#40 - "Tragedy" - February 5th, 2013

 

A rain of lollipops, child leashes, injured koalas making Ghostbusters references... and a link to a City Slickers clip? I guess we'd best jump into some fun facts on Absurdism!

 

 

 

Fun facts!

 

 

  • Absurdism is a philosophy that believes the efforts of humanity to find inherent meaning will ultimately fail.

 

  • One of the leading absurdist philosophers was Albert Camus. His exploration of absurdity led to the ideas that "The freedom of humans is thus established in a human's natural ability and opportunity to create their own meaning and purpose; to decide (or think) for him- or herself."

 

  •  Camus probably would have gotten along pretty well with "Curly."
