Close Reed (Interview) #17: Lise van Boxel - Warspeak, with Michael Grenke

The Reeds Podcast

We continue our discussion of modernity and what to do about it with another book from a St. John's tutor: the late Lise van Boxel's Warspeak: Nietzsche's Victory over Nihilism.  We are also lucky enough to be joined by her colleague, friend, and fellow tutor at St. John's, Michael Grenke. Besides working with her very closely on the book, including writing the introduction, he has translated some of Nietzsche's works.  The book is a close reading of Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morality, a polemic against the slave morality which Nietzsche diagnoses as the cause of modern nihilism. The group begins by discussing various aspects of the moral-theological prejudice, a central idea in Van Boxel's reading of Nietzsche. We also spend some time discussing how this sets up what is promised in the subtitle of the book: the victory over nihilism.

[21E06] 特輯:In Memory of Ms. Lise van Boxel

WūJīMāChā 瞭望台

Intro This special episode is dedicated to Ms. Lise van Boxel, Nietzsche scholar and our former Tutor at St. John's College. As we traced back in memory her teachings and personal qualities, we found that intellectual heritage came in a form distinct from the intellect, and life was breathed at moments unnoticed. Perhaps at this special time a commemoration suggests fewer things than a conversation, which is endearing and "poly-thropos" enough to recall less of our loss, but more of her givings. The episode is conducted in Mandarin Chinese.
