The 2017 Bernd Magnus Memorial Lecture: Bernard Reginster

February 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Department of Philosophy Presents:
Bernard Reginster (Brown University)

Ressentiment, Power, and Values

Ressentiment is an affective state that plays an essential role in the critique of morality Nietzsche develops in On the Genealogy of Morality. I attempt to elucidate the nature of this peculiar state, to identify what it reveals about human psychology, and to determine why it is especially well suited to influence beliefs about value.
