Feedback form is now closed.
The purpose and goal of my oral presentation is to bring into question the actual value and practicality of implementing the philosophy of absurdity into one's life. I accomplished this by examining the absurd heroes we have studied in class and comparing the pros and cons of living the way they did. Through my cross-examination of these absurd heroes I am able to come to the conclusion that the giving into the absurd prevents one from experiencing emotions that are essential to what it means to be a human being.
