Professor of German

Office: HUM 206


Walter Stewart, Ph.D., UCLA, publishes widely in a number of subjects such as Goethe's works, American and European Folklore, and structuralism with a number of reviews, refereed articles, and over a half-dozen books to his name. He has served as the bibliographer for Dissertaton titles on Goethe and his works for the Goethe Society of North America for the last twenty-five years.

In addition to teaching courses in German, Philosophy, Egyptology, and Film Studies, he also has spent the last two decades teaching and focusing on international political issues and has presented lectures on International Relations at Oxford University's prestigious Union Hall.

Among his most recent publications are: Tesla, a novel concerning the famous inventor; German in Action a German language text; and Nietzsche - My Sister and I: A Critical Study, an in-depth analysis of the orphaned and often disputed work in the Nietzsche corpus.

His most recent book, Friedrich Nietzsche - My Sister and I: Investigation, Analysis, Interpretation is the second volume in his work on Nietzsche's My Sister and I.

Dr. Stewart has specialized in the philosophy of Nietzsche for some 30 years and even began research on the last two books while staying as a guest at the Nietzsche Archives in Weimar. Both books represent ground-breaking investigations of international importance in Nietzsche scholarship.

Dr. Stewart also wrote, produced, and directed a feature film, Sweet Deadly Dreams that featured top-notch actors including academy-award nominees and winners which gained him recognition and Best Director and Best Film accolades at a number of film festivals here and abroad.
