In ancient Greece, Dionysus occupied an ambivalent role among the Greek divinities. He embodied reconciliation and collective cohesion but also the ecstasy that made human beings lose their individual conscience, bringing them closer to the great mystery of the world. Between the masculine and the feminine, the human and the divine, the crucial role of Dionysus is also shaped in its modern reception, especially since Nietzsche. But the multifaceted god often resists the many rationalisations, ancient and modern, that have been attempted to make of him. Therefore, this book sets out to investigate Dionysus, through Ariadne, not only through his cultural-historical study, but especially in what is relevant for the man of today, through his influence on literature, art and thought.
