Umlauf der modernen Seele. Modelle von Subjektivität und Totalität bei Nietzsche und Goethe
Pages 91 - 114
Goethe as well as Nietzsche are of crucial significance for the modern discourse on subjectivity, in so far as they both design models of identity on a narrative and a philosophical level, which on the one hand reflect the modern phenomena of contingency and alienation, on the other, however, conserve or re-establish moments of totality and abundance. Modern artists such as Joseph Beuys and Jonathan Meese recur to this tradition of a modernity characterized by abundance in order to further develop it in the direction of a post-humanistic aesthetics of radical potentiality.
