“Let us first ask ourselves what should be understood by a tragic optimism. In brief it means that one is, and remains, optimistic in spite of the “tragic triad,” as it is called in logotherapy, a triad which consists of those aspects of human existence which may be circumscribed by: (1) pain; (2) guilt; and (3) death.” Man’s Search for Meaning-Viktor Frankl.
