ohH MY GOOOODDD EXISTENTIALISM IS THE COOLEST
”[Nietzsche] criticizes his own age (though his words apply equally to the present day) for being overly rationalistic, for assuming that it is best to treat existence and the world primarily as objects of knowledge. For Nietzsche, this stance makes life meaningless because knowledge and rationality in themselves do nothing to justify existence and the world.
Existence and the world become meaningful not as objects of knowledge but as artistic experiences. According to Nietzsche, art does not find a role in the larger context of life, but rather life takes on meaning and significance only as it is expressed in art.
By attacking Socrates, Nietzsche effectively attacks the entire tradition of Western philosophy.”
YES. YES YEYSEYSYEYSES WHEN Greek philosophers established rationality to be greater than emotions, math to be greater than art, they created a hierarchy that enabled white men to justify the oppression of so many different groups including women and people of color!!! IT PISSES ME OFF when my non-art friend says art is pointless because there is “not rational purpose” to art AND i can’t say everything wrong about this statement in one text post or it’ll become an essay but FUCK THAT YAH FEEEEL
THATS WHY WE NEED STEAM INSTEAD OF STEM IN OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM!!! ART HELPS KIDS LEARN TO THINK AND PROBLEM SOLVE IN CREATIVE WAYS CREATIVITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR INNOVATION NOT OBEDIENCE AND DIRECTION FOLLOWING
He isn’t saying we should abandon all rationality but to rely solely on rationality and to try to use it to define life and the world in a knowledgable way is DUMB and IMPOSSIBLE. LIFE AND THE UNIVERSE IS NOT DEFINABLE EVERYTHING IS ABSURDD AHH
