Note for Tonight’s Reading Group

18 Jun

It was just pointed out to me by Jeff, that the translation of Zarathustra that I uploaded doesn’t translate the assigned section as “gift-giving virtue.” The section of that text that we are reading for tonight from that text is the short section called “On the Bestowing Virtue” in the uploaded translation, and can be found starting on page 55.

Note that we will also be covering a more substantial section in the Genealogy of Morals.
