Professor Martin Thibodeau releases new book:"Hegel and Greek Tragedy"
Saint Paul University Philosophy professor Martin Thibodeau has released his new book Hegel and Greek Tragedy by Lexington Books.Professor Thibodeau specializes in 19th and 20thcentury German Philosophy form Kant to Adorno. His publications include La Théorie Esthétique d’Adorno: Une Introduction (Presses Universitaires de Rennes, France, 2008).
His new book is concerned with the different interpretations of Greek tragedy proposed by G.W.F. Hegel. While Hegel’s philosophical interest in tragedy as an art form is well known, the motivation for his preoccupation with this art form needs to be further explored. Indeed, why would Hegel, a pivotal figure of German idealism, be inclined to concern himself with a form of poetry that reached its peak in the 5th century B.C. Precisely this question forms the core of this book. It articulates what the primary stakes are and thereby develop and defend the thesis that Hegel’s examination of Greece and tragedy is one that has a direct bearing on the “fate” of politics in the modern world.
