    Rethinking Existentialism.Jonathan Webber - 2018 - Oxford: Oxford University Press.
    Jonathan Webber articulates an original interpretation of existentialism as the ethical theory that human freedom is the foundation of all other values. Offering an original analysis of classic literary and philosophical works published by Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Frantz Fanon up until 1952, Webber's conception of existentialism is developed in critical contrast with central works by Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. -/- Presenting his arguments in an accessible and engaging style, Webber contends that Beauvoir and Sartre (...)

    In Search of Enlightenment by Reading Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.Syed Ismyl Mahmood Rizvi - 2015 - Literaria: An International Journal of New Literature Across the World 5 (1-2):37-55.
    Beckett’s philosophical indebtedness has long been recognised – especially in conjunction with Dante, Descartes and Geulincx. In this article, I examine Beckettian universal values of Enlightenment, which will be exposed as self-serving mystifications that rationalize and instrumentalize the meaning of life. In this context, the awareness of the Enlightenment nature of Beckett’s writing in Waiting for Godot will be analysed along with the freedom appeal of his reader as he strives to attain the enlightenment.

    Psychoanaliza życia, czyli Gaston Bachelard czyta Pieśni Maldorora.Marta Ples-Bęben - 2016 - Diametros 49:84-102.
    In 1939 Gaston Bachelard published a book Lautréamont on the poem The Songs of Maldoror by Isidore Ducasse. Bachelard’s Lautréamont was inspired by the method of psychoanalysis. The purpose of this article is to analyze Bachelard’s interpretation of the Chants, to compare his version of psychoanalysis with the versions of Freud and Jung, and to show its meaning in the historical and philosophical context.

    Is Human Life Absurd?Billy Holmes - 2019 - Philosophia 47 (2):429-434.
    This essay examines whether or not absurdity is intrinsic to human life. It takes Camus’ interpretation of ‘The Absurd’ as its conceptual starting point. It traces such thought back to Schopenhauer, whose work is then critically analysed. This analysis focuses primarily on happiness and meaning. This essay accepts some of Schopenhauer’s premises, but rejects his conclusions. Instead, it considers Nietzsche’s alternatives and the role of suffering in life. It posits that suffering may help people acquire meaning and escape absurdity. It (...)

    Silence of the Idols: Appropriating the Myth of Sisyphus for Posthumanist Discourses.Steven Umbrello & Jessica Lombard - 2018 - Postmodern Openings 9 (4):98-121.
    Both current and past analyses and critiques of transhumanist and posthumanist theories have had a propensity to cite the Greek myth of Prometheus as a paradigmatic figure. Although stark differences exist amongst the token forms of posthumanist theories and transhumanism, both theoretical domains claim promethean theory as their own. There are numerous definitions of those two concepts: therefore, this article focuses on posthumanism thought. By first analyzing the appropriation of the myth in posthumanism, we show how the myth fails to (...)

    Camus’ Feeling of the Absurd.Thomas Pölzler - 2018 - Journal of Value Inquiry 52 (4):477-490.
    Albert Camus is most famous for his engagement with the absurd. Both in his philosophical and literary works his main focus was on the nature and normative consequences of this idea. However, Camus was also concerned with what he referred to as the “feeling of the absurd”. Philosophers have so far paid little attention to Camus’ thoughts about the feeling of the absurd. In this paper I provide a detailed analysis of this feeling. It turns out that the feeling of (...)

    I argue that not only do Nietzsche and Camus share a sense of the world as fundamentally “strange,” but that each adopts an authorial position as stranger to the reader as well. The various strategies of concealment, evasion, and silence they employ to assure their authorial strangeness are in the service of what Roland Barthes and Michel Foucault would later call “the death of the author,” the disappearance of the author as authority over his or her own text. I argue (...)

    Religious Response to Metaphysical Rebellion.Bilal Dar - 2010 - Transcendent Philosophy Journal 11:155-176.
    Camus popularized the notion of the absurd and the response ofmetaphysical rebellion.

    Religious Traces on Albert Camus.Herman Licayan - 2012 - Philosophia 40 (1).
    A few of Albert Camus’s commentators were already uncomfortable in calling him an atheist which, according to the general perception, he is. Some of them even challenged the labeling of Camus as an atheist in the anthology of existentialist philosophers. A careful study of Camus’s works as well as of his personal life reveals that such a challenge is not baseless at all. This paper will explore Camus’s commendation of monasticism, which might be unthinkable to many who have read The (...)

    Camus on a Disquietude That Cannot Be Distilled!Robert Trundle Jr - 2002 - Philosophia: International Journal of Philosophy (Philippine e-journal) 31 (2).
    Camus's apparent flirtation with Catholicism is rooted in his notion of absurdity. Paradoxically, an absurdity of existence both unites us to the world and alienates us from it. Whereas the alienation was avoided by a traditional philosophy that improperly imposed reason on reality, ultimate reality was construed by religion as a God who passes understanding. And though limitations on understanding are embodied by such things as a paradox of Christ who is both man and not man, Camus's profound insights on (...)

    The concepts of revolt and freedom are key words and points of reference in the works and thought of Albert Camus and Martin Luther King, Jr. Both men chose to answer the call, within the context of their vocations, to address the needs of human beings who were suffering, exploited, dehumanized and oppressed. Individual and collective strategies founded upon revolt and protest for freedom became their agenda for action, and the call for a more civilized world. ;The theoretical framework or (...)

    Creating Morality in a Nietzschean Universe: The Political Thought of Albert Camus.David Todd Millard - 1998 - Dissertation, University of California, Riverside
    Among the main characteristics of Camus's work are two seemingly divergent ideas about ethics. In his early works, Camus explored a self-centered ethos of living based on his Nietzschean world view. In seeming contrast, Camus took up distinctly moral themes in his literary works published after WWII. The tension between these two sets of ideas has led some interpreters to argue that Camus's moral philosophy is fundamentally inconsistent, that he is unable to convince us that the morality he propounds can (...)

It causes suffering and even death. The plague and other infirmities, both physical and mental, are aggressors. They are indiscriminate, merciless, and oftentimes deadly. Tyrants, too, are aggressors, (...)

    Levinasian Ethics and the Works of Albert Camus.Elizabeth Jane Hart - 1997 - Dissertation, State University of New York at Buffalo
    This thesis explores the works of Albert Camus through a language of ethics developed by French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. Levinas' declaration of ethics as the first philosophy, replaces the ontology that was laid out by Martin Heidegger in his monumental work Being and Time. The use of this philosophy to help understand the fiction and philosophical works of Camus allows him to be seen in a frame other than that of the Existentialists with whom he is usually classified. Reading ethics (...)

    The paper aims to show, how, according to A. Camus, it is possible for humans to cope with the absence of meaning in their lives. It covers the transformations the concept of human destiny underwent in Camus’ works, beginning with his essay Myth of Sisyphus up to his work The Rebel. Given this context the paper focuses on the problem of the relationship between the absurd and the metaphysical revolt. The author argues, that according to Camus, it is the revolt (...)

    Awakening Routinists: Consciousness, Quest and Albert Camus.Jason Ryan Herbeck - 2002 - Dissertation, The University of Wisconsin - Madison
    Camus' philosophical and literary works share an intrinsically common ground relative to consciousness and revolt. However, with little exception, past and present scholarship has tended to corral its investigation of these two key issues at the expense of one genre or the other. Subsequent to the oft-discussed symbiosis linking Le mythe de Sisyphe and L'etranger, an increasingly pronounced cleavage divides Camus' literary and philosophical output. Philosophical works such as "Remarque sur la revolte" and L'homme revolte, while stimulating abundant critical discourse (...)

    After Albert Camus's Fall: Reframing Post-Colonial Criticism.Wayne Raymond Hayes - 1999 - Dissertation, The University of Wisconsin - Madison
    The goal of this work is to cause its readers to question post-colonial criticism of Camus. Initially, attention will be directed to the work of Conor Cruise O'Brien, who first presented Camus within the post-colonial frame. Embarrassingly uncomplimentary, Albert Camus of Europe and Africa presented Camus's work in such a way that he could not walk away from the "Algerian Question" uncompromised. Without fully committing himself, O'Brien strongly suggests that, for instance, Meursault killed an Arab because he was French. Camus (...)

    Throughout his life, Albert Camus was deeply concerned with problems of language and representation. Often mislabeled an existentialist or philosopher of the absurd, his skepticism of modern rationality has been well recorded. Yet despite considerable scholarly attention, a satisfactory understanding of Camus's thoughts on language has not been achieved. This essay is an effort to rectify the situation by carefully exploring Camus's use and understanding of symbols. ;By first gleaning a theory of symbolization from the philosophical works of Ernst Cassirer, (...)

    The Philosophical Picaresque From "Lazarillo de Tormes" to Camus' "the Plague".Joan Marlene Kennedy - 1993 - Dissertation, The University of Texas at Dallas
    The purpose of this dissertation is to examine two Spanish Golden Age picaresque novels, the Lazarillo de Tormes and Mateo Aleman's Guzman de Alfarache , in order to explore their philosophical dimension. My underlying hypothesis is the notion that the picaresque is not a literary genre limited to Spain, but rather a narrative expression of a specific philosophic vision that both precedes and survives the Spanish manifestation. The conceptual framework of the picaresque is widespread, with Spain providing a label for (...)
