Plato against Homer: art against asceticism in Toward the genealogy of morals
Rodrigo Cumpre Rabelo∗
Abstract:
This article aims to provide some indications about the function of Nietzsche’s idea of
art, namely in the context of his critique of asceticism, idea which is built in a symbiosis
with the idea of a gay science, a relation which I also indicate within my text. I start off
from the opposition between Homer and Plato, opposition categorically affirmed by
Nietzsche from the point of view of a revaluation of all values, in the Third Inquire of
"Toward the genealogy of morals" (1887).
Keywords: Art; Asceticism; Gay science; Truth.
