Serious Comedy

The Philosophical and Theological Significance of Tragic and Comic Writing in the Western Tradition

How seriously should we take literature? The ancients were divided: Plato only wanted comedy, whereas Aristotle wanted tragedy. The answer depends on whether reality is, at root, a tragedy or comedy. In this masterful overview of Western philosophy, Patrick Downey shows how the Bible, and the Gospel it proclaims, put all writing in its proper place and give us what the philosophers and poets have longed for: a serious comedy.
