After World War II, this Nobel prize-winning author challenged the many crises confronting our humanity: nuclear weapons, aggressive nationalism, warfare, greed, racism, plagues and our lack of commitment to our common humanity. The crises still exist today and utilizing the book Albert Camus and the Human Crisis by Robert Emmet Meagher, this discussion class will ponder the problems and solutions investigated by this wonderful “storyteller.”  In this time of division in our country and world we need his message today. Reading for the first class will be the introduction and the first three chapters.
