By Brayton Polka

Modernity among Wagner and Nietzsche analyzes the operas and writings of Wagner with the intention to turn out that the tips on which they're established contradict and falsify the values which are primary to modernity. This e-book additionally analyzes the guidelines which are relevant to the philosophy of Nietzsche, demonstrating that the values at the foundation of which he breaks with Wagner and repudiates their universal mentor, Schopenhauer, are these basic to modernity. Brayton Polka uses the serious contrast that Kierkegaard attracts among Christianity and Christendom. Christianity represents what Nietzsche calls the religion that's presupposed in unconditionally prepared the reality in asserting certain to existence. Christendom, against this, represents the undesirable religion of nihilism in announcing no to existence. Polka then indicates that Wagner, in following Schopenhauer, represents Christendom with the demonstration in his operas that lifestyles is not anything yet demise and loss of life is not anything yet lifestyles. In different phrases, the aim of the need for Wagner is to annihilate the need, because it is simply in and during loss of life that people are liberated from existence as willfully sinful. Nietzsche, against this, is in step with the biblical idea that life is produced from not anything, from not anything that's not made within the photograph of God, that any declare that the need can won't to will is contradictory and for this reason fake. For to not will is, honestly, nonetheless to will not anything. there's then, Nietzsche indicates, no get away from the need. both humans will the reality in asserting convinced to existence as made out of not anything, or in actually prepared not anything, they are saying no to lifestyles in worshiping the God of Christendom who's dead.
