THE ELEGANT WISDOM OF ALBERT CAMUS

ROCCO JARMAN

THURSDAY, JULY 7, 3 PM (PT)

ABOUT THE EVENT

Algerian-born author and philosopher Albert Camus’ philosophy was most elegant precisely because he was not preaching or arguing, he was simply loving out loud, professing his love from the rooftops of an empty page. His greatest works are in the form of stories, with great lessons and no moral sanctimony. He saved us all from the frigid cleverness of nihilism and his work was like the record needle scratch to the soundtrack of nihilistic philosophy that was playing in the lounge room of society at the turn of the last century. He taught us that the cure for existential absurdity and seeming indifference was not hope or redemption, but rather Choice, the choice to step up and create the meaning we were looking for in this world. Join me as I explore the elegant wisdom of this brilliant man.

HOSTED BY

ROCCO JARMAN

I believe in the infinite potential of humans. I know what I came from, the sense of brokenness, disconnection, confusion, smallness and shame, and I know exactly how it felt like to outgrow that sense, and how it felt to connect with something that felt both deep inside myself and far beyond myself, and that very private sense of gratitude and belonging I encountered in that discovery.
