Document Summary

English 2200: a history of theory and criticism. 1869: receives doctorate in philology (language formation) from u. of leipzig. Catharsis: purging of emotions/dealing with and getting rid of negative emotions. We try to keep tragedy out of our own lives, so we turn to tragedy so that we can experience those emotions through a novel/movie. We want to gain insight from human experiences, even tragic ones. We feel just as deeply about movies like this even though it"s hard to relate to for most of us. The goal of aristotelian tragedy = truth and insight. Some of nietzsche"s works were required nazi readings during wwii. He wasn"t anti- semitic, but his sister was, and after his death she worked to make sure that the nazi"s took on some of nietzsche"s thoughts as their own. It took a long time after wwii for it to become acceptable to talk about nietzsche. He loved art, held it in highest regard.
