I take issue with two suggestions of Joel Feinberg's: first that it is incoherent to suppose that human life as such is absurd and second that a particular human life may be absurd and yet saved from being tragic by being fulfilled. I also argue that human life as such may well be absurd and I consider various responses to this.
