An Invitation to Membership

For current information, please visit

Membership in the Society is open to all with a serious interest in Nietzsche.

Many members are college and university teachers, graduate students, or independent scholars from North America and elsewhere. Specialization in Nietzsche studies is not a condition of membership. Membership in good standing involves the payment of modest annual dues.

Membership Annual Dues Categories:

  • Group I (Employed): $20
  • Group II (Student, Retired, or Unemployed): $10


The use of browsers Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is strongly recommended for submitting online payment. If you prefer to mail your dues by check or money order, please do so to the following address:

        North American Nietzsche Society

        c/o Department of Philosophy, Stanford University

        450 Serra Mall, Building 90

        Stanford, CA 94305

Note: Donations in excess of membership dues are always welcome, and can be made by check mailed to the same address.

For more information or if you have questions or problems, e-mail NANS Assistant Justin Remhof.


The Journal of Nietzsche Studies (JNS)

NANS has a publication agreement with the Journal of Nietzsche Studies (JNS), published by The Pennsylvania State University Press (PSUP).  The PSUP publishes regular NANS issues containing papers presented on NANS programs at group meetings of the American Philosophical Association and elsewhere.  To receive these issues, NANS members must individually subscribe to JNS.  You must directly do so through PSUP.  NANS strongly encourages all members to subscribe.

We are pleased to report that PSUP has agreed to offer NANS members the opportunity to subscribe to JNS at a 30% discount.  We hope that you will avail yourself of this opportunity.  Only members in good standing (whose dues are current) are eligible to receive this membership benefit.

Members may order the Journal of Nietzsche Studies at the NANS rate via:

  1. The Journal of Nietzsche Studies web form

  2. Email at; or

  3. Phone at (800) 548-1784

Note: Please make sure to identiy yourself as a NANS member at the time of subscription.  The NANS office provides PSUP with the names of members in good standing.
