AMND12 Apollonian and Dionysian

  1. 1. The Apollonian and Dionysian Nietzsche by Iván Blanco
  2. 2. Index 1. The Gods 5.Applied to AMSND 2.The Symbols 6.Conclusion 3.The Characters 7.Personal assessment 4.Nietzsche and the Apollonian and Dionysian
  3. 3. The Apollonian Apollo: The God of sudden death, healing, beauty and reason. Dionysius: The God of wine, madness and trance The Dionysian
  4. 4. The Apollonian It represents the law, the order, the city of Athens The Dionysian It represents the anarchy, chaos, the wood.
  5. 5. The Apollonian Apollonian characters: Theseus and Egeus. The Dionysian Dionysian characters: The fairies and Hypolitta.
  6. 6. Nietzsche: The Apollonian and the Dionysian Nietzsche in his work the birth of tragedy said that the magnificence of the Ancient Greeks took place before Plato and Socrates, when they had their rational representation but also a representation of chaos and instinct, the Apollonian and the Dionysian; he said that the Greek started to think more of the Apollonian “mind” and left the Dionysian aside. He said that we need our Apollonian and Dionysian version working together, chaos and rational mind.
  7. 7. Applied to A Midsummer Night’s Dream In AMSND we can see that the problems start in the “Apollonian symbols” of the book: Athens and the day, as well as in the representation of the Apollonian. These problems can be solved in the “Dionysian symbols” of the book: the wood and the night. So we can say that the problems start because of our rational mind and they get solved by our instinct.
  8. 8. Conclusion We can say that Shakespeare starts to talk about the Apollonian and Dionysian 300 years before the theory of Nietzsche, so Shakespeare was a really philosophical writer.
  9. 9. Personal Assessment I think the people usually think that our apollonian side is more important than our dionysian one, because the apollonian represents the reason and the dionysian the chaos but we sometimes need our instinct to solve some of our problems like dreams sometimes help use to choose one option when we don't know what we are going to choose. So we need our two sides to have a balanced life.
