHE SOCRATES WITH A FLUTE?

September 20, 2015

This conversation takes the form of a ramble around our house on a rainy Friday afternoon. We start off with a discussion of Nietzsche's 'eternal return of the same' which leads to the question of Nietzsche's attitude to Socrates. From there, the Socratic question emerges for consideration. We talk about both its existential and political dimensions, drawing out the questioning of desire and its relation to future thinking and utopianism.  There's lots more and even a concluding guitar improvisation entitled 'story'.
