Theme Camp idea need help - Nietzschean camp

Post by thesacreddice » Wed Jan 17, 2007 5:06 pm

Hello, we are philosophy graduates and musicians (2nd Burning Man experience) and are thinking of doing a Nietzsche-based theme camp, set up like a campus (with library, lecture/discussion hall), etc. There will be discussions, lectures, poetry, music.
I would like to see if any well-versed in Nietzsche would like to participate creatively or with construction materials, since, being philosophers, we know almost nothing about the latter!
Thanks!

p.s. for those with little experience in these realms, no, Nietzsche is not racist or anti-semitic (I'm a Jew!)

Master Morality & slave morality

Post by BRC_Santa2003 » Thu Mar 01, 2007 6:04 am

Always thought that a human-sized hourglass would depict this.

Transparent tops and bottom with seats along the walls. Top would be reserved for Masters and bottom for slaves. The orifice would be large enough for either to "become enlightened" and move to the other category.

Just a thought.

i like the concept, as studied him in my undergrad degree.

I think mustaches and overman (superman) suits are essential.

sadly, i decided that although i like his passion, his thinking is seriously flawed

I guess you'll be blasting the theme music from "2001"?

I;m dreading the endless loop of Conan the Barbarian.








How about Cheatzhe Camp, where they teach you to bore people and get laid by spouting meaningless philosophy.

As you can see by the responses, there's a challenge in transforming abstract concepts into tangible art & performance.

It’s easy, really. Just add a heaping dose of pretention.. Perhaps you simply cannot understand High Art.
