FYS 1020 - Against the Odds: Discovering Life in the Absurd

Hours: 4
This course will invite students to think about the way in which we respond to adversity—or what Albert Camus described as the Absurd. We will study the way various thinkers have answered this challenge, and we will also explore the way others have acted in literature, film and current events. In doing so, we will explore what it means to be alive and uncover the logic of living. We will consider the ethical, social, political, and psychological conditions needed to live. Students will use their exploration to frame their own transition to college and beyond, and inspire their own journey into an awakened life.
