Immerse yourself in Albert Camus’ philosophy of the absurd and explore the question: If the world is meaningless, could our lives still have any value? — Albert Camus grew up surrounded by violence. His native country of Algeria was mired in conflict. He lost his father in World War I. Seeing the devastation of World War II, Camus became despondent. What was the point behind all this endless bloodshed and suffering? And if the world were meaningless, could our individual lives still have value? Nina Medvinskaya explores Camus’ philosophy of the absurd. Lessons from Nina Medvinskaya directed by Avi Ofer.
