    These ideas later reappeared in physics in the laws of the conservation of matter and energy. He would write soon after, ‘The world can only be justified as an aesthetic phenomenon.’ (Birth of Tragedy) For Nietzsche, the world is the incessant, tragic, vanishing of the Apollonian image as the makeshift expression of the tragic eruption of the Dionysian self, and as with Greek Tragedy, and for most contemporary philosophy, any attempt to flee from this basic state of finitude, as with the Ideas, would be a denial of affirmation, it would be no better than bad comedy or a farce.

    Whether such theories can cast light on the mysterious unity between the intellectual and the sensory that we observe in aesthetic experience remains doubtful. The colours of the picture are amazing, the alignment is perfect and the sunset just seems to be magnificant. Written by a strong, international line-up of scholars and artists, Reverberations looks to energize this field of study and initiate debates for years to come. “Michael Goddard, Benjamin Halligan, and Paul Hegarty are three exceptional individuals ... [Reverberations] contains material of interest even to conservative musicologists, although its primary importance lies in its various attempts to theorize noise-and noise both as a category in and of itself, and in terms of its relationships to a great many fields of inquiry and expression ...

    Thus Jonathan Edwards was strongly influenced by the empiricist views of Locke, while Ralph Waldo Emerson was an ardent admirer of Thomas Carlyle. Philosophy considers extremely general and ‘ultimate’ problems, such as the nature of reality, the purpose of human existence, and the basis of knowledge.

Doing another take would defeat the purpose of the Based style’s aesthetic of chance, thus setting up a procedural pattern that buoys any supposed shortcoming in content. Topics include the definition of art, representation, expression, metaphor, and taste. Horwitz views Bhabha's hybrid subject as repeating, ironically, the "ontological idealism" of I.
