Am I Free?

The central questions of this unit are: Am I free? What is the meaning of life? and Does life have purpose? We examine these questions through the lens of modern existentialists like Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre. By reading Camus’ great classics The Stranger and “The Myth of Sisyphus,” we come to a better understanding of the tenets of existentialism.
