Tragic is when a 6 year old kid dies of cancer.
When a grown man gets drunk and dies being stupid that is not tragic.
Sorry,...had to correct you.
I know this is an old post, but just wanted to weigh in on your comments. I find it very discrediting for you to tag yourself as one of the greatest philosophers to have ever lived. With such a ignorant post/ opinion / your philosophy . Assuming that you consider yourself a superior man of great intellect by calling yourself "Aristotle", in which is funny and ironic at the same time. But let me school you up on philosophy, so maybe the next time you have an opinion you won't have to hide behind the name of intelligence with your ignorant opinions on life and everything else that you feel is right . Here's a taste of some real philosophy,“Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change, the superior man is all-embracing and not partial, the inferior man is partial and not all-embracing ,the superior man is aware of Righteousness, the inferior man is aware of advantage. "Confucius" . IGNORANCE dies in the presents of KNOWLEDGE

Every man is entitled to his own opinion. My opinion is that something considered tragic should be something that is outside of our control. When a heroin addict overdoses and dies that is not tragic, that is natural selection. This particular instance was that a grown man did something dangerous and compounded the danger by being heavily intoxicated. The only real tragedy involved were that his supposed loved ones stood by and allowed him to do so. I have seen tragedy the world over and this is not it.

A tragedy is a representation of an action that is whole and complete and of a certain magnitude. A whole is what has a beginning and middle and end.

I do not consider myself of "superior" intellect because I chose this avatar for my discussions here. Aristotle was a debater and I myself enjoy a great debate. That being said I am no better than any other man. I work for a living, I have had as many failures in life as I have had successes. I have likely rarely had a one hundred percent original thought, and I believe that to be true of most men in today's world. I have strong convictions and beliefs and while I share them freely I force them on none.
