    An Interpretation of Nietzsche's On the Uses and Disadvantage of History for Life by Anthony K. Jensen.Jeffrey Church - 2019 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 50 (2):332-335.
    The second of Nietzsche's UM, "On the Uses and Disadvantage of History for Life", is one of his most celebrated and influential works, profoundly shaping the work of Continental theorists such as Martin Heidegger, Michel Foucault, and Paul de Man. For all the immense attention paid to this little text, philosophers and scholars have focused mainly on Nietzsche's reflections on culture, overlooking the text's epistemological concerns. Jensen's commentary rectifies this omission and succeeds admirably not only in analyzing the often cryptic (...)

    Nietzsche's Culture of Humanity: Beyond Aristocracy and Democracy in the Early Period.Jeffrey Church - 2015 - Cambridge University Press.
    Nietzsche scholars have long been divided over whether Nietzsche is an aristocratic or a democratic thinker. Nietzche's Culture of Humanity overcomes this debate by proving both sides wrong. Jeffrey Church argues that in his early period writings, Nietzsche envisioned a cultural meritocracy that drew on the classical German tradition of Kant and Herder. The young Nietzsche's 'culture of humanity' synthesized the high and low, the genius and the people, the nation and humanity. Nietzsche's early ideal of culture can shed light (...)

    Culture Beyond Identity.Jeffrey Church - 2015 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 41 (8):791-809.
    Liberal approaches to multiculturalism and cultural nationalism have met with severe criticism in recent years. This article makes the case for an alternative, Aristotelian approach developed in the work of the ‘founding father’ of culture, J. G. Herder. According to Herder, culture is worthy of political recognition because it contributes to the realization of our common but contradictory human telos. Only a plurality of cultures, each realizing a unique balance of our contradictory needs, can bring wholeness to our common nature. (...)

    Liberalism and Meaningfulness.Jeffrey Church - 2019 - Social Theory and Practice 45 (2):205-224.
    The contemporary debate between perfectionists and anti-perfectionists is at an impasse. This paper does not take sides in this long-standing debate, but finds common ground between both groups in the notion of “meaningfulness,” as developed recently by philosopher Susan Wolf and psychologist Roy Baumeister. This notion is distinct from the good life in that meaningfulness describes formal qualities of a good life, but not its basis and substance. Accordingly, I argue, we can expect far less fundamental disagreement about meaningfulness than (...)

    Historical and Critical Commentaries on Nietzsche.Jeffrey Church - 2018 - Nietzsche Studien Gesamtregister Bände 1-20 47 (1):458-464.
    This essay reviews two installments in the Heidelberg Academyʼs Historical and Critical Commentary series on the works of Friedrich Nietzsche. While Sarah Scheibenberger’s volume focuses on Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense, highlighting the sources and influence of Nietzsche’s text, Jochen Schmidt and Sebastian Kaufmann provide a detailed and extremely useful contextualization of Daybreak and of Nietzsche’s poetry.

    Nietzsche, Nihilism, and the Philosophy of the Future Ed. By Jeffrey Metzger (Review).Jeffrey Church - 2013 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 44 (3):495-497.
    In his introduction, Jeffrey Metzger states that “at some point in the past 20 or 30 years … Nietzsche’s name [became] no longer associated primarily with nihilism” (1). Metzger is pointing to the increasing contemporary scholarly interest in Nietzsche’s epistemology, naturalism, and metaethics. The worthy aim of this volume is to ask us to examine once again the underlying philosophical problem to which these views are a response, namely, nihilism. This volume helpfully reminds us that Nietzsche’s philosophical motivation still requires (...)

    Two Concepts of Culture in the Early Nietzsche.Jeffrey Church - 2011 - European Journal of Political Theory 10 (3):327-349.
    Culture remains a divisive issue in liberal democracies, and this article argues Nietzsche offers a principled middle ground between the conservative and progressive camps of recent and ongoing ‘culture wars’. Hence, this article challenges the ‘aristocratic’ versus ‘democratic’ Nietzsche debate by making the case that Nietzsche defended two opposed notions of culture in his early period work: a national or group culture and a cosmopolitan culture. This opposition is salutary, however, in that each form of culture moderates the excesses of (...)

  13. Infinite Autonomy: The Divided Individual in the Political Thought of G. W. F. Hegel and Friedrich Nietzsche.Jeffrey Church (ed.) - 2011 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    G. W. F. Hegel and Friedrich Nietzsche are often considered the philosophical antipodes of the nineteenth century. In _Infinite Autonomy_, Jeffrey Church draws on the thinking of both Hegel and Nietzsche to assess the modern Western defense of individuality—to consider whether we were right to reject the ancient model of community above the individual. The theoretical and practical implications of this project are important, because the proper defense of the individual allows for the survival of modern liberal institutions in the (...)
