Love of Life, Tragedy and Some Characters in Greek Mythology

  • Halil Turan
Chapter
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 110)

Abstract

There are certain personages whom almost everyone recognizes as concrete characters, and takes as universal descriptions of types of human beings. The coherence of the traits of such figures makes them real persons with virtues or vices, with certain perspectives and inclinations for various pleasures. These creations of the poets are simple and pure in the sense that they appear to incarnate unique values and a will to determine or influence the course of events. Unlike the tragic heroes, we do not consider ordinary men and women worth aesthetical or moral attention.
