In Nietzsche’s Footsteps is a philosophical travel memoir. A thrilling, vicarious journey provides the setting for an earnest discussion and pragmatic reflection on elements of Nietzsche’s biography and philosophy.  In particular, the book wrestles with the contrast between Nietzsche’s philosophy of individualism–which goes hand in hand with his own isolated life, and the author’s life as a family man. Along the way we share parts of Nietzsche’s biography and reflect on some central ideas of his philosophy, including ways in which our culture may or may not have followed in his footsteps as well.


JONATHAN R. COHEN is a professor of philosophy at the University of Maine Farmington. His first book was Science, Culture, and Free Spirits: A Study of Nietzsche’s Human, All-Too-Human (Humanity Books, 2010), and his next project concerns Nietzsche’s philosophy of music.

At the Inkwell reviews "Twoxism"

Benjamin Schmitt reviews Twoxism by Claudia Serea & Maria Haro for At the Inkwell.

Throughout the book, Serea and Haro find a way to move beyond the pairings depicted either through these narrative means or others. And while a couple of the pieces were just verbal repetitions of the visual, many of them were interactions that unlocked new ideas and images. This is the best kind of ekphrasis.
