The master brings in the man and says, 'Why are you doing this? Kurgan instead found herself looking at data that implied odd, overlapping, often oblong bulges, detours, and trails created by positions that did not physically exist. In many ways he resembles Valjean - he is faced with similar problems of trying to live with his past and he is driven by a sense of duty.

Here, in this unexceptionable experience, we may note the symbolizing processes that are both verbal and nonverbal. My preference in teaching is to focus deeply rather than broadly on major philosophical thinkers.

It fails to acknowledge one’s social debt and communal existence. Meursault is placed in an indifferent world, a world that embraces absurdity and persecutes reason; such is the nature of existentialist belief, that rationalization and logic are ultimately the essence of humanity, and that societal premonitions and an irrelevant status quo serve only to perpetuate a false sense of truth....
