" When Friedrich Nietzsche looked for a practice which might dismantle the opposition between freedom and determinism, it was to the expereience of making art that he turned, which for the artist feels not only free and necessary, creative and constrained, but each of these in terms of the other, and so appears to press there rather tattered old polarities to the point of undecidability."
Fascinating observation of how it feels when you're an artistic type, from Terry Eagleton in Ideas of Culture - he da man, wid a lotta base and superstructure, innit. Wicked.
