March 27-31

Hi Everyone! We did not have enough books for the class to study Hamlet at this time so we are reading the novel The Plague by Camus. He is one of the greatest existential writers. Students have a project they are working on and will be presenting on Tuesday, March 28. The students chose an existential writer to discuss with the rest of the class. They need to do a two- page presentation on their chosen writer. This exercise gives us information on the wide variety of existential ideas from the world's great philosophers and writers.
Here are a few of the Existential Writers we will be studying:

Albert Camus
Paul Tillich

Friedrich Nietzsche
