How Tragedy Can Heal Society: The Oresteia as Political Therapy with Dr. Nicolai Petro

What does classical tragedy have to do with geopolitics? Why is it so important for modern statesmen, diplomats to think like Aeschylus and why should more artists think like statesmen?

In this Rising Tide Foundation lecture, Dr Nicolai Petro introduces classical Greek Tragedy from a moral, and philosophical perspective containing within its essence, the necessary remedies for the geopolitical ills plaguing humanity- whether 2500 years ago or in our present crisis-ridden age.
