Camus said "Everything I know about morality and the obligations of men, I owe it to football".
With guest Juan Fernandez we discuss the formative years of Albert Camus, philosopher, journalist, Author and Nobel Laureate.
Camus spent his formative years playing what he considered to be the most isolated of positions; goalkeeper. The dichotomy of absenteeism and sole blame that a keeper endures is what Camus credits with his ideas of Absurdism.
Sidelined by illness, Camus was able to pursue philosophy full time. And we all may be the better for it.
