The Tragedy of Life

How should we deal with the tragic side of life? And how have the philosophers responded to the tragic fragility of life and happiness, especially in modern times, from Nietzsche onwards? Grant Bartley from Philosophy Now talks to Christopher Hamilton and Simon May from King’s College London, and Ken Gemes from Birkbeck, University of London. First broadcast on 21 February 2012 on Resonance FM.
