Nietzsche's Contribution Thought to the Emergence of the Concept of Modern Culture

Giuseppe Di Giacomo


The contribution of Nietzsches thought to the emergence of the concept of modern culture, art and the very concept of modernity, in a circular relationship of knowledge typologies, has been fundamental. His philosophy lies at the core of the new way in which music, theater and literature between the 19th and 20th centuries were reformulated as their finality. At the same time his reflections pointed to a new holistic way of understanding the meaning of being Human, in a tension towards annulling the boundaries between art and science, which is one of the distinguishing traits of the new culture in the transition between the 19th and 20th century.


Key words: Nietzsche - Fine degli Immutabili - Tragico - Immagine - Rappresentazione
