S&F and Philosophy Now – “Camus & the Myth of Sisyphus” Posted on October 10, 2013 by simonandfinn This piece was published in the Camus issue of Philosophy Now. Bonus for S&F followers! The Easter Egg in the strip (where easter egg refers to the gamer term for a hidden message or joke) is that the song they are singing at the end is the refrain for.. click here to find out! 🙂 Share this:FacebookEmailTwitterPinterestMoreLinkedInTumblrRedditPrintLike this:Like Loading...

Congratulations on wrapping your head around this!? %]
Thanks David! I’m really enjoying your writing (http://hogtownscribbleanddaub.blogspot.ca/ ) but I can’t find a place where I can follow the blog! Help. 🙂
Hi Melissa – hogtown is a pretty popular place but in this case there was more than one old hippy there – it’s me John a.k.a. metalbender. I have a new WP for my writing and at the moment it is a perfect blank, an Alberta clipper, a table rasa, etc.
Sheesh, I’ll get to it. 😛
Hey! I thought it was David as per the member blogs on TOWC! Sorry about that. I really like your new site! You should definitely open that up for comments. 🙂
Sorry about that Melissa, I haven’t set any info up it is so new. Right now it’s a zero visibility snowstorm, a white out, tabla rasa, etc. And, ZAP!! wrong hippy; “Dave’s not here” – Cheech & Chong if my memory serves me right, it’s John from metalbender with a brand new writing site.
Sheesh I’ll get to it.
Ya better! I like what you’ve been doing on that site. Cool, interesting, and thought-provoking. 🙂
If I could find some time in my days, I think I really would enjoy a subscription to Philosophy Now 🙂 I found a quote (loosely adapted here) that resonated with me: “still fulfilling the purpose of existence when no longer needing to have any purpose except to live” (from the article “On Living Without Transcendence: A Homage to Camus” Sep/Oct 2013 Issue).
That is so awesome, Mel, that you keep having your S&F work published! Good song choice, too! Funnily, I looked this song up on youtube not too long ago. I suppose if Sisyphus accepted the fate that was bestowed, contentment would be achieved, and thus, such a life would indeed be meaningful.
I must look up this Sisyphus character, and perhaps learn something…
Hey there, yes I’m a big fan of Philosophy Now – pretty interesting pieces and each issue is very diverse with contributions from all over the world. I”m glad I stumbled across the magazine. Interesting quote… I interpret that as contentment? Not sure though, but it seems – pleasant – somehow.
Thank you for the support! Sisyphus is an interesting chap, worth looking up.. 🙂

I suspect Sisyphus was Autotelic.
Someone has a fantastic memory! I’ve just started that Camus book.. thank you so much. 🙂
