Robert B. Pippin is the Evelyn Stefansson Nef Distinguished Service Professor in the John U. Nef Committee on Social Thought, the Department of Philosophy, and the College at the University of Chicago. He is the author or editor of nearly a dozen books, including, most recently, Hegel's Practical Philosophy: Rational Agency as Ethical Life.
"Pippin presents a much-needed new approach and appreciation of Nietzsche.... [He] adroitly starts fresh with Nietzsche, considering his work holistically and in the context of both early psychology and 19th-century French morality. In his novel reading, Pippin exposes, the folly of underappreciating Nietzsche's irony and self-criticism." (Choice)"
