星期五的音樂課 20091002 以勇氣擁抱命運 (Amor fati)


這幾天工作太忙,現在才補上星期五的音樂課的畫。

上星期五的音樂課有很多同學到來參加,龔老師特別請了Dr. Kui主講「尼采的悲劇和音樂」 "Nietzsche on Tragedy and Music",當中包括:

- The Birth of Tragedy from the spirit of music
- Apollo and Dionysus
- Schopenhauer's Philosophy of Music
- Nietzsche on Wagner

其實我對尼采(Nietzsche)、叔本華(Schopenhauer)和華格納(Wagner)全都不太熟悉。課堂上滲及深入的哲理講解,我有很多地方也不算明白,但我這個沒做準備功課的懶學生只是想來聽課,課後有時間查書後再問也不遲,我不想在課堂中問些很蠢又沒常識的問題。

我很喜歡Dr. Kui影印了其中幾頁的這個選段:
"Our evaluation of things so long as we are firmly under the spell of art is different, as it is in a dream: that which, while the spell lasts, we consider so much worth striving for that we ally ourselves with the hero when he prefer to die rather than renounce it - in real life this is seldom of the same value or worthy of the same degree of effort: that is precisely why art is the activity of man in repose. The struggles it depicts are simplifications of the real struggles of life; its problems are abbreviations of the endlessly complex calculus of human action and desire. But the greatness and indispensability of art lie precisely in its being able to produce the appearance of a simpler world, a shorter solution of the riddle of life....

The individual must be consecrated to something higher than himself - that is the meaning of tragedy; he must be free of the terrible anxiety which death and time evoke in the individual: for at any moment, in the briefest atom of his life’s course, he may encounter something holy that endlessly outweighs all his struggle and all his distress - this is what it means to have a sense for the tragic; ..."


J 後來才到,我多畫了一張,讓她常常可以成為我畫中的主角。

ps.今天,讓我也像Bizet 寫的Carmen一樣拿出勇氣來擁抱命運。

WOW, 你在上的這個課堂好像很有趣, 是一個完整的課程還是什麼? 課程的名字可以告訴我嗎?

我在想, 可以勇敢地擁抱命運的人, 首先是否都要受過一大輪折磨的?

你若喜歡這個課堂可以去找尼采那本書看。
這個課堂沒有課程, 只是長輩朋友的分享 ^_^ 不好意思, 不能報名呢.

我盡量在這裡分享吧 ^_^

可以"勇敢地擁抱命運的人"的人不一定要受過折磨,勇氣是不需要被折磨才擁有,受過很多折的人也未必有勇氣。

簡單來說, 愛折磨和有勇氣是沒有因果關係的二碼子事 ^_^
