Ms Jenny Goodall is a Postgraduate Researcher (PGR) within Philosophy at the University of Southampton.

B.A. Philosophy, University of Southampton.

M.A. Philosophy, University of Southampton.

My B.A. dissertation focused on Nietzsche's views on free will and the relation between these and his notion of "being oneself". My M.A. dissertation focused on Nietzsche's critique of moral values and his alternative values.

Research interests

My thesis topic is Nietzsche's views on human suffering and how they connect to Schopenhauer's. I aim to demonstrate in detail that although Nietzsche agrees with Schopenhauer's contention that suffering predominates in human life, his response to this radically diverges from Schopenhauer's and that Nietzsche's views are a reaction to Schopenhauer's.  I am developing a close study of Nietzsche's views on human suffering, including the topics of Nietzsche's highly individualistic conception of human beings, compassion and pity, human greatness, value, affirmation and negation, and comparing Nietzsche's views on these issues with Schopenhauer's.

I teach on the undergraduate ‘Ethics' and ‘Knowledge and Mind' modules at the University of Southampton. I have also taught both Philosophy and English for other institutions.
