Brian Leiter is Karl N. Llewellyn Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the Center for Law, Philosophy, & Human Values at the University of Chicago. He works on a variety of topics in moral, political, and legal philosophy. His current Nietzsche-related work concerns Nietzsche's theory of agency and its intersection with recent work in empirical psychology; Nietzsche's arguments for moral skepticism; and the role of naturalism in Nietzsche's philosophy.
Its okay. Whenever I mention Nietzsche to a philosophy professor, they usually squint and give me a look as if that is some strangely specialized, more so emotional and non-argumentative individual that they've looked over, reading at most one or two of his books---the first which is Thus Spoke Zarathustra.... The second book, if there is a second, is usually a confused reading of Beyond Good and Evil. But none have carefully read a book like Twilight of the Idols or Genealogy of Morality.
