The goal of Jan Kounen and Denis Marquet (lecturer in Philosophy,
author of a noted thesis on "The Odyssey," and author as well of
the book "Colère") is to use the main adventures of Homer's epic to
bring to the forefront the underlying question behind it: the choice
between divine will and human nature.
Are our lives but a story written by the immortal above, or that
which we live here on Earth?
Is Ulysses to return to Ithaca to rule his kingdom and live alongside
his loved ones, or will he let himself be lured by the promises of
the Gods, who offer him a journey without end?
For all journeys -- even those without end -- still have meaning,
and what is human nature if not to search for life's meaning?
