à l’induction logique, mais encore à los angeles certitude immédiate de cette pensée : que l’évolution innovative de l’art
est le résultat du double caractère de l’esprit apollinien et de l’esprit dionysien, de los angeles même manière que los angeles
dualité des sexes engendre los angeles vie au milieu de luttes perpétuelles et par des rapprochements seulement périodiques.
Ces noms, nous les empruntons aux Grecs qui ont rendu intelligible au penseur le sens occulte et profond de leur
conception de l’art, non pas au moyen de notions, mais à l’aide des figures nettement significatives du monde de
leurs dieux. C’est à leurs deux divinités des arts, Apollon et Dionysos, que se rattache notre moral sense de
l’extraordinaire antagonisme, tant d’origine que de fins, qui exista dans le monde grec entre l’art plastique
apollinien et l’art dénué de formes, l. a. musique, l’art de Dionysos...

Now, faraway from being marginalized, the connection among religion and society has moved to the heart of politics and worldwide dialog.

It examines mankind's ideals no longer from the point of view of institutional religions yet in line with how shared narratives have formed societies--and what occurs while varied narratives run up opposed to one another. As he did in A background of the realm in a hundred Objects and Germany: stories of a Nation, MacGregor brilliantly combines gadgets, areas, and concepts to envision and, finally, remove darkness from those urgent modern concerns.
