Robert Pippin

Robert Pippin is a philosopher and professor at the University of Chicago best known for his work on Kant and Hegel. He has also written on Marcuse, Nietzsche, modernism as a philosophical problem, and Hollywood Westerns.

"In more traditional philosophical terms, Nietzsche often stresses that we start going wrong when we become captured by the picture of revealing 'reality', the 'truth', beneath appearances, in mere opinions. This can be particularly misleading, Nietzsche often states, when we think of ourselves in post-Kantian modernity as having exposed the supposed groundlessness 'underneath' the deceptive appearances of value and purpose, when we think that we have rendered impossible any continuation of Zarathustra's pronounced love of human beings, life, and the earth."
