In his lifetime, Nietzsche referred to over 150 nineteenth-century writers in both his published writings and Nachlaß. Nietzsche’s use of nineteenth-century fiction and poetry ranges from somewhat nonchalant to extremely systematic. Indeed, the cornerstone of his “Advent of European Nihilism” in the late 1880s is the decline or decadence of literature during Nietzsche’s lifetime.

The panel attempts to focus on passages, individual novels or poems, and complete bodies of work in order to assess Nietzsche’s use of these texts in his philosophical project.

Cultural institutions are custodians of important collections of the material and natural world. They are repositories of material culture that reflect the cultures and practices of humanity and the natural world, revealing the fantastic, the foibles and the strange, in addition to the efforts and products of great ingenuity. Such collections, in various formats from the ephemeral to the digital, from the bespoke to the mass produced, are accessed by many different publics, including those seeking to understand or connect with elements of popular culture.
