A compelling argument for the necessity for art in life, Nietzsche's first book is fuelled by his enthusiasms for Greek tragedy, for the philosophy of Schopenhauer and for the music of Wagner, to whom this work was dedicated. Nietzsche outlined a distinction between its two central forces: the Apolline, representing beauty and order, and the Dionysiac, a primal or ecstatic reaction to the sublime. He believed the combination of these states produced the highest forms of music and tragic drama, which not only reveal the truth about suffering in life, but also provide a consolation for it. Impassioned and exhilarating in its conviction, The Birth of Tragedy has become a key text in European culture and in literary criticism.

In this erudite and wide-ranging discussion of postmodernism and romanticism in twentieth-century art and philosophy, Jos de Mul sheds a fascinating light on the ambivalent character of our present culture, which oscillates between modern enthusiasm and postmodern irony. Along the way, he engages the work of such thinkers as Nietzsche, Freud, Heidegger, Habermas, Lacan, Barthes, and Derrida; visual artists Magritte and Stella; poets George and Coleridge; and composers Schönberg, Cage, and Reich, among others, providing a sort of intellectual history of Romantic, Modernist, and Postmodernist “tempers.”

The essays that Jill Stauffer and Bettina Bergo collect in this volume locate multiple affinities between the philosophies of Nietzsche and Levinas. Both philosophers question the nature of subjectivity and the meaning of responsibility after the "death of God." While Nietzsche poses the dilemmas of a self without a ground and of ethics at a time of cultural upheaval and demystification, Levinas wrestles with subjectivity and the sheer possibility of ethics after the Shoah. Both argue that goodness exists independently of calculative reason for Nietzsche, goodness arises in a creative act moving beyond reaction and ressentiment; Levinas argues that goodness occurs in a spontaneous response to another person. In a world at once without God and haunted by multiple divinities, Nietzsche and Levinas reject transcendental foundations for politics and work toward an alternative vision encompassing a positive sense of creation, a complex fraternity or friendship, and rival notions of responsibility. Stauffer and Bergo group arguments around the following debates, which are far from settled: What is the reevaluation of ethics (and life) that Nietzsche and Levinas propose, and what does this imply for politics and sociality? What is a human subject and what are substance, permanence, causality, and identity, whether social or ethical in the wake of the demise of God as the highest being and the foundation of what is stable in existence? Finally, how can a "God" still inhabit philosophy, and what sort of name is this in the thought of Nietzsche and Levinas?

In this fascinating volume, acclaimed theatre historian Erika Fischer-Lichte reflects on the role and meaning accorded to the theme of sacrifice in Western cultures as mirrored in particular fusions of theatre and ritual. Theatre, Sacrifice, Ritual presents a radical re-definition of ritual theatre through analysis of performances as diverse as: Max Reinhardt's new people's theatre the mass spectacles of post-revolutionary Russia American Zionist pageants the Olympic Games. In offering both a performative and a semiotic analysis of such performances, Fischer-Lichte expertly demonstrates how theatre and ritual are fused in order to tackle the problem of community-building in societies characterised by loss of solidarity and disintegration, and exposes the provocative connection between the utopian visions of community they suggest, and the notion of sacrifice. This innovative study of twentieth-century performative culture boldly examines the complexities of political theatre, propaganda and manipulation of the masses, and offers a revolutionary approach to the study of theatre and performance history.

Recent years have seen an increase of interest in classicism and the reception and survival of antiquity. Classical Reception Studies is a rapidly developing field of research and teaching, and a growing number of new scholars are investigating issues of reception of classical texts, ideas, performance, and material culture across different cultural contexts and in different media. This volume adds new perspectives in this growing field of scholarship. This collection of essays explores the uses of the past from a wide range of perspectives. The papers are drawn from a spectrum of cultures and chronological periods; from medieval to modern times, from Italian to Byzantine, from French to British. The characters involved in each case study accessed the past through different means, employing varying combinations of texts, oral traditions, iconographic representations, and visible remains of the landscape. It is a snapshot of a field in movement, illustrative of current directions and hopeful of producing new ones. The legacy of antiquity is omnipresent, and is as multifaceted as suggested by the wide range of the papers. This volume presents new perspectives, dealing with ever-elusive enigmas and opening the way for future research and investigation to all those who seek to explore the constant fascination with the antique.

Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian

In this well-written work, the author argues that the present situation regarding the music of the classical tradition is fundamentally untenable. While change is, of course, inevitable, the author posits that teachers of the classical music tradition, nonetheless, have a moral responsibility to do as much as possible to advocate and work toward goals that will hasten and most positively influence the direction of change. The author believes that the present relationship between the music of the Western classical tradition and the culture of the present is an unhealthy one. The music of dead composers comprises the overwhelming preponderance of music heard today, especially in the larger venues such as symphony halls and opera houses. Specifically, the author argues that we must promote and provide for (at least) an equal place in our teaching, recordings, and performances for the music of composers who are living at the time we undertake these activities.

Psychoanalytic Listening to the Unsaid Through the Medium of Art

Psychoanalysis has continuously been applied to the exploration of creativity and artistic genius, but up to now, this has not produced its own systematic body of knowledge. The traditional psychoanalytic approach to art is to attempt to decode it, in order to capture its hidden meaning. But in this book, the author explains that it is through the arts that we discover important aspects of ourselves. Antonio Di Benedetto argues for a completely new approach. By employing analytic receptivity to listen to the aesthetic object and what it has to say, art becomes the interpretative key instead. Furthermore, the author shows how the arts can inspire psychoanalysis, helping it to recover its intuitive and poetic roots and providing forms, images and sounds to best represent fleeting introspective moments and pre-verbal insight. To illustrate these pre-symbolic aspects of introspection, the author examines well-known aesthetic masterpieces: the frescoes of the Loggia of Psyche in Rome, Mozartâ??s The Magic Flute, and Six Characters in Search of an Author, by L. Pirandello. Of these, he considers music to be the artistic form best suited to refine the analystâ??s capacity to listen to the affective component of unconscious communication.

What’s Love Got to Do with It: Die Lebensgeschichte einer der größten Pop-Ikonen unserer Zeit „Liebe hat mein Leben gerettet. Davon will ich erzählen.“ Tina Turner, die Königin des Rock ’n‘ Roll, wird bald 80 Jahre alt. Unter dem Eindruck einer lebensbedrohlichen Erkrankung, die sie aufgrund einer wunderbaren Wendung überwinden konnte, schildert sie erstmals ihre „ganze Geschichte“, wie sie sagt. Private Dancer, Simply the Best, I Can’t Stand the Rain – jeder, der Tina Turners Musik hört, ahnt etwas von ihrer Energie, ihrem Lebenswillen und nie versiegendem Mut, die sie aus der Enge der Kindheit in Tennessee auf die Bühnen der Welt brachten. Mit ihrem Ehemann Erwin Bach durfte sie schließlich auch das lang ersehnte persönliche Glück erleben. „My Love Story“ ist eine Liebeserklärung an das Leben und die zutiefst bewegende und inspirierende Überlebensgeschichte einer starken Frau. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche Abbildungen, darunter viele bisher unveröffentlichte aus Privatbesitz.
