Der Umschlag von allem in nichts
Theorie tragischer Erfahrung
[Transforming All into Nothing: A Theory of Tragic Experience]
Aims and Scope
This book uses a philosophical reflection on the corpus of Greek tragedy to develop a new theory of tragic experience, for the first time turning the focus on the individual who is suffering. Asmus Trautsch probes the ethical and aesthetic pertinence of tragedy for our times and uses it as a surprisingly apt model for understanding the global phenomena of self-endangerment so characteristic of modernity.
