When the Danish literature critic Georg Brandes (1841-1927) the 10th of april 1888 placed himself behind the desk at the University of Copenhagen, he had the honor of presenting the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) to a broader audience, for the first time in Europe. Since then the meeting between these two authors has been subject for intense debate. Here Brandes has been the center of a cultural debate between conservatives and radicals, which have tried to interpret his work in their own interest. Through a reevaluation of Brandes’ meeting with Nietzsche this paper tries to shed new light onto the picture of Brandes that has been drawn by the cultural debate.
