Abstract [en]

This paper sets out to discuss and analyze Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) and Max Nordaus’ (1849-1923) critique of Richard Wagner (1813-1883). The research is conducted using a specific methodology, namely the methodology referred to as “The Cambridge School”, or “The Skinner Method”, after Quentin Skinner. It is therefore also a study of an applied methodology. More specifically this paper aims at understanding a narrow part of Nietzsche and Nordaus’ thinking, the time in which they are writing – which is fin-du-siècle – and a subject, which is still relevant today. Throughout this paper I try to argue that Nietzsche and Nordau had intentions in their critique of Wagner much wider than the person. Wagner was for them merely a symptom of the sickness in society. The connection between Nietzsche and Nordau in their critique has not been explored previously.
