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.
