CASTILLA CEREZO, Antonio. "The Artifice of the Alchemists" Notes on The Gay Science, by Nietzsche. Valenciana [online]. 2017, vol.10, n.19, pp.235-253. ISSN 2007-2538.

Assuming, on the one hand, that as said Giorgio Colli The Gay Science is the central moment of Nietzsche's life and, secondly, that in this book the German philosopher is particularly careful with the choice of titles, this article analyzes the relationship in that work between the terms that implicitly links the title of it, namely science and joy. For this purpose uses, in addition to certain strategic points in the text published by Nietzsche, various passages from his correspondence and his posthumous writings, as well as the contributions of later thinkers (such as Michel Foucault or the same Giorgio Colli) that reflected on said connection.

Keywords : Nietzsche; Science; Joy; Foucault; Colli.
