The Dionysian Vision of the World

by Nietzsche

A striking early essay that inaugerates Nietzsche’s critique of representationism, with reference to Plato’s philosophical view of the “real” and “apparent” worlds. One of the most inexplicably neglected texts of his, this edition benefits from a fascinating critical introduction by Fred Ulfers (a valuable writing in its own right), and a superior translation that provides a fresh look, while retaining the birdsong resonances between various root words chattering behind the text’s melody—this text is at once about music, and musical itself.
