We can say that the Europidian Greek tragedy situated at the outset man to extreme limits, on the border where the divine begins. Any tragedy signifies and stimulates the energy of the hero to surpass himself through an incredible act of courage, to give a new measure of his greatness in the face of obstacles, to the unknown he meets in the world and in the society of his time. The tragedy shows us that in the very fact of human existence there is a challenge, or a paradox, it tells us that sometimes the aspirations of man come into conflict with the forces of the unexplained and destructive, which is beyond and yet very close to us. The poet and philosopher Euripides turns out to be a great humanist, he loves and sympathizes with the people, suggesting that by birth we are all equal.

“The Greektragedy” obviously plays a central role in the escalation of the European crisis, and it is
far from being resolved with the arrival of the Tspiras government. It represents a sort of proxy for
all the problems and troubles experienced by the monetary union, starting with the violation of the
“principle of sincere cooperation” by the Greek authorities. It is with Greece that “default”
definitely enters the public discourse, still staying with us today. European public opinion becomes

the author’s statements, but I was a little puzzled by the sentence concerning
Shakespeare’s plays: “As distinguished from Greektragedy, fate is not
manifested as an unseen power hovering over the tragic heroes’ process of
maturity, but as part of their nature, as they develop in certain circumstances”.

The principle, power, or agency by which, according to certain
philosophical and popular systems of belief, all events, or some events in

[…] an apotheosis of the media, the electronic transposition of the Greektragedy contained by it and,
through the collective catharsis it makes possible, an indispensable complement to democracy, the talk
show ultimately represents a structure within which two forms of social representation resonate and
contaminate each other: the state-show, alongside its political heroes, and the state-television together
with the instantaneous socialization proposed by it during the great ideological debates (9).
