Nietzsche: Philosophy and the Arts

Nietzsche: Philosophy and the Arts

Edited by Salim Kemal, Ivan Gaskell and Daniel W. Conway

Nietzsche's writings have shaped much contemporary reflection on the relation between philosophy and art. This book brings together a number of distinguished contributors to examine his aesthetic account of the origins and ends of philosophy. They discuss the transformative power which Nietzsche ascribes to aesthetic activity, including his aesthetic justification of existence and its fusion of social and personal existence, and they investigate his experiments with an 'aesthetic politics' and a politicization of aesthetics. Together their essays set out the ground for future debate about the inter-relation between art, philosophy, and value.
