The essays in this volume grew out of the reflections and discussions
conducted during the second international conference „Impulses from
Salzburg“ from May 6 to 9, 2008, on „Facing Tragedies“. In accordance with
the aims of this project, participants were asked to reflect not simply on
the nature and meaning of tragedy but also on ways in which those who are
the victims of tragedy make sense of, or cope with, their condition. It
was recognised that abstract reflection is important in this regard, but
also that such reflection must be rooted in ordinary, everyday. experience,
and thus the conference had as one of its aims the attempt to ensure that
philosophical reflection not lose the moorings it needs in the reality of
ordinary life.
