The Lisbon Nietzsche Group (LNG, formerly Nietzsche International Lab/NIL) is a research group dedicated to the study of the works and thought of Friedrich Nietzsche, the culture of his time, and the relevance of his legacy for our own time. The LNG was originally created by João Constâncio, Maria João Mayer Branco, and Katia Hay in 2009. Since then, it has obtained funding for 9 post-doc fellowships funded by the FCT, as well as funding for two FCT research projects, plus funding for an ongoing research project supported by the FCT and the DAAD (Proc.º 441.00 DAAD, Germany). The first project was called “Nietzsche and the Contemporary Debate on the Self”; the second “The Plurality of the Subject in Nietzsche and Pessoa”. Both the projects have now been successfully concluded. Since 2017, the LNG is coordinated by Pietro Gori.
From the beginning, the Lisbon Nietzsche Group has established protocols of collaboration with several of the most important Nietzsche research centers in Europe, including, for example, Centro Interuniversitario “Colli-Montinari” (Italy), Internationale Nietzscheforschungsgruppe Stuttgart (Germany); Association HyperNietzsche and Equipe Nietzsche (ITEM-ENS/CNRS, France); Grupo de Estudos Nietzsche (São Paulo). All members of the LNG collaborate actively with these other research centers by belonging to their research groups or seminars, attending their research meetings, and, in some cases, taking part in their scientific boards. As members of the LNG, they have published, since 2011, 15 books on Nietzsche (authored and edited), more than 20 articles in indexed journals such as Nietzsche-Studien and Cadernos Nietzsche (São Paulo), and more than 100 articles and papers overall.
