Existentialist Discussion (including chat about Camus' The Fall)

Please note this meetup on June 16th 2013 replaces the one scheduled for May 19th 2013 which has now been cancelled.

Another unscripted discussion for anyone who likes to hear and talk about existentialist perspectives.

From previous discussions, some of us have been reading Camus' The Fall so if you have a chance you might be interested in reading it.  Actually I was a bit doubtful at first but I have started reading it and I have to say I'm gripped!  I found a .mobi version for Kindle at http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/4972849/albert-camus-the-fall-mobi-257k and there is a pdf at http://evankozierachi.com/uploads/The_Fall_by_Albert_Camus.pdf.  I presume it's out of copyright.  If you get a chance to read it, it's a relatively short work (40 pages or so of A4), don't worry if you don't get a chance.

    I've not read The Fall but The Outsider is my favorite existentialist work.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
