Summary
"Few musical works loom as large in Western culture as Richard Wagner's four-part Ring of the Nibelungs. In Finding an Ending, two eminent philosophers, Philip Kitcher and Richard Schacht, offer art look at this greatest of Wagner's achievements, focusing on its far-reaching and subtle exploration of problems of meanings and endings in this life and world."--Jacket
