"The Problem of Socrates" from Nietzsche's Twilight of the Idols offers one of Nietzsche's toughest critiques of Socratic reason. He raises challenging questions about whether Socrates' life was good and whether it was possible to justify it rationally.

The reading can be found here. The group will be led by Ian MacFarlane, a graduate student in the Department of Government.
