Wagner by Michael Tanner( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and Hungarian and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whilst no one would dispute Wagner's ranking amongst the most significant composers in the history of Western music, his works have been more fiercely attacked than those of any other composer. A racist, womaniser, megalomaniac and anti-Semite, Wagner's personal 'defects' have provoked, and continue to provoke, intense hostility which has translated into a mistrust and abhorrence of his music. In this emphatic, lucid book Michael Tanner discusses why people feel so passionately for or against Wagner, in a way that they don't about other artists with equally lamentable personal traits. He lays out the various arguments made by Wagner's detractors and admirers, and challenges most of them. Tanner's fascination for the relationship between music, text and plot generates an illuminating discussion of the operas, in which he persuades us to see many of Wagner's best-known works afresh - The Ring, Tristan und Isolde, Parsifal. He refrains from lengthy and detailed musical examination, giving instead, passionate and unconventional analyses which are accessible to all lovers of music, be they listeners or performers.--From publisher's description
Beyond good and evil : prelude to a philosophy of the future by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the French Revolution the influence of woman in Europe has DECLINED in proportion as she has increased her rights and claims; and the "emancipation of woman," insofar as it is desired and demanded by women themselves (and not only by masculine shallow-pates), thus proves to be a remarkable symptom of the increased weakening and deadening of the most womanly instincts
Schopenhauer by Michael Tanner( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schopenhauer hymned the miseries of human existence with a joylessness that was little short of lyrical. Yet he thrilled to the beauties of music and art. Tanner teases out the difficulties and unpicks the paradoxes to reveal the exhilarating coherence beneath
The birth of tragedy and the genealogy of morals by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Birth of Tragedy Nietzsche expounds on the origins of Greek tragedy and its relevance to the German culture of its time. He declares it to be the expression of a culture which has achieved a delicate but powerful balance between Dionysian insight into the chaos and suffering which underlies all existence and the discipline and clarity of rational Apollonian form. In order to promote a return to these values, Nietzsche critiques complacent rationalism of late nineteenth-century German culture and makes an impassioned plea for the regenerative potential of the music of Wagner. A wide ranging discussion of the nature of art, science, and religion, The Birth of Tragedy's argument raises important questions about the problematic nature of cultural origins which are still valid today

Daybreak : thoughts on the prejudices of morality by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daybreak marks the arrival of Nietzsche's 'mature' philosophy and is indispensable for an understanding of his critique of morality and 'revaluation of all values'. This volume presents the distinguished translation by R.J. Hollingdale, with a new introduction that argues for a dramatic change in Nietzsche's views from Human, All Too Human to Daybreak, and shows how this change, in turn, presages the main themes of Nietzsche's later and better-known works such as On the Genealogy of Morality. The main themes of Daybreak are located in their intellectual and philosophical contexts: in Nietzsche's training as a classical philologist and his fascination with the Sophists and Thucydides; in the moral philosophies of Kant and Schopenhauer, which are the central foci of Nietzsche's critique of morality; and in the German Materialist movement of the 1850s and after, which shaped Nietzsche's conception of persons. The edition is completed by a chronology, notes and a guide to further reading. -- Back cover

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality, which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique, in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the contextual nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual
