Camden Philosophical Society Meeting

Tuesday, July 19, 2022 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

At the Camden Philosophical Society’s next regularly scheduled reading and discussion group, at 4 pm on Tuesday, July 19, we will continue on the literary path we entered in June, with a discussion of the philosophical themes in Albert Camus’ The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays. Once again, an open discussion is planned in which participants are asked to direct the group’s attention to parts of these essays that they find particularly compelling. The portions of Camus’ work that will form the basis for our discussion are the section “Absurd Freedom” In the first chapter, entitled “Absurd Reasoning”; the entire chapter entitled “Absurd Creation”: and, of course, “The Myth of Sisyphus” itself.  Here is a link to an online presentation of the book: https://postarchive.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/myth-of-sisyphus-and-other-essays-the-albert-camus.pdf 

The meeting will be a hybrid combination of in-person at the Picker Room of the Camden Public Library or Zoom. All are welcome to attend by either mode. If you wish to participate via Zoom, please let us know by emailing sarahmiller@usa.net. You will then receive a Zoom invitation on the morning of the meeting, Click on the “Join Zoom Meeting” link in that invitation at the time of the event. We will again be using the library’s OWL system to facilitate hybrid attendance. It is necessary that all Zoom participants remain in “Mute” mode when they are not speaking, in order to prevent the kind of sound distortion some of us experienced last month.
