The dialogue began when I asked Babette Babich what characterises the (dying) tradition of continental philosophy, and why so many philosophers feel the need to ‘claim’ the term for their work. Following on from last week, the discussion continues as...

Introduction

Babette Babich teaches philosophy at Fordham University.

Author of several books, including Un politique brisé. Le souci d’autrui, l’humanisme, et les juifs chez Heidegger (Paris, 2016) and The Hallelujah Effect (Surrey, 2013), & editor of several book collections on Nietzsche and science, Nietzsche and critical theory, hermeneutic philosophy of science, as well as Patrick Aidan Heelan's (posthumous) book on Heisenberg (and Bohr and Einstein), The Observable (Oxford, 2016). She is also Executive Editor of the journal New Nietzsche Studies.   

Studied the life sciences at SUNY Stony Brook but after a change of heart (both on theoretical or methodological grounds and considering the deadly harm done to animals by biological research at all levels) she switched to philosophy.  She did a PhD in philosophy at Boston College including graduate research at Tübingen and Berlin in Germany and Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium.  

Currently Executive Director of the Nietzsche Society in the United States (est.1978) and Executive Editor of the journal, New Nietzsche Studies (est. 1996)  


She is inordinately fond of cats, hedgehogs, crows, hawks, hummingbirds, otters, and squirrels, the red, the grey, and the black. And the ounce. 

Bragging rights
William J. Richardson, not exactly fond of Nietzsche, was the reader on her dissertation. He asked her why she had not cited the original Aramaic in her thesis. She is still thinking about that. Not as salient as Patrick Heelan's question about axiomatic systems and Nietzsche's logic or Heinz Bluhm on Nietzsche and Luther. but still.
