LEITER CALLS OBAMA " A NIETZSCHE MAN"
I have been reading a lot of Brian Leiter, in the philosophical blogosphere ( The Leiter Reports). I came accross one from the primary election season, in February, entitled, "Obama is a Nietzsche Man!" Odd, as I had always intuited that there was a Nietzschean aura to Obama; not blatant, but subdued, muted, veiled. I recommend Leiter to anyone who loves to fuse philosophical reflection with carosusing through our cultural and political landscape: His insights are wonderful. Very nice for those who - like myself - have spent much time with the writings of Howe and Strauss.
