Intro

This special episode is dedicated to Ms. Lise van Boxel, Nietzsche scholar and our former Tutor at St. John’s College. As we traced back in memory her teachings and personal qualities, we found that intellectual heritage came in a form distinct from the intellect, and life was breathed at moments unnoticed. Perhaps at this special time a commemoration suggests fewer things than a conversation, which is endearing and “polytropos” enough to recall less of our loss, but more of her givings.

The episode is conducted in Mandarin Chinese.
