Abstract

PAul KATSAFANAS | BOSTON uNIVERSITY The North American Nietzsche Society held the first of its stand-alone conferences (apart from the American Philosophical Association) at Hunter College's Roosevelt House in New York City on October 14­17, 2016. The three-day event featured invited keynotes by Bernard Reginster (Brown University), Christopher Janaway (Southampton), and Beatrix Himmelmann (Arctic University of Norway). In addition, the program committee selected seven blind-reviewed abstracts from a pool of over sixty submissions. The conference concluded with a group discussion on Nietzsche's conception of philosophy, featuring invited presentations by Paul Loeb (Puget Sound), Jacqueline Scott (Loyola), and Daniel Conway (Texas A&M). A selection of papers from the conference is included in this issue. The first article is Christopher Janaway's keynote talk investigating what it would be to justify suffering. A second keynote, from Beatrix Himmelmann, discusses the relationship between right, justice, and dignity in Nietzsche's ethical thought. (Bernard Reginster's presentation is forthcoming elsewhere.) Four of the seven papers selected by this year's program committee follow. Matthew Dill (Boston University) argues for the importance of distinguishing between parasitism and overflow in the expression of will to power. Akshay Ganesh (UC Riverside) investigates Nietzsche's conception of honor and its relationship to empathy. Daniel Harris (University of Prince Edward Island) compares Nietzsche and Aristotle on friendship. Finally, Patrick Hassan (University of Reading) asks how the rarity of an individual relates to the value of that individual.
