Truth and Art from Nietzsche's perspective

Keywords: Truth-Art-Will to Power-Life-Interpretation


This article aims to analyze Nietzsche's vision of the relationship between Truth and Art by focusing on how they are connected. Starting by questioning traditional perceptions of "truth", explaining its nihilistic traits and its antagonism to life, and critiquing the Platonic conception that diminishes the importance of art on the grounds of its connection with the sensible. Culminating in highlighting the aesthetic characteristic of the world from the perspective of an interpretative and vital space. Where the will to power is the source of all "meaning and value." Ending with exploring the fundamental role of tragic art in affirming life as it appears. An artwork is nothing but the mirror in which life itself is seen, and what is seen is that illusion and falsification are perspectival necessities for living beings preoccupied with preserving their survival, and that truths are nothing but beneficial illusions.
