Anti-Education: On the Future of Our Educational by Friedrich Nietzsche

By Friedrich Nietzsche

AN NYRB Classics Original

In 1869, on the age of twenty-four, the precociously outstanding Friedrich Nietzsche used to be appointed to a professorship of classical philology on the college of Basel. He appeared marked for a profitable and traditional educational occupation. Then the philosophy of Schopenhauer and the tune of Wagner remodeled his targets. The genius of such thinkers and makers—the type of genius that had emerged in historical Greece—this on my own used to be the touchstone for real realizing. yet how was once schooling to serve genius, specifically in a contemporary society marked increasingly more through an unholy alliance among educational specialization, mass-market journalism, and the militarized kingdom? whatever greater than good scholarship was once known as for. a brand new method of training and wondering, a brand new philosophy . . .

What that new method could be used to be the query Nietzsche broached in 5 vibrant, well known public lectures in Basel in 1872. Anti-Education presents a provocative and well timed reckoning with what continues to be one of many critical demanding situations of the fashionable world.
