Awards[edit] See also[edit] References[edit] External links[edit] Albert Camus. Albert Camus (French: [albɛʁ kamy] ( Camus did not consider himself to be an existentialist despite usually being classified as one, even during his own lifetime.[1] In an interview in 1945, Camus rejected any ideological associations: "No, I am not an existentialist. Sartre and I are always surprised to see our names linked... ".[2] Camus was born in French Algeria to a Pied-Noir family, and studied at the University of Algiers. In 1949, Camus founded the Group for International Liaisons within the Revolutionary Union Movement after his split with Garry Davis's Citizens of the World movement.[3] The formation of this group, according to Camus, was intended to "denounce two ideologies found in both the USSR and the USA" regarding their idolatry of technology.[4] Camus was awarded the 1957 Nobel Prize for Literature "for his important literary production, which with clear-sighted earnestness illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times".[5] Early years[edit] Marriages[edit]

Bertolt Brecht. Bertolt Brecht (English: /brɛkt/[1][2][3] German: [ˈbɛɐ̯tɔlt ˈbʁɛçt] ( ); born Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht ; 10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956) was a German poet, playwright, theatre director, and Marxist. A theatre practitioner of the 20th century, Brecht made contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter through the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble – the post-war theatre company operated by Brecht and his wife, long-time collaborator and actress Helene Weigel.[4] Life and career[edit] Bavaria (1898–1924)[edit] Bertolt Brecht was born in Augsburg, Bavaria (about 80 km or 50 mi north-west of Munich), to a devout Protestant mother and a Catholic father (who had been persuaded to have a Protestant wedding). When he was 16, the First World War broke out. In July 1919, Brecht and Paula Banholzer (de) (who had begun a relationship in 1917) had a son, Frank. "[Brecht's] language is vivid without being deliberately poetic, symbolical without being over literary.

Stéphane Hessel. Stéphane Frédéric Hessel (20 October 1917 – 26 February 2013[2]) was a diplomat, ambassador, writer, concentration camp survivor, French Resistance member and BCRA agent. Born German, he became a naturalised French citizen in 1939. He became an observer of the editing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948. In 2011 he was named by Foreign Policy magazine in its list of top global thinkers. In later years his activism focused on economic inequalities, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and protection for the post-WW2 social vision.

His short book Time for Outrage! Sold 4.5 million copies worldwide. Early years[edit] Hessel was born in Berlin, the son of Helen (born Grund), a journalist, and writer Franz Hessel, who inspired the characters of Jules and Kathe in Henri-Pierre Roché's novel Jules and Jim[3] (Kathe was called Catherine in the subsequent film adaptation by François Truffaut).

Gideon Levy (Hebrew: גדעון לוי‎; born 1953) is an Israeli journalist. Levy writes opinion pieces and a weekly column for the newspaper Haaretz that often focus on the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. A notable journalist on the Israeli left,[1] Levy has been characterized as a "heroic journalist" by some,[2] by others as a "propagandist for the Hamas".[3] Biography[edit] Levy resides in the Ramat Aviv neighborhood of Tel Aviv (on the lands of Sheikh Munis),[11] and is a divorced father of two.[12] He says his sons do not share his politics and do not read anything he writes.[13] Journalism and media career[edit] In 1974, Levy was drafted into the Israeli Defense Forces where he served as a reporter for Israel Army Radio.

Levy has said that his views on Israel's policies toward the Palestinians developed only after joining Haaretz. Views and opinions[edit] Levy supports unilateral withdrawal from occupied Palestinian territories without concessions. Published works[edit] George Orwell. Timothy Leary.

Où serait localisée notre conscience ? Réponse Scientifique : Notre conscience se situe dans notre système nerveux. Le cerveau est le hardware, l'ordinateur biologique qui fabrique et transporte les realités que nous vivons. Les logiciels de bases qui dirigent le cerveau sont les programmes, les répertoires, les fichiers et les systèmes d'opération personnels determinant l'âme de l'individu. Que devient notre conscience (notre mémoire) lorsque le fonctionnement physique du corps s'interrompt ? Reponse Scientifique : A moins d'employer des méthodes de conservation spécifiques, le cerveau commence à se décomposer dès la mort du corps. L'incinération offre plus de dignité que la putréfaction. LES RELIGIONS TOTALITAIRES interdisent l'incinération. Comment peut-on conserver le hardware du cerveau pour le réanimer suite a la mort physique du corps ? Il existe trois méthodes scientifiques pour conserver le cerveau: 1. 2. 3. Seamus Heaney.
