Dissertation Title: The Limits of Freedom: Nietzsche’s Moral and Political Psychology
Dissertation Committee: Michael Allen Gillespie (Chair), Ruth W. Grant, Alasdair MacIntyre, Rom Coles
recent years, scholars have characterized Nietzsche’s political philosophy in
terms of either radical aristocracy or a pluralistic form of individualism.
I argue in my dissertation that, despite these differences, both
interpretations nonetheless share a misleading characterization of Nietzsche as
a philosopher of individual freedom that fails to account for the central
importance of his underlying critique of the free will.
I maintain that only by understanding his philosophy in light of his
underlying critique of human freedom is it possible to explain the dual nature
of his political philosophy and thereby to understand both the positive
potential and the limitations of Nietzsche’s thought more generally.
