THUS BLOGGED ZARATHUSTRA: My senior essay is online. It’s about Nietzsche’s rejection of eros and loyalty. I haven’t read the thing in about a year, but I haven’t seen these arguments made elsewhere (not that I’ve necessarily been looking). It’s part of an ongoing project of describing how love and loyalty ground metaphysics and therefore ethics. It also includes an excerpt from a completely rockin’ Judah Halevi poem. So you should read it. Criticism very, very welcome. And I apologize for its raggedness and rambliness–there are lots of bits I stuck in once the essay was finished, and they don’t fit in well with their surroundings. Not unlike the author, I suppose.
