19th Century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche advanced a dualistic view of the human condition by arguing that mankind was endowed with two types of spirits namely the Apollonian and the Dionysian. Apollo being the Greek god of intellect and enlightenment was responsible for the rational and thinking side of man. The cerebral aspects of our actions are therefore inspired by the spirit he termed as Apollonian.
