Well then, I’m writing this as I take a break from the head-bashing-inducing fun of writing a 2500 word philosophy essay in 24 hours that I should have spent the past week working on, but didn’t.
I’m comparing the philosophical views of Albert Camus’ The Plague, Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, Douglas Coupland’s Shampoo Planet and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. All four fall within the postmodern philosophical milieu in one way or another, although you wouldn’t think so at first.
Anyways, although I love philosophy for the most part, I find that I’m currently in agreement with those who think it’s too abstract and doesn’t really pertain to real life. Of course I’ll feel different when my paper’s done. Funny how that works eh?
