October 27 - Is the Self a Fabrication?
Some philosophers believe that this is Nietzsche's position. He does seem to say as much in certain texts: "There is no 'being' behind doing...'the doer' is merely a fiction added to the deed—the deed is everything." We'll read and discuss passages from Nietzsche's texts to attempt to clarify his claim and uncover his reasoning.
