Introduction

Babette Babich teaches philosophy at Fordham University.

She is the author of several books, most recently The Hallelujah Effect (available at a considerable discount here) and she has edited several more in addition to New Nietzsche Studies.   

She 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.  

She is 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.
