Abstract

This conclusion explores the importance of the book in context of the extant literature that has tried to either link Brecht and theatre to philosophy or seal them off from each other entirely. It posits the existence of a false dichotomy between theatre and philosophy that can be traced back to Aristotle and argues that Brecht can and needs to be re-functionalized today so he can become a model figure used to cleave the theatre/ philosophy divide.
