The Questor Hero

Gustav Mahler’s Ultimate Questions

The 20th Nexus Conference is devoted to Mahler’s heritage. Mahler was a God-seeker. We live after the death of God, in a godless world. What are the political, moral, and cultural consequences of that? Why did Mahler search for beauty, and how did he express this? How can we explain that on the one hand, Mahler is one of the great poets of suffering and of the tragedy of existence, and that on the other hand, he wrote such beautiful music? Does our longing for transcendental, absolute values offer a way out of the human tragedy, or is that a dangerous illusion?
