Nietzsche had a particular interest in the relationship between art and life, and in the role that art can play in discharging the principal tasks he set himself as a philosopher--to identify the conditions of the affirmation of life, cultural renewal, and exemplary human living. This volume presents a collection of new essays that engage with Nietzsche's writings on art and the aesthetic from this practical-existential perspective. They demonstrate thatunderstanding his engagement with art is essential for understanding his philosophy.
