Course Summary

Some say that human life is meaningless, or absurd. How so? If this is true, how should we feel, and what should we do about it? On the other hand, if life has or can have a meaning, what is it, and how do we find it? Join Dr. Doug Adeney to examine these questions and consider various responses including those of Leo Tolstoy, Albert Camus, Thomas Nagel and Monty Python.

 

About Doug Adeney

Dr Douglas Adeney lectured in philosophy for many years at Melbourne State College and then the University of Melbourne. Since 2011 he has greatly enjoyed teaching numerous CAE philosophy courses.

A non-academic friend of his was once asked by his wife what Doug did for a living. On hearing that he was a philosopher, she said ‘Oooh, he must be very intelligent … Or is he just weird?’ Come and decide for yourself.
