In Episode 1 of Task C, your host Aleks walks Tom through a fundamental idea from 20th-century existentialism – purpose.

They look at a famous quote from Jean-Paul Sartre, who explained his work in ‘Being and Nothingness’ that “Man is a useless passion”. 

After watching or listening to this episode, you should have an understanding of ideas relating to purpose, meaning, identity, nihilism (purposelessness), freedom, free will, values and ethics.
