In this play, the playwright makes many good points. However, one of the more crucial themes or lessons of the play is that of suffering being for the betterment of mankind, especially those that are too foolish to take warning when it is given. We see that in lines 176-178 when the text states:"Justice always defeats hubris in the end." So, the wise man understands that it is foolish to defy the will of the gods.
