Nietzsche Studies Group in Brazil is an international research group that gathers Brazilian scholars of Nietzschean philosophy and, more recently, also French and Italian researchers. Founded by Scarlett Marton in 1996, GEN was originally linked to the Philosophy Department of University of São Paulo (USP). Having spread throughout the country, GEN continues to advance Nietzsche-studies and, toward this goal, welcomes different interpretations of Nietzsche’s thought. And most recently, in 2015, CENBRA – Centro de Estudos Nietzsche: Recepção no Brasil, which is engaged in works on the reception of Nietzsche’s thought in our country, has joined GEN.

As a pioneering initiative in South America, the Nietzsche Studies Group in Brazil intends to promulgate research on Nietzsche’s thought in our own country while nonetheless remaining well-connected with the different international Nietzsche Societies throughout the world. Accordingly, GEN acts on three different fronts: Cadernos Nietzsche (its academic journal), Coleção Sendas & Veredas (its book collection), and Encontros Nietzsche (its national and international conferences).
