Episode 9: Optimism without hope
Sep 16th, 2020 by Pandemic Dialogues
In this episode, we conclude the discussion of Albert Camus' novel, The Plague. We are joined by a listener who goes by the handle @barttels2 on Twitter. We discuss reading the novel as a medical play as well as a moral one, and how Camus offers us a way to be optimistic without hope. This episode was recorded before our summer hiatus in June of 2020.
