A look at the connection between revolutionary political thought and nihilism: the course focuses on the history of Romanticism and anarchism, from Fichte to some colourful literary characters (German and English) to the deadly serious Russian nihilists. Our central concern is the notion of an infinite, all-powerful human freedom.
