Description:

This paper examines the oft-misunderstood "Myth of Sisyphus" by Albert Camus.

The paper asserts that it is this willingness to stare squarely in the face of meaningless and yet still conclude it is possible to live a happy, fulfilled life that so distinguishes Camus' "Sisyphus" from other philosophical treatises on the same subject.
