Sample text

In Des hégémonies brisées, Schürmann searchingly examines three such epochal phantasms: the Greek principle of the One (with reference to Parmenides and Plotinus), the Latin principle of Nature (in Cicero, Augustine, and certain medieval thinkers), and the modern principle of the subjectivity of consciousness (with reference to Luther and Kant), together with the discordant temporalization that, for Heidegger, is the tragic origin that dispropriates hegemonic phantasms. Schürmann’s constellation of texts examined for each epoch is intended to juxtapose those that inaugurate the epochal configuration with those that subvert it.

It also does not keep it from continuing its important work of confronting systematic philosophy with the challenge of the negative, even though it can no longer do so within the parameters of ethicality. NIETZSCHE’S “OPTICS” OF TRAGEDY When the young Nietzsche entered into the tragic turning of philosophy with The Birth of Tragedy (published in 1872 and preceded by several closely related, unpublished essays),46 he broke with Hegel’s then-dominant interpretation and redefined the tragic paradigm for philosophy.

In modern tragic drama, by contrast, action is not motivated by ethicality, but by purely subjective purposes, while the characters, who are psychologically far more developed, reflect inexhaustible human diversity. They often lack inner clarity and steadfastness and are given, instead, to vaccillation and discord. A tragedy driven by these subjective factors is, Hegel finds, more saddening and distressing than intellectually satisfying; and poetically the development of a character in terms of “the formal necessity of [his or her] individuality” is preferable (his example is the old King Lear’s progression from 18 EPO CHAL DISCO RDANCE doting folly to madness).
