There are many persistent misconceptions concerning Nietzsche's idea of the SuperMan. The author of the suggested reading attempts to explain what the German philosopher actually meant, and why we should be paying attention.
The Café is run by City College Professor of Philosophy Massimo Pigliucci, and it's based on the principle of the Socratic dialogue. Every meeting has a simple theme (e.g., should we be afraid of death? What's the ethics of eating?), which is introduced by Massimo on the basis of a short, accessible, suggested reading. The rest of the meeting then features an open discussion among participants, facilitated by Massimo, aiming at sharpening our thinking about whatever subject matter is being examined.
