The Myth and the Limit

- Rolling a boulder up a hill and watching it roll back down again. Quite a gruesome fate, is it not. It is what Sisyphus got for deceiving the gods. In some versions of the myth, he was the founder and king of Corinth, in others, he was a knave – the most cunning one (he could also have been both, it is no secret that political power and banditry are not incompatible). Fighting for his life and freedom, he angered the gods and ended up in Tartarus, condemned to accomplish the meaningless task he is famous for; thus, for eternity....   [tags: freedom, anarchy, Albert Camus, punk movement]

The Limit Of Our Moral Duty

- The limit of our Moral Duty in regards to Famine Relief In the article “Famine, Affluence, and Morality,” Peter Singer argues that our conceptions on moral belief need to change.
