Ask for the tragic and Europe will answer. Leaving behind the philosophers’ enthusiasm of the nineteenth century, ‘tragedy’ and ‘the tragic’ now seem little more than vague containers. However, it appears that we still discover a tragic essence in our personal lives. This book wants to open a contemporary philosophical perspective on the tragic.
