"Nietzsche and Phenomenology," Canadian Philosophical Association, Concordia University, May 30, 2010.
This symposium wishes to examine, without anachronism, not only the presence of a Nietzschean questioning in the traditional problems addressed by phenomenology, but also the possible sources themselves of the phenomenological method within the perspectives proposed by Nietzsche. Our symposium aims at re-opening the debate initiated by Heidegger, once again appraising the role played by Nietzsche within the history of contemporary European philosophy. All presentations will deal with some of Nietzsche’s main themes (the deconstruction of the subject, perspectivism, will to power, linguistic constitution, etc.) with regard to their implicit or explicit treatments in the works of Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty. Through the papers presented as part of this symposium, we wish to show that this “re-connection” can bear new ethical insight.
