Amor Fati -- Affirmation, Celebration, Festivity, Joy and Praise

Amor fati: that shall henceforth be my love! I do not want to wage war against the ugly. I do not want to accuse—I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Let looking away be my only denial! And all in all and on the whole: I want someday to be purely and simply a Yes-sayer! –Nietzsche

After several issues dedicated to trauma, suffering and terror, POIESIS takes up Nietzsche’s call for a “Yea-saying” philosophy of life. How can we find joy and enjoyment in everyday life and in the arts? Can we get beyond the media-driven conception of happiness as endless consumption and reclaim a non-ideological attitude of affirmation towards existence? What would this mean for the critique of ideology? What implications would it have for therapeutic and social change? What would be an aesthetics of praise?

We hope that readers will be willing to risk the foolishness of affirmative thinking in the face of all catastrophe and join us in saying, “Yea!”
