Wagner and Philosophy
A contribution to the literature of the 19th century culture, this is a study of the close links between Wagner and the philosophy of his age. The author communicates his enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, both Wagner and Schopenhauer with clarity. In consequence, the reader is left with an improved understanding of Wagner's music, the thought of his contemporaries, and, crucially, the part played by abstract reasoning on the composer's creative life.
