Socrates/NietzscheVsSocrates/Nietzsche/Danto: Not only has Socrates caused the decline of the Greek tragedy for Nietzsche, it also marks a turning point in the history of humanity. Both are inseparable. The tragic art of Attica was a reaction to the pessimistic conception of nature, which the Greeks originally represented and by means of which they were able to transform their fears, ie. could live at all. Curiously enough, Socrates pursued the same goal or at least contributed to its achievement. The view goes back to him that the universe is completely understandable. (F. Nietzsche. Die Geburt der Tragödie, 4, KGW III, p. 95).
Rationality/Nietzsche: Nietzsche does not speak out against rationality at any point.
Danto III 78
It is only directed against Socrates' limited understanding of reason (or science and logic): against the view it would show the only way to achieve human performance.

Art/Nietzsche/Danto: Nietzsche later, however, represents the mistrust towards the artist, which Nietzsche had criticized in Socrates, himself. (F. Nietzsche, Menschliches, Allzumenschliches, KGW IV, 2 p. 144)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
