The Greeks, Tragedy And Us (eBook)
Sobre o livro
We might think we are through with the past, but the past isn't through with us. Tragedy permits us to come face to face with what we do not know about ourselves but which make those selves who we are.
Tragedy, the Greeks and Us is a compelling examination of ancient Greek origins in the development and history of tragedy - a story that represents what we thought we knew about the poets, dramatists, and philosophers of Ancient Greece--and shows them to us in an unfamiliar, unexpected, and original light.
In a conflict between whether philosophy or poetry has the greatest claim to a proper understanding of the world, Critchley, a philosopher, is arguing against philosophy.
