The details:

Let Brendan know what event you have in mind, and if you win this contest, he’ll buy your ticket!

To enter, take a picture of yourself with the book, and share it with a link to the book’s website,, and let Brendan know where. For more information, see Brendan’s original post.

The first deadline has passed, but the contest has been extended to Saturday, April 30th, 2011.

It’s a great book, I’ve already read it and will be reviewing it (very  favourably!) for Spiral Nature in the coming week.

Course on Nietzsche and Paganism…and housekeeping

Cherry Hill Seminary LogoDr Brendan Cathbad Myers, professional philosopher, lecturer, author, podcaster and all ’round swell guy, is offering a course on Nietzsche and Paganism through Cherry Hill Seminary.

From the course description:

Perhaps the most misunderstood, difficult, and notorious philosopher of the modern age is Friedrich Nietzsche, creator of such powerful ideas as the Will to Power. Accused of promoting a kind of paganism, even within his own lifetime, he certainly mounted the most powerful critique of all religious thinking ever written in the Western philosophical tradition. In this course we will examine three of his most important books very closely, and we will learn why his work remains important for the study of ethics, religion, and culture and also why it remains dangerous.

It’s a 12 week Masters’ level course taught online, and as per Brendan’s note, “although it is a graduate level course, it may be audited by anyone (with [his] approval)”. It’s only $375, and it is bound to be excellent.

Unfortunately, I’ll be in Paris when it begins, and won’t be able to take it, but please do check it out and consider signing up. Continue reading »
