In Time of Pandemic, America, a Nation of Strangers! Prof. David Schultz

Prof. Schultz argues, Truth may be stranger than fiction as Mark Twain once said. Yet fiction often speaks truth to reality. In the case of civilization living under the dagger of Covid-19, many are turning to books and plays for distraction and pleasure. While some might read Waiting for Godot in hopes that the quarantines and the disease will soon pass.

What we learn from reading The Stranger and The Plague is that there is a script to human nature.  It is the script of  Kübler-Ross that plays out with every tragedy.  How we respond to events like Covid-19 is like living in the movie Groundhog Day, where we simply relive and reenact a series of scripted events that prove that Hegel was correct–the only thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history.
