Andreas Urs Sommer, professor of philosophy at Freiburg, is directing the center.

press release from the university says, “The goal of the center is to go beyond the well-trodden paths in casting light on the life, work and thinking of Nietzsche. This includes the indexing of Nietzsche’s wide-ranging reading matter, as well as a digital-genetic edition and commentary on Nietzsche’s immense legacy.”
