Philosophy and Theology 20 (1/2):227-242 (2008)
Camus and James are not often thought to have much in common. But both agree that “Is life worth living?” is a fundamental philosophical question, and an examination of the views of each as to what constitutes a life that is worth living reveals striking similarities. Although James freely uses the language of religion which Camus adamantly avoids, they agree that a life worth living is marked by a sense of intimacy and communion with others and with the world itself—and by a resolve to fight against the evils that threaten well-being
