Authentic Self


Camus – The Rebel, The Myth Of Sisyphus, From Solitude to Solidarity How Camus Left Nihilism Behind

Main Ideas

  • How western thought has appropriated not-self meditation and left ethical self-development behind.
  • Being serious about developing one’s own self-theory, using mind and body in a skilful way in an absurd universe.
  • Living by your own experience, working with the world as you find it. Finding ways to be inspiring and continue to be inspired by others.
