Current Research

Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and the notion of activity
The notion of activity is crucial in German Idealism. This research seeks to explore the importance of the concept within German metaphysics from Kant onwards, with special emphasis on the works of Schopenhauer and Nietzsche. Its purpose is thus to determine certain limits to the understanding of the notion of will to power, in order to explain some interpretations of Nietzsche established in the course of the 20th century.
