Public lecture: Philosophy after Heidegger: The French turn to Nietzsche

Join Dr. Alan D. Schrift, F. Wendell Miller Professor of Philosophy, Grinnell College, as he discusses how the leading philosophers of the 1960s - Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze and Jacques Derrida - turned from Heidegger, phenomenology and structuralism to the works of Nietzsche and questions of truth, power and difference as they developed their own philosophical positions - positions that would come to influence a wide range of thinkers in the humanities and social sciences through the last decades of the 20th century and into the 21st.
