What is wrong (if anything) with the reasoning in the following quote by Albert Camus, and why?
I see many people die because they judge that life is not worth living. I see others paradoxically getting killed for the ideas or illusions that give them a reason for living (what is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying). I therefore conclude that the meaning of life is the most urgent of questions.” (The Myth of Sisyphus)
How can he "see" many people die, if he is not a psychiatrist or psychologist? Or more abstractly, if he is not present in their conciousness?
The jump to the conclusion is rather abrupt - is it not laden with faulty reasoning?
