The Dionysian Vision of the World | Nietzsche
The Dionysian Vision of the World is a striking early essay by Friedrich Nietzsche that inaugurates his critique of representationism, with reference to Plato's philosophical view on the "real world" and the "apparent world". One of the most inexplicably neglected texts in Nietzsche's canon, this edition benefits from a fascinating critical introduction by Fred Ulfers (which is a valuable resource in its own right) and a vastly superior translation that provides a fresh look at the text, and equally, strives to retain the birdsong resonances between various root-words chattering back and forth behind the text's melody—making Nietzsche's writing itself an "incomparable harmony" that underscores the text's musical quality. The Dionysian Vision of the World must be at once both about music and itself musical.
