Starting from the analysis of the critic which Nietzsche addresses to Wagner in his last texts, the author investigates the Nietzschean conception of décadence. Examining its artistic, religious, and philosophical aspects, he intends to show its close relationship to physiology.
Este artigo procura discutir como Nietzsche expõe suas idéias e como essa forma de exposição foi e é um "desafio" para seus intérpretes. A questão central é a de saber se se trata de uma filosofia incoerente, contraditória, ou de uma filosofia que vive de seus próprios conflitos e tensões internas.
A partir de la reprise par Nietzsche des analyses de Paul Bourget dans les Essais de psychologie contemporaine, l'auteur analyse la notion de décadence telle qu'elle s'applique, selon Nietzsche, dans l'art conçu d'un point de vue psychologique et physiologique. De l'œuvre de Wagner, envisagée physiologiquement dans Le cas Wagner, l'analyse de Nietzsche glisse vers la personne du Maître. L'analyse de cette notion capitale reliée à certaines problématiques centrales de l'œuvre permet de préciser la pensée du dernier Nietzsche. Starting from Nietzsche's (...) rehandling Paul Bourget's analyses in the Essais de psychologie contemporaine, the author analyzes the concept of decadence as applied, according to Nietzsche, to art conceived from a psychological and physiological point of view. From Wagner's work, studied physiologically in The Wagner Case, Nietzsche's analysis slides towards the character and personality of the Master. The analysis of this major notion, linked as it is to some very essential problematics inherent to the work, enables one to study much more precisely the thought of the late Nietzsche. (shrink)
II est bien connu que Nietzsche pense par oppositions. II y a des oppositions dans la logique parce que celle-ci est le fruit d'une evolution. Mais il y a egalement une opposition immanente au monde de la realite. Enfin, la volonte de puissance elle-meme comport e des oppositions. It is well known that Nietzsche thinks through oppositions. There are indeed oppositions in his logic since the latter is the consequence of evolution. But there's also an immanent opposition to the world (...) of reality. Finally, willpower itself is comprised of oppositions. (shrink)
