Manolis Tsipos

A contemporary European tragedy

 

Can the European Debt Crisis be, in fact, seen as a story that – driven by desire – went wrong? Although manifested as a complex system of monetary transactions, it is perhaps possible to perceive the melancholic currency of contemporary Europe as the heritage of an ancient-old Greek tragedy; that of Chrysippus. The harsh story of his rape is a never-ending urgency. Today’s Debt Crisis is haunted by very old desires.
