Another problem I experienced while attempting to script this video was in correctly striking a balance between the subject matter …

On Modernity Part 5: Nietzsche vs Rousseaunian Politics

Nietzsche’s critique of Cartesian subjectivity sets the stage for a critique of the kind of Enlightened politics that this subjectivity makes possible.
