Of course it would be more accurate to say 'analytic philosophy' and music. q.v. should you doubt it. Pictures from aeons ago, taken in 2012, including Roger Scruton, and rescued from imminent closing of the net, i.e., the ...

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.
