Name: Instructor: Task: Date: Discussion questions Question 1 According to Camus life is absurd since one is born in the world without any choice over the matter. One’s presence on earth leaves little or no mark after their death and when one considers things like the entire universe they realise that their existence amounts to nothing. Camus however notes that there are many small meanings within an individual’s life but there is nothing like the meaning of life itself. Camus shows that makes bad choices and later on in life decides to change and become better people. Despite the change the person will always live with the effects of what they did in the past.
