“There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is pepperoni or sausage.” Wait; no, that’s not right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Philosophy students, led by members of Peter Shea’s Existentialism class, celebrated Albert Camus’s birthday on November 7 with pizza, Dairy Queen cake, and a spirited discussion of what members of the group found valuable, or puzzling, or disturbing or challenging about this philosopher. Camus is most famous, perhaps, for his novels THE STRANGER and THE PLAGUE, and his philosophical work THE MYTH OF SISYPHUS, which begins with the haunting observation ““There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide.” The curious can find an authoritative discussion of his philosophy here.
