    *4pm Saturday July 9*


    **“Friedrich Nietzsche - From Nazi icon to Leftist idol”*

    *Our Speaker, **Ted Sadler*was formerly a lecturer in philosophy at
    the University of Sydney and the Australian Catholic University. He
    has written several books on German philosophy.He will discuss: “In
    the 1930's Nietzsche's ideas of the Superman, Master Morality, and
    the Will to Power were hailed by Nazi ideologues, who presented him
    as a philosophical figurehead of their movement and a prophet of
    their cause. Hitler himself paid tribute to Nietzsche and
    financially supported the Nietzsche Archive run by Nietzsche's
    sister Elizabeth. Thirty years later Nietzsche became the idol of
    the postmodernist left, which status he continues to enjoy. How
    could this happen? What does this say about Nietzsche's philosophy?”

    *Come and join us for a stimulating talk and lively discussion *at
    the Hall at the Blackheath Neighbourhood Centre, cnr Gardiner
    Crescent & the Great Western Highway, 4pm-6pm, followed by informal
    discussion at the pub.Admission $10 includes a big afternoon tea
    before question time. Hall is heated.All welcome!**
