Wagner contra Nietzsche

(p.359) Epilogue
Beyond Reason

Karol Berger

University of California Press

The Epilogue returns to the philosophical issues raised in the Prologue, but narrows the focus to a single relationship, that of Richard Wagner with his most important critic, Friedrich Nietzsche. The chapter describes the history of the relationship between the two, analyzes the philosopher’s essential objections against the composer, evaluates their validity, and suggests how Wagner’s works might defend themselves against Nietzsche’s strictures.

Keywords:   Christianity, decadence, form, Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Wagner
