Laszlo Jamf ,

This is a review.

I'm finicky about lectures on Nietzsche, because they too often domesticate and neuter/neutralize a body of work that is wild, dangerous, protean, inexhaustible. The lectures and commentaries on Nietzsche that I've heard rarely abide with the sprightly, captious, exhilarating spirit of Nietzsche's writing. But these lectures are, for the most part, excellent-- nuanced, clever, profound... my favorites were "Consciousness, Language and Nature", "Nietzsche's Value Monism", and "Nietzsche on Soul in Nature" -- really allowed me to luxuriate the more deeply, richly, lushly in Nietzsche's wilderness.

Oxford should stop trying to make podcasts

They are only tarnishing their supposed reputation as one of the most prestigious universities in the world. As with most of their podcasts, the audio is terribly amateur. The professor’s droning voice is lost in the echos of the room. Since the microphone is apparently among the audience (instead of the professor’s lapel, where it should be), the clearest sounds in the lecture are coming from cell phones ringing, or students coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses.
