The Myth of Sisyphus

I read the Myth of Sisyphus, a book by philosopher Albert Camus. He argues that the we at points in our life realise our mortality. And at some points we feel ‘absurd’ and wish to end our lives: this may pass, but death may be the only cure.

The book unveils his view of the meaning of life.

I’ve used a passage of the book for my presentation because I agree that we are all aware of our mortality: so we ‘assert [our] youth’ and live life to the full, therefore, shouldn’t we have the right to choose when it ends?

I found many videos of interpretations of the Myth of Sisyphus on Youtube of a man pushing a rock up a hill; however, I chose Pink Floyd’s.
