(Hybrid: In-Person & on Zoom) Camden Philosophical Society Meeting

Tuesday, August 16 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Albert Camus will again be the featured writer at the next regularly scheduled discussion session of the Camden Philosophical Society,  at 4 pm on Tuesday, Aug. 16. In July, as part of our ongoing “literary phase,” the group discussed Camus’ The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays. In August, we will discuss his short philosophical novel The Fall. Once again, an open discussion is planned in which participants are asked to direct the group’s attention to parts of the book or ideas contained in it that they find particularly compelling.  

Here are links to two online presentations of the book from which participants may choose: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnx3cml0ZXNwYXI5fGd4OjZhMTNjZTQ2YmMyYmU4MTk  OR http://www.miltonthed.weebly.com/uploads/1/4/1/6/14162844/__camus_albert_-_the_fall.pdf  In both cases, the translator is Justin O’Brien.

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.
