|Nietzsche, Wagner, Europe|
2013, 360 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
Most of Nietzsche's works are concerned with the present state and future of European culture and humanity, thereby resisting the "nationalist nonsense." Prange analyzes the development of his ideal of European culture based on his musical aesthetics. It does so against the background of contemporary searches for a wider, cultural meaning beyond Europe's economic-political union. One focus is on Nietzsche's relation to Wagner's "German" music.
