Nietzsche and the Becoming of Life

Tracy B. Strong

Fordham University Press

In the 1886 preface to the reissuing of The Birth of Tragedy, Nietzsche makes a claim that he looks at science from the optic of art and art from that of life. What does he mean by this? Does The Birth of Tragedy actually do that? Where, when and how? A subtext to my argument is that BT sets a problem to Nietzsche that occupies him for the rest of his career.
