|Art: according to the traditional conception, art is a social sphere that is not directly focused on the maintenance of life functions. For this reason it opens up a certain freedom and possibility of knowledge. In the modern age, the idea of the evading of art has evolved in the face of a widespread through-organization of more and more areas of life. This development can lead to an ever-barred understanding ("hermetics"). See also aesthetics, works of art, critique, society, history, enlightenment, recognition._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Friedrich Nietzsche on Art - Dictionary of Arguments
Ries II 121
Art/Nietzsche: "Art is worth more than truth". The will to appearance, to illusion, to deception, to become and to change is more profound.
Pfotenhauer IV 37
Art/Justification/Life/Nietzsche: Nietzsche is concerned with a justification of existence in the medium of art (F. Nietzsche, Die Geburt der Tragödie, KGW VI, Chapter 5. p. 43).
Danto III 273
Art/Science/Religion/Philosophy/Power/Nietzsche/Danto: According to Nietzsche, we should recognize that we are not strictly different from what we do. We are the will to power, it is the will to impose our forces externally, and interpreting is a mode of imposing. Interpreting is then not something we do, but what we are: we live our philosophies, we do not just have them. (F. Nietzsche: Nachlass, Berlin 1999, p. 487.)_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
