9789042005570: Thomas Mann and Friedrich Nietzsche.Eroticism, Death, Music, and Laughter.(Value Inquiry Book Series 85) (Central European Value Studies)

Traditional interpretations of Thomas Mann's relation to Nietzsche's writings plot out a simple relation of earlier adulation and later rejection. The book argues that Mann's disavowal of Nietzsche's influence was, in the words of T.J. Reed, a "necessary political act" when the repudiation of Nietzsche's more hysterical doctrines required such a response. Using a genealogical method, the book traces how Mann labors ambivalently under the shadow of Nietzsche's writings on his own political artistry through a detailed analysis of Mann's Death in Venice, Dr. Faustus, the Joseph tetralogy, and Confessions of Felix Krull, Confidence Man. Using the recurring Nietzschean themes of eroticism, death, music, and laughter as a guide, it arrives at a rough picture of how Mann both takes up and discontinues Nietzsche's poetic heritage. The book derives the vision of the interrelationships binding these four leitmotiv elements from DÜrer's magic square as depicted in Melancholia I. The link with DÜrer is far from arbitrary because Mann directly aligned Nietzschean insight with DÜrer's world of passion, sympathy with suffering, the macabre stench of rotting flesh, and Faustian melancholy.

She worked as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Instructor at the Yonsei University Foreign Language Center, Seoul, South Korea, 1991-1992; and was a University Lecturer in Zoology, Philosophy, and Astrophysics at the Ateneo de Manila and the San Carlos Pastoral Foundation, the Philippines, 1987-1989. For her Ph.D., she specialized in Social and Political Philosophy, with minors in Comparative Literature, and in Aesthetics, Critical Theory and Literary Criticism, from the Department of Philosophy, The Pennsylvania State University, 1993-1996. She finished her M.Phil. in History and Philosophy of Science as the Wolfson Prize Awardee in 1991, and Sir Run Run Shaw Scholar, from 1989-1991, at Cambridge University, England. She graduated with an M.A. with distinction in Philosophy, 1987-1989, and a B.S. in Biology, magna cum laude, 1983-1987, at the Ateneo de Manila, the Philippines. Picart's forthcoming books include Resentment and "the Feminine" in Nietzsche's Politico-Aesthetics, The Pennsylvania State University Press, and The Rebirths of Frankenstein, University of Texas Press.
