Genealogical Thinking in Nietzsche’s Wake

This blog is part of the communication objectives of my Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship research project entitled “Genealogical Thought”. The project, funded by the European Commission since September 2019, is intended to prepare the ground for a history of genealogical receptions of Nietzsche in the 20th and 21st centuries (especially by questioning the readings of On the Genealogy of Morality and the personal genealogical practices of authors like Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, Judith Butler and Bernard Williams). To that end, I use a Nietzschean methodology in the sense of § 12 of the second essay of On the Genealogy of Morality: namely, I don’t presuppose the existence of o common conceptual kernel permeating the whole genealogical tradition, but I simply follow the thread of successive reinterpretations of an unchanged word. For “the form is fluid, the ‘meaning’ even more so…”

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 787525.
