Very illuminating exposition of Nietzsche's views on art, and how it's central to his philosophy in general. Young's ideas were helpful when I was writing my thesis, in particular the idea that religion, science, and art cannot change the meaningless nature of the world, but art may ease the ‘nausea and suicide’ (as explained in the Gay Science) of the realization of such truth.
