Ancient Philosophy on Tragedy - Dictionary of Arguments
Gadamer I 134
Tragedy/Ancient Philosophy/Gadamer: What is reflected in the reflection on the tragic from Aristotle up to the present is certainly not an unchangeable being. That the nature of tragedy is presented in a unique way in the Attic tragedy is no doubt - and different for Aristotle, for whom Euripides was the most "tragic"(1) different for the one, for example, to whom Aeschylus reveals the true depth of the tragic phenomenon - but even more different for the one who thinks of Shakespeare or Hebbel. Such a change, however, does not simply mean that the question of the unified nature of the tragedy becomes irrelevant, but on the contrary, that the phenomenon presents itself in its outline, condensed into a historical unity. >Tragedy/Kierkegaard, >Tragedy/Aristotle.
