Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study examines the concept of metaphysics and aesthetics in Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy. The study is initiated with an elucidation of Schopenhauer’s metaphysics of will aiming towards a greater understanding of Nietzsche’s philosophy. This work analyses Nietzsche’s debut work Birth of Tragedy in order to illuminate the metaphysical and aesthetic implications. Furthermore the article “Verden set indefra : tragediens fødsel og den konstruktive æstetiske retfærdig- gørelse” by Isak Winkel Holm is analysed because it deals with the relationship between Nietzsche’s aesthetics and metaphysics. Moreover the project integrates a Heideggerian analysis of the later writings of Nietzsche in the search of coherence throughout Nietzsche’s body work. The study concludes that Nietzsche’s aesthetics involves a metaphysical dimension which also applies to Nietzsche’s later writings. Nietzsche doesn’t succeed escaping the idea of an absolute principle, however he does invert the platonic model of metaphysics. Finally the study concludes that existence exclusively can be be justified through an aesthethic perspective. The metaphysics of Nietzsche are expressed in his view on perspectivism, the relationship between the Apollonian and Dionysian forces, and through Schopenhauer’s concept of will.
