Jacques Pradel skilfully guides you to an understanding of the demanding thoughts of Albert Camus. The quality of his reading makes this recording the best way to discover the modern philosophical feat that can be found in the 'The Myth of Sisyphus'.
The changes seen in the first half of the 20th century transformed the base of European thought after which more doubt was cast and more questioning of the essence of existence arose. In this work, Camus confronts man with the absurdity of the human condition yet it is not lost in nihilist pessimism: it is tragic, as Sisyphus is aware, but the hero's task can also be a happy one as Camus' claims that ultimately his destiny belongs to him. This is a fantastic rendition of a serious and difficult modern work.
