Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

From the very beginning of European philosophy in ancient Greece the relation between philosophy and arts has been highly problematic. On the one hand we find artist-philosophers like Plato or Nietzsche, whose philosophical investigations used artistic practices to demonstrate their thoughts; on the other hand philosophy has been extremly hostile to such practices, especially since Plato himself banned a wide range of arts from his ideal state ruled by philosophers.
Through his conception of the Künstlerphilosoph (artist-philosopher), Nietzsche probably questioned this platonic image of philosophy most profoundly, since this conceptual persona longs for a new kind of post-Socratic & philosophers to come who are ready to do philosophy in a post-Platonic manner by precisely crossing-over the disciplines of arts and science. Not to mind their gap, but in order to find a new (post-Platonic) relation between philosophy and arts that will produce a different kind of philosophy and new forms of philosophy-based art in the end. This lecture will present latest developments on this research field.
