Don’t miss this opportunity to undertake a close reading of a renowned philosophical text with esteemed Campion academic Dr Jeremy Bell.

Friedrich Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals contains Nietzsche’s fullest treatment of Christianity as a spiritual “slave revolt” against aristocratic, warrior morality, as well as an historical-cum-philosophical account of “bad conscience” and a wide-ranging and at times seemingly unfocused discussion of the meaning of “ascetic ideals”. As a class, you will read the entire text, paying careful attention both to its philosophical content and to its literary character.

Participation is open to Campion students and the general public. A copy of the text will be provided to all enrolled students.

Should I enrol as a Miscellaneous or Auditing student?

However, it is important to note that each institution has its own guidelines for recognising prior learning. If you are currently enrolled in a course and intend to use this unit for credit, we encourage you to speak to your institution before enrolling. If you are interested in undertaking this unit purely out of personal interest, enrolling as an Auditing Student is likely best.

The Modern Philosophy Intensive is a Level 300 unit designed for third-year undergraduate students. It assumes reasonable skill in composing academic essays and engaging with written texts. If you have undertaken undergraduate studies in the past or if you are currently enrolled at another institution, you will likely have the necessary skills to successfully complete this unit as a Miscellaneous Student.
