Nietzsche likens him to Thales, the ur-philosopher, who falls into a ditch when looking at the stars. At the same time though, it is his insistence on the relation 66 Lewis between aesthetics, philosophy, and education through the figure of dance that offers a unique corrective to Agamben’s own biopolitical project, for Agamben’s aesthetics, interestingly enough, does not link up with the crucial theme of education in any overt way. Tonality is examined as a paradigm of musical organization, and a theory of expression advanced that gives prominence to first‐person awareness and ‘knowing what it's like’, while acknowledging that expression and musical organization are interconnected.

Or as I have stated, "Econo-functional Aesthetic Balance" The great International Style Architect Mies Van der Rohe (1887-1969) said, "God is in the details." Of course, world leaders have to be graded on a curve. Not only is the broad field of philosophy today far too vast to be embraced by one mind, something similar is true even of many highly specialized subfields."
