SPEL colloquium

Speaker: Carlos Cortissoz


December 5, 2012
Robert Guay, Associate Professor, Philosophy
IASH Fellows’ Speaker Series:  Nietzsche on Truth and Politics
Nietzsche's account of truth is usually taken as an offering a radical form of skepticism or relativism. Robert Guay will argue that Nietzsche's main interest in truth was in identifying a conflict between a transcendent sense of truth and a sense of truth required to govern linguistic and epistemic practices; Nietzsche's concern was that a common conflation of these senses leads to harmful effects on a variety of social practices.
