Poetic Justice/Prosaic Terror
Poetic justice is one of those expressions we occasionally use but when asked what it really means, find it quite hard to explain. In this podcast we’ll employ the help of Joseph DeMaistre and his understanding of French Revolution and ensuing terror as an instance of poetical justice and the deeper ordo essendi it stems from.
Poetic justice is the instance in which criminal has been punished by the very extremity of his criminal act and DeMaistre was convinced that French Revolution displayed this in quite unique manner.
