This essay discusses how the Greeks struggled with a profound restlessness and nervousness in regard to human striving and betterment. They believed in these virtues, but they also thought that they could not save one from fate. Greek Tragedy often depicts this dilemma: a noble man's struggle with a fate he cannot change despite his great ability and intelligence. In fact, his struggle is tragic but also pointless since his very ability only serves to bring about his doom.
