World/thinking: Questions about the reality of the world in comparison to perception and interpretation by the mind are central to philosophy.

Friedrich Nietzsche on World/Thinking - Dictionary of Arguments

Danto III 48
World/Thinking/Nietzsche/Danto: According to Nietzsche, human thinking has always been Apollonian. However, reality is shapeless and Dionysian, which is why Nietzsche's problem asks itself the following question: whether one can arrive at a Dionysian language with which Dionysian thoughts are to be expressed.(1)
Danto III 51
Language/thinking/Nietzsche/Danto: Nietzsche draws his pessimistic conclusions from his epistemological analysis (like B. Russell later): according to them, our perceptions cannot be similar to their causes, so that the language we use (...) does not really describe the world.
