Plagues have occurred throughout recorded history and strained the fabric of civil societies, yet they don’t break them irreparably. They also have provoked philosophers and poets to understand larger questions raised by such trauma. This podcast includes opportunities for similar discussion by focusing on passages from Albert Camus’ The Plague. School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership faculty, Luke Perez and Trevor Shelley, begin their discussion of Camus’ work in this episode.
