Possible Discussion Groups

Two proposals have been made for Discussion Groups to commence next semester. The suggested topics for discussion are the works of Nietzsche and Foucault, respectively.

At the moment nothing has been set in stone (i.e. when the discussions would run, or their structure and focus), but any thoughts on other possible topics or any preferences would be welcome.

Well Peter, thank you for at least commenting. Do you still want your Nietzsche group?
