Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "The Birth of Tragedy" argues the importance of the tension between what Nietzsche called Apollonian and Dionysian forces. These contrasting forces enable a work of art to reveal the truth about human existence in such a way that we are able to bear the weight of its tragic wisdom. Nietzsche boldly combines aesthetics and psychology in a creative meditation on the sources of artistic inspiration. He also addresses the problem of nihilism in modern culture. "The Birth of Tragedy" offers an excellent point of entry into Nietzsche's corpus.
