    PDF/EPUB academics20193.co ´ Tragedy the Greeks and Us PDF/EPUB Î Tragedy the PDF tragedy mobile, greeks book, Tragedy the ebok, Greeks and kindle, the Greeks and epub, Tragedy the Greeks and Us ePUBIn this work Simon Critchley explores Greek tragedies arguing that the Attica tragedies import a philosophy tragedy's philosophy which differs from the dominate philosophy of Rationalism handed down from us from Plato All of this is fine but it seems that at times Critchley is making claims that are self evident to the reader who has read the Greeks and who has read Nietzsche Nevertheless the work is a wonderful guide into the wonderful world of Greek tragedy which Critchley correctly shows is a world of ambiguity eliding certainty raising uestions that remain open and is a world that is only partially intelligible to human agency where autonomy is necessarily limited by some acknowledgment of dependency

    PDF/EPUB academics20193.co ´ Tragedy the Greeks and Us PDF/EPUB Î Tragedy the PDF tragedy mobile, greeks book, Tragedy the ebok, Greeks and kindle, the Greeks and epub, Tragedy the Greeks and Us ePUBI really respect Simon Critchley I appreciate his work in the area of the philosophies of Heidegger and Levinas I expected a lot and was excited by a glimpse of some central claim here about the possibility of a different approach to philosophy that reflects the moral ambiguity of tragedy Sadly I felt it never really delved deep enough into that possibility and the whole book remained a rambling introduction that covered a lot of area but did so only superficially

    PDF/EPUB academics20193.co ´ Tragedy the Greeks and Us PDF/EPUB Î Tragedy the PDF tragedy mobile, greeks book, Tragedy the ebok, Greeks and kindle, the Greeks and epub, Tragedy the Greeks and Us ePUBA philosophical look at the nature of ancient Athenian tragedy and how we interact with it and how it interacts with us? A rather dense text delightful at times but at others a bit of a slog A lot of the emphasis is rather on philosophy than tragedy There are extensive bits about Socrates Plato and Aristotle among others and their thoughts on tragedy among other things There are some odd assertions like that Socrates admired craftsmen and craftsmanship but had no practical skills himself was he not a stonemason? There are sections on comedy that seem beyond what might be a reasonable comparison and contrast with tragedy Indeed the book feels like it meanders in topic and scope a bit and while it is often well written enough that sections of the book are enjoyable I felt the book lacked coherence and this made it harder to enjoy the
