Example text

Here is where Nietzsche distinguishes himself from his mentor, Schopenhauer. Unlike the latter, for whom art was a means of pacifying and calming the Will, Nietzsche sees the great art of tragic drama as a willingness to accept the suffering of desire completely and still affirm the value of life. ' to life in the face of chaos and suffering. 52). One can see clearly now why Nietzsche was so critical of Socrates, as presented in the Platonic dialogues. Socrates is seen by Nietzsche as the prototype of the new man, who strives not to accept the temporal world but to escape from it.

The rejection of metaphysics brings with it an acceptance of aesthetics as a mode of truth. Indeed, for Nietzsche, one could say, as Keats did, 'Beauty is truth, truth, beauty, that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know'. It is only necessary to add that 'beauty' here does not mean formal perfection (as in the timeless figures of the Grecian urn, of which Keats speaks), but the temporality of the passing moment, which is valued just for its finitude, not in spite of it. Even the myth of the eternal return, the 'foundation' of Nietzsche's later thought, is understood by him not as absolute truth, but as a myth which can, at this point in history, give human beings the renewed power to choose life.

In addition, Plato resorts to mimesis at every turn in the presentation of his thinking. In the Republic, the construction of a just city in speech is itself a poetic act; such a city exists only in the imaginal realm. Moreover, metaphors abound in the dialogue; the very allegory of the cave, designed to be an attack on mimesis, uses concrete imagery to achieve its goal. Finally, the dialogue itself, like many of Plato's dialogues, ends not in logic but in myth, in this case a mythical account of the life after death for those who lead just and unjust lives, respectively.
