Nietzsche's Study of Greek Rhetoric ERNST BEHLER University of Washington When Nietzsche assumed his professorship of classical philology at the University of Basel in 1869, his lectures were not only devoted to the literature, philosophy, and history of the Greeks, as we might expect, but also comprised courses on the formal components of classical learning such as grammar, meter, rhythm, and rhetoric.' It might be that Nietzsche did not deal with these latter subjects out of a personal interest but because of teaching obligations connected with his appointment. Nevertheless, these lectures did constitute a large part of his teaching activities at the University, which were supplemented by regular teaching at the Paedagogium from 1869 to 1876.? This was the high school (Gymnasium) in Basel, which at that time had a strong classical ("humanist") orientation. Nietzsche's task was to prepare the pupils of the upper classes for the university, not necessarily for the study of classical philology alone. Scholars who have dealt with Nietzsche's notes for these courses, testify to their relevance for an understanding of his later writings, yet this part of his work has never generated much interest in traditional Nietzsche scholarship and has also been neglected
