History and memory rank as central themes in the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. As one of the last philosophers of the 19th Century, Nietzsche naturally belongs to the so-called ‘historical century’. The contentious exchange with the past and with antiquity – as much as the mechanisms, the dangers, and the lessons of memory and tradition – are continually examined and stand in close relationship with Nietzsche’s vision of life and his project of human development.The 2018 Jahrestagung of the Nietzsche Gesellschaft will focus on the analysis of core questions in the philosophies of history and memory, and their respective convergence in the thought of Nietzsche. The epistemological relevance of these central concepts will be thematized alongside those concerning history, forgetting, memory, tradition, and education. The discussion of these rich themes unifies a broad spectrum of questions, from that of cultural memory and contemporary philosophy of mind to a reconstruction of Nietzsche’s sources and reception.
