If you are looking for some philosophical stimulation, you might check out Salt Lake Community College’s philosophy conference next week, which will focus on Nietzsche’s philosophy. USU’s own Dan Alexander and Alex Tarbet will be presenting on Friday, and I will be presenting on Thursday. The conference will also feature a number of Nietzsche scholars from around the world, as well as a wide range of student presentations. (If you have class on these days, you might try this ploy on your professors: “Don’t you think part of my undergraduate education should involve the exciting give-and-take of discussion with my peers in academic settings?” But if you use this ploy, you damn well better show up!)
