2nd Online discussion: «Weber and Nietzsche»


We are very happy to announce our second online event, which will take place on Friday, February 18th at 18:00 (CET – GMT+1). On this occasion, Camilla Emmenegger, Octavio Majul and Christian Marty will continue the discussion on Weber and Nietzsche with Edith Hanke as mediator.

Weber and Nietzsche

Octavio Majul is a lecturer and researcher at the Gino Germani Research Institute (IIGG) of the University of Buenos Aires. His research focuses on the historical, methodological, and economic dimensions of Max Weber’s work. In 2019 he presented his master thesis «La influencia de Friedrich Nietzsche en el pensamiento político de Max Weber entre 1892-1898” [The influence of Friedrich Nietzsche on the political thought of Max Weber between 1892-1898].

Christian Marty is an independent researcher, CEO of Ed-Tech ‘Schlaufux’ and owner of ‘Schlaumacher’ tutoring school in Switzerland. His research focuses on the history of social thought and specifically on the works of Max Weber, Friedrich Nietzsche, Georg Simmel, Helmuth Plessner, and Theodor W. Adorno. In 2020 he published the book Max Weber ein Denker der Freiheit [Max Weber. Thinker of Freedom].

Camilla Emmenegger is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Florence. Her research focuses on political and social philosophy, history of modern political thought and theories of power and obedience, revolution and political violence, among other interests. In 2020 she finished her PhD thesis “Rivoluzione del mondo. Figure della soggettività in Max Weber tra radicalismo etico e violenza politica” [World revolution: figures of subjectivity in Max Weber between ethical radicalism and political violence].

To set our ideas in motion, we recommend visiting the blog post Octavio wrote for our website “Was Max Weber a Nietzschean?”, which will be debated by the other participants during the event.  

The event will be held online (via Zoom) and it’s open to all those interested, so share this news with colleagues!

We’ll share the link of the meeting and details a few days in advance but stay tuned to our Facebook Fanpage for any updates on the event and network.
