    EBOOK Tragedy the Greeks and Us Critchley's insight is essentially that tragedy and philosophy take fundamentally opposite world views in that philosophy going back to Socrates principally attempts to unify while tragedy embraces uncertainty and dualities without attempting to resolve them He argues that for philosophy and this is a somewhat overly broad generalization but not necessarily unfairly the fundamental disciplinary assumption is that there is some k

Tragedy the Greeks and Us

Tragedy the Greeks and Us Free download ¹ 4 review Tragedy the Greeks and Us From the curator of The New York Times's The Stone a provocative and timely exploration into tragedy how it articulates conflicts and contradiction that we need to address in order to better understand the world we live in We might think w In ancient times the book that introduced me to the grand subject of Sophocles et al was George Steiner s The Death of Tragedy as sonorous and epic as its subject and which in turn set loose an avalanche of books eager to support or vigorously dissent from his argument After that sturm und drang in the critical teapot now long forgotten comes Simon Critchley s eccentric meditation less grand and for me much interesting in its variety of perspective positions and reversals and pithy pronouncements that extend as another reviewer noted even unto the usually arid Acknowledgments at the end of the book which is as good a place as any to begin uoting his thoughts I am engaging with tragedy in order to aim at a certain style of philosophy whose origins I trace to Plato and Aristotle I have come to find the metaphysical and moral assumptions to which that style is linked uestionable It is not that this this book is anti philosophical Far from it It is rather that tragedy offers another way of thinking and experiencing a dialectical modality of reflection that is at once realist negative modest and devastating than much that takes the name of philosophy conventionally understood which tends to confuse art with moral tutorial 283 284That s a good intro It also marks the damage of time of the philosophical landscape since Steiner wrote his book in the early 60s Tragedy can have no resonance in a society that believes in a just and reasonable god nor in one that believes that man alone determines his destiny through the power of his own reason That s not Steiner that s just a handy summary I stole from another review Who now believes in such a god or such a destiny Critchley begins from the opposite corner arguing that philosophy as it is often practiced blinds us to the kind of thinking reasoning being expressed the Greek tragedies it pretends to explain Here s one uote and I promise it s almost the last But it s a good one Tragedy s philosophy begins from the inevitable facticity of violence and the fragile necessity of reasoning in a world of conflictual force a polytheistic world that continues to think of itself as monotheistic If the acceptance of tragedy s philosophy entails the abandonment of modern theological shibboleths like faith in progress which is underlined by a linear conception of time and history that tragedy twists out of joint then it might also possess the virtue of a modest political realism that has to begin where philosophy should begin in my view with disappointment But although philosophy might begin in disappointment it does not end there Only the contrary disappointment is the graveyard of those philosophies that insist maniacally upon affirmation vitality wonder and creation If you ve read this far you ve probably guessed that in a book of this sort you ll also encounter the fine company of Plato Aristotle Aristophanes Schelling Nietzsche above all Vernant Vidal Nauet Anne Carson This is the kind of book on classics that give classics the life they reuire It honors the recognition that The ancients need our blood in order to revive and live among us Critchley helps us live among them and among all those scholars and artists and readers who ve poured out their blood and learning as a libationPS for those who buy hardbacks Pantheon has produced a fine book to read and hold great typography clean design strong paper Odd to feel compelled to mention this but this book is a welcome exception to some of the shabby trends I ve noticed lately even from publishers of serious nonfiction
