NIETZSCHE AND YOU
ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS
Nietzsche said that music was the most Dionysian of the arts. Why did he feel this way?
Explore the connection between music and emotion in your own life. For example: what songs do you listen to on long road trips? What music reminds you of incidents in your past? Do you tend to associate certain music with pleasant or unpleasant times? What kind of music do you play if you need to relax after a day of disappointment and frustration? What music can you hear over and over without tiring of it? Do you listen to music when you study? Why? Does it help or hinder your concentration? Single out two musical elements which best relate to your personality and style of life. Do you prefer solitude and silence or living in the midst of sounds?
